Egly Ouriet Brut Les Premices N.V.

EGLY-OURIET PRODUCES AN OPULENT AND DISTINCTIVE STYLE OF CHAMPAGNE, GAINING A CULT FOLLOWING AMONGST CHAMPAGNE LOVERS.  

 

"Reflecting what is planted in the vineyards, Les Prémices is an equal blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier drawn from mature vines (on average, 40 years old) rooted in clay, sand and sandstone, over chalk bedrock--a soil typical of the Massif de St. Thierry. While this first release is drawn from a single vintage, next year's 2017 base will include 60% reserve wine. As always, the classic Egly manifesto applies here: old vines and low yields; hand-harvesting of fully ripe fruit; no inoculation; long lees aging; no fining or filtration and low dosage etc... One difference here is that the wine was fermented and aged exclusively in tank. The wine spent 36 months on lees and was disgorged with two grams per litre in July 2020." - Bibendum

 

"A new wine in the Egly range, the NV Brut Les Prémices is a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir/Meunier blend from Trigny, all 2016 vintage. Bright floral notes and the natural richness of Pinots come together nicely in this entry-level bottling." - Antonio Galloni, Vinous
