Aubry Sable Rosé Vintage 2012 Premier Cru
Aubry Sable Rosé Vintage 2012 Premier Cru

“The pale-colored 2012 Brut Sablé Rosé Nicolas Francois Aubry is striking in its beauty. The non-dosage style adds briskness, but there is just enough richness to the fruit to balance things out. Cranberry, white pepper and chalky notes add lift and overall precision. The 2012 is 30% Meunier and Pino Noir done in a co-fermentation, along with 25% Petit Meslier, 20% Arbanne, 10% Chardonnay and 5% still Meunier fermented as red wine. Disgorged: January 2016. Drink 2016-2024” Antonio Galloni – Vinous Media

Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition Grand Cru NV
Egly-Ouriet Brut Tradition Grand Cru NV

Based in Ambonnay, Egly-Ouriet are masters of Pinot. They farm organically, and many of the base wines are fermented in barrel. They like long ageing on lees. Dosage is low or zero. These are proper wines: sometimes a bit stern, but always worthwhile. 48 months on lees, disgorged July 2016. Very fine and detailed with lovely citrus and apple core, as well as some pear and nut richness. It’s quite dry and complex with fine herbs and juicy acidity. Grown up and sophisticated, this is fruit-driven but four years on the lees and another 11 months in bottle has given the first signs of toasty maturity.

The dosage is only 3g/l (extra brut!). Perfect as an aperitif, its straightness and its mineral character will whet your appetite. It’s ready to drink now, but may also be laid down for a few years.

Vincent Couche Rose Desir Extra Brut
Vincent Couche Rose Desir Extra Brut

Vincent Couche isn’t afraid to experiment. He made this rosé Champagne by using carbonically macerated Pinot Noir, saignée Pinot Noir and macerating Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Three methods adding to the sheer complexity you’ll find. Dry on the palate but exuding a salmon-colored rosé with aromas of cherries, pomegranate and citrus all at once.
