Details

"The NV Brut Premier Cru les Vignes de Vrigny is 100% Pinot Meunier from 40- to 50-year-old vines in Vrigny. The youngest release is based on the 2011 vintage and 50% of reserve wines. It is clear and spicy on the nose, where red apples are displayed and a great purity and elegance is indicated. Disgorged in 2015, this is well-structured, tension-filled and finesse-full Meunier with great purity, grip and aging potential. This charming Meunier should gain more complexity over the next months and years."

“The NV Brut Premier Cru Les Vignes de Vrigny is very pretty and nicely balanced throughout. Yellow stone fruit, apricot, mint, panna cotta and lightly tropical notes all meld together effortlessly. This is an especially supple, open-knit vintage for the Vignes de Vrigny, Egly-Ouriet's pure Meunier. In this release, the Vignes de Vrigny is mostly 2011 vintage, with reserve wines from 2010 and 2009. This is one of the very few base-2011 Champagnes that is worth an extra effort to find. Disgorged November 2015. Dosage is 2 grams per liter."
