2008 L. Aubry Fils - Aubry de Humbert 1er Cru Brut Champagne (89 pts) @champagneaubry @skurnikwines @terrytheise · 🙋♂️ Did you know there are 7 permitted 🍇 varieties in Champagne❓· ℹ️ This Champagne blend contains 30% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Meunier, 30% Pinot Noir, 5% Arbanne, and 5% Petit Meslier. The Chardonnay is aged in used barriques while the rest are aged in stainless steel. The wine undergoes 💯 Malolactic Fermentation. Disgorged in June 2017· 👁 Medium lemon color· 👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of brioche, toast, marzipan, red apple, lemon curd, preserved lemon, and yogurt· 👄 The wine is dry, high acidity, medium alcohol, and medium- body. More pronounced on the palate than the nose with similar flavors. Medium+ length finish· 🔔 I believe this is a non-dosage even though labeled as Brut that is a good catch all. Love seeing some of the more obscure 🍇 varieties in the blend, but so small that I am not sure what they add to the flavor profile. Overall, this represents a great value in Champagne that will improve with bottle age, especially in a vintage like 2008.
