Egly-Ouriet Brut Les Vignes de Vrigny
|Region||France, Champagne, Reims|
Few winemakers plant Pinot Meunier on premier cru land; fewer still on terroir that is essentially an extension of the noble Montaigne de Reims. This 100% Pinot Meunier spends 36 months on its lees, far more than any other Pinot Meunier wine in the region. White pepper and lime rind with chalk dust on the nose; very precise. Orange and blood peaches with plenty of ripe citrus notes on the palate-saturated and very thirst-quenching.
