Tasting Notes

In this wine Aubry makes a great case for Champagne's historic varieties, which include little-known Petit Meslier, Arbanne, and Fromenteau. These grapes make up just five percent of the classic blend of Pinots Meunier and Noir with Chardonnay. This elegant wine is copper-laden and snappy with mineraled classic depth, light floral honey aromas, and dark notes of crackers, toasted bread, and pepper. Just a delight to drink and a great wine for appetizers, sashimi, and ceviche.

Staff Pick Notes

Ah yes, the Aubry brothers! A dynamic duo out to prove that “Only big houses can produce great Champagne,” is a mantra that’s pure horseradish! Using only premier cru plots and indigenous (but widely forgotten) varietals, they create distinctive Champagne year after year. A bouquet fit for breakfast, warm biscuits and light honey with white flowers in a small vase. The palate is full of savory secondary fermentation notes, toasted sourdough, cracked pepper, and refreshing lemon zest. With a slam bang finish and acidity that’s just firecrackers. So if you’re in a fix and don’t want to pop yet another bottle of Veuve, call upon the Aubry brothers!

Champagne

Champagne is finally getting the recognition it deserves as a brilliant food wine. For consistency and quality, turn to the big Champagne brands and you’ll never go wrong. Remember that “Non-Vintage” (NV) is not a dirty word here: NV Champagnes are blends of wines from the best growing seasons. But if you can find one, try a Champagne made by a Grower-Producer. These winemakers control every...

Chardonnay

From Champagne to Chablis, it's hard (not to mention unpleasant) to avoid this famous white variety. During a huge popularity surge beginning in the late 1980s, Chardonnay plantings have increased dramatically -- not only in California's wine country, with which the variety is nearly synonymous, but also in Burgundy (its original, Old World home) and just about everywhere else in the winemaking...
