Hands down the best NV Champagne I have tasted. 'Les Crayeres' is 100% Pinot Noir and lives up to its name. Terroir, sense of place, chalky, effortless. Gold and rightfully so.

Disgorged Nov'12. 64 months on the lees. Deep and beautiful and unctuous.

What a lovely champagne. Big and muscular, but everything is still in excellent balance.

My favourite cuvée from Egly - 100% Pinot Noir. No Pinot Meunière Delectable. Only 30 cms of Top soil and the roots go straight into the chalk. One could smell the chalky minerality. Average age of the vines is 40 years - with the oldest planted in Ambonnay in 1946 with base Wine coming from the 2009 and 2010 vintages. Great power Flavour and Intensity.
