Champagne Egly-Ouriet Les Vignes de Vrigny 1er Cru

Made from 100% Pinot Meunier with oak treatment.

Champagne Egly-Ouriet Les Vignes de Vrigny 1er Cru

Deep yellow gold color with fine mousse and rich smooth bubbles. I love the well developed, intense and rich nose of this Champagne. Strong aromas of yeast, refined citrus fruit with a touch of vanilla and plenty of yellow spice dance in the glass.  Fullness, ripeness and elegance come to mind when tasting this Champagne. Rich and expressive on the palate, this has a very pronounced vinosity. It is just at the border between a still white wine and a sparkling, successfully balancing the richness of a classy white and the liveliness of a Champagne . Long, spicy and citric finish. I really love this style of Champagne. (92-93/100)

This is my second 100% Pinot Meunier Champagne after La Closerie des Beguines from Jerome Prevost and I am even more tempted to seek more PM based Champagnes.
