What to expect


"The 2007 Vintage is a striking, radiant Champagne. Apricot, chamomile, vanillin and lightly honeyed notes give the wine its racy, flamboyant personality. This is an especially voluptuous, opulent wine by present day Egly-Ouriet standards. Francis Egly adds that he picked this fruit very late. Dosage is 4 grams per liter. Disgorged January 2017."

Antonio Galloni, vinous.com July 2017

Technical details: This is 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay from 40 year old vines in Ambonnay, aged completely in barrel, no malo and virtually no dosage with wait for it - 106 months on its lees!

Food Suggestion

There are few growers in champagne with the attention to detail and unashamed passion for producing wines of distinction. Egly Ouriet pronounced (Egg-lee Ou-ri-yay) is based in the grand cru village of Ambonnay, famed for its pinot noir fruit. It is run by the skillful, Francis Egly who practices biodynamic and organic principals in his vineyards which span, Bouzy and Verzenay. Francis makes up a handful of highly talented and terroir-driven producers along with the likes of Anselme Selosse, Larmandier-Bernier and Vouette et Sorbée. These are wines first and he produces deep, powerful and intense styles of champagne. His minimum ageing is around 48-60 months (as declared on his informative back label) for his non-vintage wines, allowing time to express the inner strength and purity. If you’ve never heard of Egly Ouriet before, you are in for a treat. “Few producers can equal Francis Egly in skill and experience, and larger houses cannot hope to emulate the cultivation norms…” Michel Bettane, The World's Greatest Wines.

Food Suggestion


 Perhaps an entree of Foie Gras Patê-style followed by Grilled Lobster tails with butter and herb sauce. No need to be shy, the wine certainly isn't.
