Rich and complex—almond pastry, mandarin orange, Meyer lemon, red apple skin and herbs, and probably some other yummy things too

Prefer less oak with Champagne, but Egly is always masterfully executed.

My second bottle in as many weeks of Egly-Ouriet’s Brut Tradition Grand Cru. Hands down my favorite under $100 Champagne.

Ultra pungent and what I can only describe as sultry stone fruit pastry. There’s an underlying layer of floral and mineral purity that’s both exotically gorgeous and subtlety confounding. The edges are tinged with ripe apple and Meyer lemon, and ride the lengthy finish on a bolt of acidity. Stunning.

These are so good after some bottle time post-disgorgement. Noticeable increase in complexity and length, open for business. Rich, vinous, powerful, classic Ouriet style of gentle oxidation balanced by pristine acid. “White Burgundy with bubbles.” Breadth and depth, golden orchard fruits, slightly baked, cherry blossom, sweet citrus, hazelnut, toffee, curd, chalk and wood spice, savory mushrooms, damp chalk, jasmine, kiss of honey. Grippy, lengthy, zippy, all the best things at once. 70 PN 30 CH, 52 months on lees, 11/2015 disgorgement.

My favorite Champagne. Initially explosive on the palate then blouses up and keeps all his attributes reserved. A little one dimensional but still love Egly’s style.

Ooooh yes! Unfortunately we sucked this bottle down before we finished prepping the steak tartare. Oh well.
