This single-vineyard Champagne is made up of 100% Pinot Noir, from 60 year-old vines in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. With this wine, Francis Egly is trying to resuscitate the true taste of the Montagne de Reims region. This is the way it tasted 50 years ago, when before it was customary to mix in 25-40% Chardonnay. He intends this to be an expression of the vineyard's super-chalky soil, which is a sort of amplified version of Champagne's usual soil composition: 10-11 inches of real soil on the surface, and then solid chalk beneath.

"Explosive aromas meld into a ripe core of perfumed Pinot fruit as the NV Brut Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru Les Crayeres opens up in the glass. This is another big, full-bodied wine endowed with dense, super-ripe red fruit, mint, spices and licorice. Despite the wine’s size there is also tons of clarity and focus. The mousse remains rather fine and elegant, providing a lovely counterpoint to the wine’s otherwise extroverted personality. The Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru is Pinot Noir from the Les Crayeres lieu-dit in Ambonnay that spent 48 months on its lees and was disgorged in July, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2013."
