DESCRIPTION
  • 100% Pinot Meunier from a single, 40-year-old, south-facing vineyard in Vrigny, a commune located on the Petite Montagne de Reims. Straight Pinot Meunier remains a rarity in Champagne and in Egly's hands it is something special. Low yields, old vines and ripe fruit make this one of the most intense Meunier wines kicking around. Spicy, fruity, fleshy, yet very dry and mineral.

  • REVIEWS

    'Egly-Ouriet crafts one of Champagne's most flattering single-vineyard Pinot Meuniers, faithfully translating every detail of the succulent depth of this grape's enticing full golden yellow hue and its fleshy Mirabelle plum, red cherry, dried pear and grapefruit character.'
    95 Points - Tyson Stelzer, The Champagne Guide

    'This is a stylish and rich Champagne with peach, orange peel and hints of pie crust character on the nose and palate. Dense and rich yet agile and fresh. A delicious Champagne offering more than just an aperitif.'
    92 Points - James Suckling

    'From sandy clay soils, the recent release of the NV Brut Premier Cru Les Vignes de Vrigny is a pure Pinot Meunier based on the 2013 harvest. The wine has a delicate bouquet and is very fine and silky on the palate. This is an elegant, perfectly round and delicate Vrigny with moderate pressure and mousse. The finish is clear, fresh and mineral. Tasted at the Trait d'Union in Vertus, April 2018. Disgorged in November 2017.'
