This Champagne is composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. All of the fruit is estate grown from the Ariston's vineyards in Brouillet … La Vallée Brouillet might be my very favorite place in all of Champagne. I love the rolling landscape, the mix of mustard, vineyard and colza fields. But most of all I love the quiet peace of this secluded northwestern part of the region. This is the real countryside of Champagne! This area is known for the incredible diversity of fossilized shellfish that can be found in the fields here. The Ariston family makes up a pretty good chunk of the village of Brouillet (population 91), and not only do they make great wine, they also have a great museum with fantastic examples of the fossils of this area. The 2011 Ariston Aspasie Brut Champagne is an even blend of all three varieties, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. This toasty Champagne has wonderful nutty flavors to go along with the extroverted brioche nose. It is perfect with hot, savory gougères and even paté appetizers. A toast to you!
