The Non-Vintage Blancs de Noirs Vieilles Vignes is a broader-shouldered, more ambitious, full-bodied Champagne than the Non-Vintage Brut Vieilles Vignes. Backward and austere, it offers copious quantities of redcurrant fruit. It is intense, and beautifully pure (as are all these cuvees from Egly-Ouriet).||It was only recently that I discovered and began extolling the wines of Egly-Ouriet. I realize the large Champagne firms dominate Champagne sales in this country, but one of the most encouraging trends is that small, high quality estate bottlers are now beginning to receive some representation. Egly-Ouriet's Champagnes are so good that I have begun buying them to drink chez moi. The new releases are gorgeous examples of just how rich Champagne can be without being too heavy or cumbersome.|Readers will be delighted to know that this small estate prints the date of disgorgement on each bottle, a practice that should be followed by all Champagne producers. Given the intensity of these exquisite wines, they should be drunk with food rather than served as an aperitif.|North Berkeley Wines, Berkeley, CA; tel.
