This a made from 100% Pinot Meunier..so very dark colour. Revealing roasted almonds with a very full bodied taste. Not so pure and seductive. Best with food (89-91)
Tasted November 13th. Brief thoughts.
NV Egly-Ouriet, Les Vignes de Vrigny, Champagne, France
The colour is golden yellow with a nose that I in my first TN criticized by not being pure enough, but this time no problem if you know you will not get any crisp / freshness from the chardonnay. It’ s very intimidating with burned almonds, breadcrumbs and lots of dark chocolate. Taste is full-bodied and has enough complexity for a NV. High level of drinking pleasure and at 30€ it’s a great fizz. (90)
