Got to pop some special bottles when my good friend Shawn came in to town! I was ecstatic to open this and it ended up being one of the most spectacular champagnes I’ve had in recent memory, and possibly one of the most spectacular champagnes I’ve ever had. This single vineyard Blanc de noir from EO spent 6 years (!) on the less and was disgorged July 2018. Gorgeous golden straw color in the glass with minuscule bubbles. A totally dizzying aromatic display of ginger shavings, toffee, caramel dipped golden delicious apples, red berries, orange honey roasted cashews and some beautifully oxidized notes. Rich without being dense, a gorgeous palate profile of hazelnuts, lemon cream, brioche, chalky limestone and a finish that just doesn’t want to stop. This is a marriage of Krug & Taittinger Comtes. Stunning!

Off the Crownshy NYC list, this has a nicely developed medium gold color with young and strong, fine bubbles. Notes of brioche toast, lemon creme, some apricot and river stone. Gave the impression of an older champagne but had the power and freshness of a young wine. My first experience with this producer. Very nice.

Thank you, Francis Egly, for reminding me that there are certain wines which restore my faith in nature, humanity, and life's mysteries. #EglyOuriet #Champagne #latergram

Pay no attention to the wrinkles...48 months on the lees, disgorged July '13. Open for A WEEK in the fridge and just barely peaking. The biggest champers out there.

Sometimes all a ghetto Bastige needs is a little dosage. Boom ! Perfect balance, charming flavors and bright intensity. As George McFong would say 'I am your density'. No Pepsi Free and no Tab you.

Excellent, why drink "X" when you can get dimensions more in complexity and depth. It's rare I find a Champagne that beats almost all the top labels, this one comes pretty close!

Powerful, dense, spicy and intense Champagne. Deep aromas. Immense personality. Gold colour. No aperitif this one, serve with food. The first ever Blanc de Noirs was made by this producer. 'Grower Champagne' avant la lettre! Fruit is harvested from the ancient 'les crayères' ('the chalkmine') vineyard, planted with 100% Pinot Noir in 1947. Marketing budget of Egly-Ouriet? € 0,-

Always in great shape! Drank it blind I guessed a Comtes de Champagne like impression.. which was just nuts because the Taittinger one is a Blanc de Blancs!
