2012 Sablé Blanc de Blancs Brut Nature, Aubry

Ref: AUBR120
White  |  Sparkling  |  12.5% ABV

With a family history of viticulture dating back to the late 18th century, the Aubry, Philippe and Pierre, have something of an obsession with the "lost" grape varieties of Champagne. They work 15 hectares of vineyards split between 60 parcels, including vineyards of the rare Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Pinots Blanc and Gris (here known as Fromenteau).

Tasting Notes
Tasting Notes

"Arbanne, Petit Meslier and Pinot Blanc take center stage in the 2012 Brut Blanc des Blancs Sablé Le Nombre d'Or. Vivid, tense and brilliant, the Blanc des Blancs also has more than enough depth and overall texture to play off the intensely saline, citrus-driven flavors. All the elements meld together effortlessly. Simply put, the Blanc des Blancs is fabulous. Don't miss it. Disgorged in June 2016 with no dosage." Antonio Galloni

Sweetness Explained
Sweetness Explained


All our wines are given a Sweetness Indicator from 1 to 5, with 1 being the driest and 5 being the sweetest.
This can be found for every wine under the Wine Details tab. 

Most red wines are dry and therefore are indicated with a 1. The sweetness becomes more relevant with white wines, sparkling wines and pudding/dessert wines such as Sauternes and Tokaji.
