Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition

Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition NV

Champagne, FranceOne of the forerunners of the grower champagne movement, Egly-Ourier is a forth generation producer, centered in Ambonnay, farming his old vines organically and biodynamically. 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, predominantly from Ambonnay with the rest coming from Grand Cru Verzenay and Bouzy. Approximately 50 percent barrel fermented, this is expansive and powerful on the full palate, with finely filigreed lemon acidity throughout to brighten the heft. A creamy bed of earthy lees, smoked stones, gentle cherry and lemon curd grounds this wine, while a potent line of citrus acidity carries it.Tasted: 15 March 2017Tasted by: Treve RingPrices: BC 110.00 private wine shops Producer: Champagne Egly-OurietBlend: Pinot Noir - Chardonnay
