2000 Aubry "Le Nombre d'Or Campanae Veteres Vites" Brut

SKU #1026981

This is the only Champagne that we have that is made from the ancient (and now almost extinct in Champagne) varietals of Fromenteau (pinot gris) Petit Meslier & Arbanne. The last two are unique to the region; they are black skinned grapes that were quite widely planted before the phylloxera louse invaded Champagne. When it came time to replant, their lack of international cachet, combined with lower yields and problems with disease almost wiped them out. The Aubry brothers are one of the few champions of these varietals. The wine is an elegant red fruit style with excellent deliniation of flavor. A must for the complete imbiber! Like almost all Champagne, this wine has relativly low alcohol, 12.5%. -(Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer)

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
