L. Aubry et Fils, Brut Rosé 1er Cru Jouy-lès-Reims (2013)

Aubry Brut Rose NV #1

Imported by Terry Theise and Michael Skurnik Wines, Syosset NY.

Five years on (Aubry’s non-vintage rosé comes entirely from a single year). A blended Rosé composed of 60% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, 20% Meunier (15% still wine) from a parcel called Les Noues, in Jouy-lès-Reims.  All 2013 vintage.  Dosage: 3 g/l.  Disgorged January 2016.

Orange-pink.  Sloe and fennel with an invigorating tartness.  For all its brightness the texture of the wine is almost custardy.  A beguiling Rosé, rich with tension and counterpoint.  The finish is studiously dry.  Now – 2023+.
