Egly-Ouriet VP Extra Brut NV, 2011 Base

70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay. This went into bottle in July 2012, so we can assume the 2011 base vintage. This might account for the slightly muted performance here, although it is very, very good. Peach tart with cream, creamy raspberries and blackberries, just a gorgeous breadth of golden fruit on the palate. Creamy weight and fruit combination is almost a bit monolithic for now, although there are some touches of spice and very mild oxidative tones too. Probably drunk too soon (6 months) after disgorgement still.
