Tasting note: Crushed almonds over a peach tart and a touch of cherry juice show in the wine's complex perfumes. Fresh ginger and lemon zest are lively on the palate, with savory notes of lemon butter and toast adding complexity.
About the winery: Egly-Ouriet is based in the grand cru village of Ambonnay, famed for its pinot noir fruit. It is run by the skillful, Francis Egly who practices biodynamic and organic principals in his vineyards which span, Bouzy and Verzenay. Francis makes up a handful of highly talented and terroir-driven producers along with the likes of Anselme Selosse, Larmandier-Bernier and Vouette et Sorbee. These are wines first and he produces deep, powerful and intense styles of champagne. His minimum ageing is around 48-60 months for his non-vintage wines, allowing time to express the inner strength and purity.
