Egly-Ouriet Blanc de Noirs "Les Crayères" Vieilles Vignes, Brut - NV

Item # 33525 750mL

The star wine from Egly-Ouriet if we were forced to choose one. This comes from the single vineyard, Les Crayères, in Ambonnay from Pinot Noir vines planted in 1946. The old vines contribute to the density and you get a magical balance of lush berries and finesse. An incredibly satisfying, complex Champagne.
