Egly-Ouriet’s Pinot Meunier Praised in WSJ

Jan 8, 2018

Happy New Year, everyone!

You no doubt enjoyed a lovely bottle (or a few) of great grower Champagne over the holidays. But really, you should be enjoying grower Champagne all year round — vinous, flavorful, able to pair with a range of foods, grower Champagne is great wine that just happens to have delightful bubbles!

This article in The Wall Street Journal over the holiday examines a grape that often doesn’t enjoy the spotlight, except when truly talented professionals — like our long-time partner and grower Champagne pioneer Francis Egly — gives it the respect it deserves.

Egly-Ouriet’s ‘Vignes de Vrigny’ is a 100% Pinot Meunier wine, grown on the chalky soils of the Montagne de Reims. A peerless wine from premier cru terroir, ‘Vrigny’ is worth a discovery. Read the piece (subscription required, sorry) and then grab yourself a bottle.
