The Ambonnay based Egly-Ouriet are a reference point for grower producers in Champagne, known for their impeccable vineyard management and fastidious winemaking skills. Much of their production is raised in oak barrels, with extended aging on lees a feature. Brut Tradition is a blend of up of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay from low yielding vines in Grand Cru terroirs, and is a wine that puts to shame many a prestige cuvee at double the price.
A fine satin like mousse shows good hold over a pale straw base with pale gold edgings. Very profuse and exceptionally fine bead. Superb aromatics of baked bread and yeast lees meld with subtle honeyed notes, pear, citrus and lightly roasted cashew. Very faint hazelnut end notes complete a complex sniff. Rich toasty baked bread and yeast lees characters pair with subtle pear and citrus flavours. Refined lacy feel with sculptured acidity lending tension on the mouth watering finish. Also evident are cashew and buttered brioche nuances. Long creamy oily baked bread and yeast lees tinged finish with a bite of refreshing citrus.
Drink over the next 5-6 years.
70% pinot noir, 30% chardonnay from the ’12, ’11 and ’10 vintages, disgorged October ’17 after 51 months on lees. Fourth-generation vigneron, Francis Egly, assumed responsibility in ’82, deciding to bottle the production of 8300 dozen from the 12ha estate. His determination to make only the best quality champagne means he now sells on allocation. This wine is supremely concentrated, and equally classy. Dosage 2g/l.
James Halliday - Australian Wine Companion
The NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru is gorgeous. Rich, resonant and expressive on the palate, but with the freshness that is now part of the house style, the Brut Tradition is wonderfully complete. Dried pear, smoke, crushed flowers and chamomile are finely-knit in this super-appealing, mid-weight Champagne. The current release spent 54 months on its lees, which is decidedly on the long side for a wine in its peer group. Then again, long aging is one of the things that distinguishes these very special, artisan Champagnes from the pack. Disgorged: January 2017.
Antonio Galloni - Vinous
From the very first cuvée, Egly-Ouriet is distinguished for its ability to preserve exacting precision and outstanding chalk mineral focus in the midst of magnificent generosity. A vinous wine of calm authority, carrying the full grandeur and complexity of carefully tended, low-yielding, old vine Pinot Noir on some of Champagne’s most revered grand crus… A paradox of luxurious generosity and crystalline purity.
