Egly-Ouriet, “Les Vignes de Vrigny” Premier Cru

Hundreds of Champagne producers bottle 100% Pinot Noir or Chardonnay, but only a few names spring to mind when it comes to crafting pure, top-shelf Pinot Meunier: culty Prevost, Chartogne-Taillet, Bérêche, Mignon, Laherte Frères, and, of course, Egly-Ouriet. In the 21st decade, Egly-Ouriet has gone from budding star to global legend with instant sellouts, ever-climbing prices, and some of the highest marks grower champagne has ever seen. In other words, an Egly investment is bullish for life! Fortunately for all of you, the price for “Les Vignes de Vrigny” remains in the realm of sanity—comfortably seated in the double digits—and is one of the most unique gems of the lineup. Every “Vignes de Vrigny” we’ve ever tasted has proven Meunier stands shoulder to shoulder with Pinot Noir as a single varietal Champagne. Just check out some of the snippets from current reviews circulating around: “bready, leesy, chalky,” “very complex and delicious,” “a great balance of power and finesse,” and Galloni’s Vinous says “what impresses me about this release of Egly's pure Meunier is its translucence and finesse.”

They are: Saint Amour; Juliénas; Chénas; Moulin-à Vent; Fleurie; Chiroubles; Morgon; Régnié; Côte de Brouilly; and Brouilly.

Southwestern France


Bordeaux surrounds two rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which intersect north of the city of Bordeaux to form the Gironde Estuary, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The region is at the 45th parallel (California’s Napa Valley is at the38th), with a mild, Atlantic-influenced climate enabling the maturation of late-ripening varieties.

Central France

Loire Valley

The Loire is France’s longest river (634 miles), originating in the southerly Cévennes Mountains, flowing north towards Paris, then curving westward and emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near Nantes. The Loire and its tributaries cover a huge swath of central France, with most of the wine appellations on an east-west stretch at47 degrees north (the same latitude as Burgundy).

Northeastern France


Alsace, in Northeastern France, is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with vineyards running from the foothills of theVosges Mountains down to the Rhine River Valley below.
