L. Aubry Fils Brut
|Brand||L. Aubry Fils|
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. The most remarkable thing about Aubry is that, through almost archaeological search for old plant varieties, they have succeeded in making a brilliant Champagne out of three forgotten grape types: Pinot Gris, Arbanne, and Petit Meslier. Furthermore many grapevines are planted "en foule," as they were before phylloxera.
Light-bodied and open-knit in texture, this dry, aperitif style offers fresh flavors of crunchy apple, yellow plum, smoky mineral and biscuit. Disgorged February 2014. Drink now through 2017.
