the aubry brothers—identical twins—make champagnes of real character and intensity, putting to use of some of the region’s half-forgotten ancient varieties like arbanne, petit meslier, and fromenteau. their meunier-dominant non-vintage brut isn’t your usual entry-level bottle, either: aromatic, rich, and deeply mineral, it seems to feel both weightless and incredibly dense. this is champagne with a point of view, and, better, one you don’t need to own a hedge fund to enjoy—you’ve wasted $40 on something more frivolous than this. anyway... i remain convinced that most of the world’s misunderstandings could be solved in a single evening with the right champagne on the table.

Crisp apple and green pear and super light biscotti, cleansing finish. Great by the pool in this weather!! Disgorged August 2017

For the price, this is one stellar example of RM, it's got a richness yes, but at the same time such a beautiful minerality & length.

Really digging the Meunier core this has. I like these full malo/low dosage wines, always have plump nose and attack with zip to keep them fresh, never feeling too chunky. Never found Aubry to be the most compelling Champagne but delicious value across the board, great for every occasion, lots of personality. Disgorged 10/2015

Disgorged 12/2015.

Probably a bit of palate inconsistency on my part but I slightly prefer this over my previous stash (disgorged 9/2014).
At $32 this is HIGHLY RECOMMENDABLE!
