Meunier expresses here as barley, rusks, crackers, and so the wine is rusky, coppery-saline, iodé, mineral and appetizing.

Wine AdvocateThe NV Aubry Brut is a Premier Cru from Jouy-lès-Reims. The wine I have tasted was an assemblage of 45% Meunier, 25% Chardonnay, 25% Pinot Noir and 5% "other" (which means Arbanne et.al.), based on 60% 2011 and 40% "solera" or perpetual reserve, started in 1998. Disgorged in 2/2014, the wine offers a clear and subtle bouquet of white pip fruits, carambola and citrus flavors along with some oak, nut, rye, cracker and spicy flavors. Round and elegant on the palate, this is a clear, dry, well structured and balanced Champagne with a nicely mineral/iodine taste, as well as a very good and characterful finish. It is good as an aperitif but also serves the first courses.
Wine EnthusiastThis is a full, ripe Champagne with a lightly mineral texture. It comes from the northern end of the Montagne de Reims, giving dominance to Pinot Noir. It is a food-style of Champagne, with its dry texture and almond and citric flavors.
