About the Producer

The Champagnes of Francis Egly draw on fruit from old vines in the Grand Cru villages of Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay. This applies as much to his superb Grand Cru Extra Brut NV as to the heralded Crayères and vintage cuvees. The only wines that are not from 100% Grand Cru fruit are the Vignes de Vrigny, which is made from Premier Cru-classified Pinot Meunier and the relatively recently introduced ‘Les Premices’ from the village of Trigny. All of Egly’s wines are aged well beyond the norm before release. Nothing is hurried and each step is meticulous. Each cuvée benefits from extended ageing of at least four years on lees in bottle, way ahead of the statutory minimum for Champagne. The Vieillissement Prolongé (or V.P. for short) is the most dramatic example, spending 84 months on its lees. All of Egly’s wines are low dosage, referring to the amount of sugar in the liqueur d’expedition that is added after the disgorgement process which adjusts the wine’s overall sweetness or dryness. In Egly’s wines, there is nothing to mar the sheer purity. Each wine in his range is capable of developing complexity in the bottle with age. These wines are produced in smaller quantities than most of the Champagnes with which you may be familiar; they are not seeking to further the aspirations of a brand, but rather to represent their origins. They are a far cry from some of commercial output of many famous names in Champagne. Making wines of such high and unerring quality requires not only considerable practical skill, but equally near maniacal focus. That’s exactly what you get with Egly-Ouriet: they are highly individual Champagnes that are now receiving the credit they are due.
