Egly-Ouriet is a premier Champagne producer in Ambonnay, and thanks to its exceptional quality and miniscule production, has reached cult status as one of the elite grower producers in all of Champagne. Egly-Ouriet has vineyards in Bouzy, Verzenay and Ambonnay, all primarily Grand Cru Pinot Noir based villages. However, they are one of the few producers in the region to have Pinot Meunier vineyards in the Premier Cru village of Vrigny and produce a bottling of 100% Pinot Meunier he calls, "Les Vignes de Vrigny." This is a fascinating Champagne with all the power and elegance of his Grand Cru Pinots but with a distinctive Meunier character that's a little more delicate with a white floral/jasmine nose and yellow/green apple flavors on the palate. It has a long, persistent, slightly tart finish and wonderful, streamlined balance. A very unique and satisfying Champagne!
