Refined and racy, with hints of butterscotch and marzipan leading to flavors of quince paste, lemon meringue, black currant candy and smoky mineral. Citrusy acidity drives through to the moderate finish. - Wine Spectator
Rècoltant-Maniouland in Ambonnay, Francis Egly become an extraordinary personality thanks to extremely expressive Champagne. Francis is a traditional producer: fermentations occur in wooden and there are no filtrations. Vineyards are between the ages of 40 and 65. The respect for nature is exeptional: no use of fertilizers and Claude Bougigion's consulence.
Egly-Ouriet practises thinning, that is very rare in Champagne. Through thinning they reduce the yield of almost 50% harvesting better quality grapes.
Wines mature from 3 to 5 years in the winery. The use of sulfure is very low with a minimal dose.
