  • Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat until hot but not smoking. Add onion, garlic, and celery; cook, stirring occasionally, until soft, about 8 minutes. Add fresh mushrooms and salt; cook, stirring occasionally, until most of liquid has evaporated and mushrooms are soft, about 12 minutes. Raise heat to high. Add wine, reserved mushrooms and liquid, stock, and 1 1/2 cups water; bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low; cook 30 minutes. Add chopped tarragon.

  • Fill another medium saucepan 3/4 full with water; bring to a bare simmer over medium heat. Crack eggs into pan; cook until whites are set but yolks are slightly runny, 3 to 4 minutes.

  • Divide soup among 4 bowls. Transfer an egg to each bowl; divide cheese among eggs. Season each serving with pepper, and garnish with a tarragon sprig.
