Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition Grand Cru Champagne

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate 93pts:

Golden-yellow in color the, NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru is a deep, pure, extremely fine and complex assemblage of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay cultivated in three grands crus: Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay. The wine I tasted was mainly based on 2007 (50%), 2006 (30%) and 2005 (20%) ,and disgorged after 54 months in January 2014 with a dosage of three or four grams per liter. Super refined, fresh and pure but also deep, ripe and complex on the highly elegant nose, this superb champagne reveals a great elegance, balance and super finesse as well as complexity, structure and length on the palate. An admirable Cuvee!

From the importer:

Aromas of fresh pears, light pepper, red fruit. Flavors of mixed red fruits, lemon zest, mixed peppers; creamy.

70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay Estate vineyards (planted in the 1970s) are located in the villages of Ambonnay, Verzenay and Bouzy. Soils combine chalk and limestone with a vine age of 40 years, on average
