The 2011 Brut Millésime Grand Cru is a very pretty wine, especially within the context of the year. Bright floral notes meld into hints of lemon confit, tangerine oil, dried flowers, sage and pastry. There is terrific freshness to the 2011. Even so, this is very clearly one of the finest 2011s.

70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay./ ABV 12.5%

Description

It was right after the second World War that the Egly House was born, when Francis Egly’s Grandfather started in the wine business. Today, the vineyard covers about 17 hectares, eight of which are located in Ambonnay and the rest in Bouzy, Verzenay and Vrigny. Two thirds are planted of Pinot noir and the rest is shared between Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay. The soil is clay-limestone and benefits from a south-east exposure. All the work is reasoned farming. Depending on the harvest’s and the wine’s characteristics, Francis Egly, the current owner, varies the barrels in which the wine is going to age. He believes in the importance of letting every terroir express itself, instead of following a steady recipe. Of the 150,000 bottles produced every year, only 100,000 are sold, and the rest are kept as reserve—today Egly-Ouriet has no less than 700,000 bottles in reserve.
