Off the Crownshy NYC list, this has a nicely developed medium gold color with young and strong, fine bubbles. Notes of brioche toast, lemon creme, some apricot and river stone. Gave the impression of an older champagne but had the power and freshness of a young wine. My first experience with this producer. Very nice.

Thank you, Francis Egly, for reminding me that there are certain wines which restore my faith in nature, humanity, and life's mysteries. #EglyOuriet #Champagne #latergram

Pay no attention to the wrinkles...48 months on the lees, disgorged July '13. Open for A WEEK in the fridge and just barely peaking. The biggest champers out there.

Sometimes all a ghetto Bastige needs is a little dosage. Boom ! Perfect balance, charming flavors and bright intensity. As George McFong would say 'I am your density'. No Pepsi Free and no Tab you.

Excellent, why drink "X" when you can get dimensions more in complexity and depth. It's rare I find a Champagne that beats almost all the top labels, this one comes pretty close!

Powerful, dense, spicy and intense Champagne. Deep aromas. Immense personality. Gold colour. No aperitif this one, serve with food. The first ever Blanc de Noirs was made by this producer. 'Grower Champagne' avant la lettre! Fruit is harvested from the ancient 'les crayères' ('the chalkmine') vineyard, planted with 100% Pinot Noir in 1947. Marketing budget of Egly-Ouriet? € 0,-

Always in great shape! Drank it blind I guessed a Comtes de Champagne like impression.. which was just nuts because the Taittinger one is a Blanc de Blancs!
