This small, family-run estate is one of the few properties in the region to use Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Fromenteau – traditional grapes seldom seen today. There is a purity to the fruit at Aubry that is striking. The wines typically see very low dosage of just 2-3 grams. The truth is these wines don’t need much. Readers should do whatever they can to taste these unique, compelling Champagnes.
The Brut Premier Cru is a gorgeous wine, and a great introduction to the house style. Lemon, white flowers, mint, crushed rocks are some of the many notes that take shape in the glass as this refined Champagne shows off its impeccable class and total pedigree. The Premier Cru is 45% Pinot Meunier, 25% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 5% Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Fromenteau. The high percentage of red grapes is felt in the wine’s breadth, while the aromas and flavors remain fresh, vibrant and beautifully nuanced throughout. This is a fabulous entry-level offering. Disgorgement date: June 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016. " Nov 2012
Winery: "The nose offers fruity notes of white peach and raspberry. In the mouth, the roundness and flavor of Meunier coat a structure that remains firm and toned. Long, square, this is a wine with a strong personality."
