Terry Theise - ???Meunier expresses here as barley, rusks, crackers, and so the wine is rusky, coppery-saline, iod??, mineral and appetizing. ??It???s beautifully expressive of a corner of Champagne, and tastes as though it were fined with sel gris. ??This year it???s 50% 2013 and 50% a perpetual reserve started in 1998. Deg 1/2016, it???s 55% Meunier (higher than usual), 25% CH, 20% PN and 5% ???other??? (which means basically everything that wouldn???t fit in the vats); it???s in form, brassy and oyster; after a dip a couple years ago (for which we have our old friend 2011 to thank) this is better than ever.???

Review: ???This contains just one-quarter each Chardonnay and Pinot; 45% Meunier; and a mixture of Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Fromenteau (a.k.a. Pinot Gris). Nearly half of it is reserve wine, and more than half of that from a solera going back to 1998. If that sounds like a recipe for delivering complexity, you???re right and won???t be disappointed! Bittersweet perfume suggestive of gentian and iris mingles with intimations of fresh lime and sea breeze that in turn manifest themselves on a seductively silken palate in both juicy, vivacious exuberance and mouthwatering saliva-inducement. A scallop-like sweetly saline and mineral amalgam takes hold in a vibrant finish that leaves me caught between the urge to linger and the urge to take the next sip. This exceptional value by appellation standards is almost sure to prove worth following for several years, even if, sadly, few wine enthusiasts are likely to put that prediction to the test.???

General:

??

Richard Juhlin - ???In the heart of Petit Montagne de Reims, the twin brothers Pierre and Philippe Aubry have shouldered a wine-growing legacy dating from 1790, with 16.5 hectares from 60 individual locations. Pierre, with a national diploma in oenology and Philippe with biology as his nisch run this small company nowadays in a highly innovative way. The yield is low and only ???coeur de cuv??e??? is used for the vintage wines. The grapes are divided into five classes according to their quality, and a considerable amount is vinified in old, traditional 205-litre oak barrels. The most remarkable thing about Aubry is that they have succeeded in making a brilliant Champagne out of three forgotten grape types, after an almost archaeological search for old plant varieties, Furthermore, many grapevines are planted ???en foule,??? as they were before phylloxera. The wines are very interesting and rich in flavour. 2000 Nombre d'Or with 40 percent arbanne, 20 percent petit meslier, 25 percent pinot gris, 5 percent pinot noir, 5 percent pinot meunier och 5 percent chardonnay must be the most remarkable composition of grapes in Champagne. A very interesting and singular issue with oxidative style. Old-fashioned and with certain fleshy tones that make one think of Bollinger. Smoky and intense.???

??

Peter Liem - ???Vinification is all in stainless steel tank. 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.???
