Egly-Ouriet Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru

This 100% Pinot Noir cuvee comes from the Les Crayeres vineyard in Ambonnay that was planted in 1946.

 

It was right after the second World War that the Egly House was born, when Francis Egly’s Grandfather started in the wine business with 3 hectares of vine in the Grand Cru area of Ambonnay. By buying them and then with a wedding to Madame Ouriet, the descendants Michel and Francis acquired another 9 hectares, among which the wonderful plot of Crayères, where vines are more than 60 years old.

In total, the vineyard, where the vine’s average age is 40 years, covers around 10 hectares on the Grand Cru areas of Ambonnay, Bouzy, and Verzenay, with two thirds of Pinot noir and the rest shared between pinot meunier and Chardonnay. The soil is clay-limestone, like every remarkable vineyard in France, and benefit from a south-south-east exposure. All the work is reasoned farming.
