Egly-Ouriet Grand Cru Brut Tradition

Francis Egly is one of the top handful of Champagne growers on everyone’s lips in the region at the moment, and rightfully so. His Brut Tradition is signature Egly – brilliantly crafted yet capturing the power of low yielding pinot noir in champagnes finest villages, within a profile of fresh definition and mineral character. A wonderfully expressive personality of red fruits, wild strawberries and cherries meshes with notes of vanilla and the taut definition of lemon zest, pulling into a scintillating and eminently textured finish, reflecting both its oak fermentation and the mineral structure of Egly’s magnificently positioned vineyards. $95 at Champagne Gallery.
