Champagne Aubry NV Premier Cru Brut Rose
Aubry NV ROSE BRUT
Winemakers Notes: 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... Aubry's non-vintage Rosé also comes entirely from a single year, although this is obviously not stated on the label. It's a blended Rosé, usually composed of about 60 percent Chardonnay and 25 percent Pinot Noir, together with 15 percent of red wine made from old meunier vines in a parcel called Les Noues, in Jouy-lès-Reims.
91 Points, Wine Spectator: "Bright and tangy, with saline and smoke notes underscoring the flavors of Roma apple, cherry and crunchy white peach. Lacy in texture, presenting a firm, minerally finish."
91 Points, The Wine Advocate: "The NV Brut Rose is classy and elegant through and through. It shows lovely energy and focus in its freshly cut sweet roses, red berries and minerals. All of the aromas and flavors flow gracefully from this tense, precise Rose. Floral notes add further brightness and polish on the striking finish. This is a terrific showing."
