Egly-Ouriet Extra Brut, Grand Cru, Champagne, France NV
The wines of Egly-Ouriet are know for being vinous and complex. Some have even called these wines 'Burgundy with bubbles'. Francis Egly is currently at the helm of this property & the one responsible for the estate now bottling 100% of its production. The secret to their vinous & complex bubbles is old vines, low yields & ripe fruit. Not only that, but these wines see extended lees aging as well as 3 years in the cellar before they are released to the market.
