Winemaker Notes:  75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay from 35- to 40-year-old vines; 100% grand cru. Crushed almonds over a peach tart and a touch of cherry juice show in the wine's complex perfumes. Fresh ginger and lemon zest are lively on the palate, with savory notes of lemon butter and toast adding complexity and depth. A remarkably fresh yet profound "basic" brut that is leagues above many other comparable bottles.

CRITICAL ACCLAIM


Wilfred Wong - "One of the most under-the-radar Champagne houses to the public-at-large, Egly-Ouriet enjoys an incredible following amongst the most knowledgeable wine professionals. Whenever I see this wine at a trade/media tasting, there is always a line of people waiting patiently for a taste. The Brut Tradition Grand Cru—made from 75% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay from 35- to 40-year-old vines—exhibits exquisite elegance. Complex and intricate—with flavors of green apples, mineral, yeast, and dried citrus rind from start to finish—this would be my pick for a pairing with toro—fresh tuna belly sashimi."


Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "Golden-yellow in color the, NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru is a deep, pure, extremely fine and complex assemblage of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay cultivated in three grands crus: Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay. The wine I tasted was mainly based on 2007 (50%), 2006 (30%) and 2005 (20%) ,and disgorged after 54 months in January 2014 with a dosage of three or four grams per liter. Super refined, fresh and pure but also deep, ripe and complex on the highly elegant nose, this superb champagne reveals a great elegance, balance and super finesse as well as complexity, structure and length on the palate. An admirable Cuvee!"


Wine Spectator - "Chiseled acidity provides firm definition for this chalky Champagne, though it's swathed on the palate by a creamy range of flavors, including passion fruit coulis, toasted almond, blood orange sorbet and lime blossom. A streak of salinity races on the finish."


James Suckling - "Disgorged in January 2015, this has a majestic, commanding and rich nose. Aromas of spiced blood orange, grilled nuts and honey all make for a complex and engaging proposition; there's a toffee and brul‚e-like layer too, with baked apples and spice. The palate's bold, powerful and makes a grand statement of black grape depth. Flavorsome blueberry, cherry and peach pastry notes run long amid smooth-honed phenolics. Drink now or up to five years if you prefer to embrace more richness."


Vinous - "Even though it was only Disgorged: a few months ago, the NV Brut Tradition Grand Cru is super-expressive. The Brut Tradition brings together parcels in Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay that, together, yield a Pinot-driven Champagne with tremendous breadth as well as cut. Red fruit, dried flowers, mint, spice and lemon confit are some of the aromas and flavors that build in this wonderfully open-knit, inviting Champagne from Egly-Ouriet. Disgorged: July, 2020. Drinking window: 2021 - 2030"
