The Aubry estate is in the village of Jouy les Reims in the western part of the Montagne de Reims. Twin borthers Pierre and Philippe farm parcels in the limestone and clay soils of Jouy, as well as sites in three other premiere cru villages: Pargny les Reims, Villedommange, and Coulommes la Montagne.

Aubry also farms one and a half hectares of ancient grape varieties still permitted by A.O.C. law. Their plantings of Petit Mesilier, Fromenteau (Pinot Gris) and Arbanne were completed in 1989 to mark the 200 year aniversary of grape growing by the Aubry family. Aubry makes two different cuvees to showcase these rare grapes. The Le Novembre d'Or Veteres Vites blends all seven permissible grapes in the Champagne Appelation: Pinot Gris, Pinot Blanc Petit Mesleir, Arbanne, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay. The Blanc de Blanc Le November d'Or Sable Brut blends Petit Meslier, Arbanne and Chardonnay all from parcels in Jouy les Reims. Sable is named for the French word for fettle or fine, referring to this cuvee's lower atmospheric pressure; four atmospheres, rather than the normal six.

TASTING NOTES: Vinous 91 points Raspberry, cherry pit, white pepper and a kick of nutmeg lift from the glass in the NV Brut Rose. A precise, finely knit Champagne, the Rose hits all the right notes. The flavors are precise, subtle and beautifully delineated throughout. What a gorgeous wine this is. Dosage is 3 grams/liter. Disgorged: January 2015. .Antonio Galloni, November/2015

Wine Spectator 91 points 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. Disgorged July 2014. Drink now through 2018. 75 cases imported. AN .October/2015
