Non-discountable item
On the nose this Premier Cru Champagne exhibits very fruity notes of white peach and raspberries. It is round on the palate and enveloped in aromas of wheat and grains, the structure remains firm and toned throughout. The long finish hints at a strong personality of the wines used for this blend.
Robert Parker: The NV Brut is a pretty, graceful wine layered with expressive red fruit, dried roses and sweet herbs. It shows plenty of the house’s understated finesse and personality. The finish is round, caressing and totally inviting. The NV Brut makes a great introduction to the wines of Aubry, one of Champagne’s most fascinating growers. The NV Brut is 25% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir, 45% Meunier and 5% other grapes. This version is 45% 2008 juice and 55% a solera reserve spanning vintages 1999-2007. Disgorged July 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2011-2015.

Aubry is a winemaker who utilizes the ongoing solera blending system for his non-vintage Champagne, so this is 60% 2007 and 40% of last year's blend, a bit more than usual. The grapes are 50% Meunier and 25% each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. This wine has improved dramatically the last three years; it was always crackery but now it’s more iodé than before, more saline and mineral, as if it were fined with sel gris

Vinification is all done in stainless steel tanks. In addition, the malolactic is always encouraged, as the Aubrys feel that acidity is never lacking in the wines, and they would prefer to have slightly lower acidities and be able to use a very low dosage than have high acidities and be forced to dose the wines more - Peter Liem
