Egly Ouriet Brut Grand Cru Millésime 2004 - "This is a classic" WA

Back in the olden days, the Champagne market was dominated by the Grande Marques and no one hardly cared for those so-called "grower champagnes"; but as the drinkers grew more sophisticated and demanded for more, they started to look beyond the commercial bottles that we are all so well acquainted with, and that's when the grower champagnes started to come into the spotlight. Despite not being Grand Marques, many of these grower champagnes has been creating world-class wines for many years, and one of the most iconic Grower Champagnes is none other than Egly-Ouriet which was praised by wine critic Antonio Galloni to be "at the very top of the pecking order in Champagne today".

Located in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay which is home to some of the greatest Pinot Noir in all of France, Francis Egly was determined to take their Pinot Noir-dominant Champagnes up another few notches from where it already was when he took over from his father in 1980, and proceeded to switch to organic practices and reduced yields. In addition to the meticulous work done in the vineyards, Francis was equally attentive throughout the winemaking process. He harvests very ripe grapes, keeps only the first pressing using very gentle extraction and ages in barrel for years longer than most other counterparts, he creates absolutely beautiful Champagnes that truly expresses the terroir which the wines came from.
Egly-Ouriet is one of the best grower champagne to follow and we are delighted to offer a parcel of Grand Cru Brut Millesime 2004 at only HK$2,100 per bottle, kept on lees for 100 months and disgorged in November 2013, it completely presents the style of Ambonnay and is a tremendous cuvee not to be missed:

Golden in color, the 2004 Brut Millésime Grand Cru offers an intense and precise aroma of slightly toasted whole-grain bread, brownish apples, apple strudel, oranges, dried fruits, raisins, brioche, and hints of mocha and nougat. This full-bodied yet lovely, really pure and dry wine is very elegant, quite expressive on the palate, and finishes with a refreshing lime aroma and citric acidity. This is a classic for fans of complex Champagnes of great purity and finesse. The wine is very well structured and quite firm in the finish and aftertaste, and can be stored for 4-5 years. The wine was sourced from old vines in grands cru vineyards of Ambonnay and bottled for the second fermentation without filtration. It was then kept on the lees for 100 months and disgorged in November 2013.
