Precise and meticulous worker, Francis Egly is in the firmament of Champagne. With his magnificently situated vineyards in grand cru (Ambonnay, Bouzy and Verzenay, pinot noir and chardonnay) and premier cru (Vrigny, pinot meunier), he makes prodigious wines of vinosity, intensity and noble character, always on the razor's edge between the great maturity of the grapes and a fine chalky minerality. All his vintages are vinified in wood and without malolactic fermentation. Critics are enthusiastic about the standard cuvée "Grand cru Brut" with "Blanc de Noirs Vieilles Vignes", 100% pinot noir, rated 18.5/20 by M. Bettane. "Égly-Ouriet sets the tone for all Champagne viticulture with vintages of sidereal depth".

Created in 2020, the new cuvée "Les Prémices" is a blend, in equal parts, of chardonnay, pinot meunier and pinot noir. A perfect entry-level wine, fresh and elegant.


Rated 90/100 by Antonio Galloni (Vinous) « A new wine in the Egly range, the NV Brut Les Prémices is a Chardonnay/Pinot Noir/Meunier blend from Trigny, all 2016 vintage. Bright floral notes and the natural richness of Pinots come together nicely in this entry-level bottling. » (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 92/100 by Antonio Galloni (Vinous) « The NV Brut Les Vignes de Vrigny 1er Cru is gorgeous in the way it balances the natural depth of Meunier with real energy and vibrancy. Dried pear, spice and crushed flowers all open in the glass, but what impresses me about this release of Egly's pure Meunier is its translucence and finesse. » (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 92/100 by Antonio Galloni (Vinous) « The NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru is distinguished, among other things, by the five years it spent on its lees, which is quite long for Rosé Champagne. Bright and beautifully sculpted, the Rosé sizzles with tension and yet it also possesses a sense of inner suaveness that is impossible to miss. This is such a classy wine. » (Nov. 2020)

    Rated 94/100 by Antonio Galloni (Vinous) « The 2011 Brut Millésime Grand Cru is a very pretty wine, especially within the context of the year. Bright floral notes meld into hints of lemon confit, tangerine oil, dried flowers, sage and pastry. There is terrific freshness to the 2011, although not quite the dimension of the very best years. Even so, this is very clearly one of the finest 2011s. » (Nov. 2020)
