Andre Robert Collection d'Auteur 2012


The story of André Robert Champagne goes back five generations, rooted in the chalk-rich, grand cru soils of Le Mesnil sur Oger. Henri Robert was a pioneer in the village, organizing its first growers’ association. His son, the eponymous André, purchased the estate house under which a hand-carved, 19th-century cellar now ages the family’s complex, barrel-aged wines. Bertrand Robert, his wife Colette and daughter, Claire, together tend sustainably some 35 acres of grand and premier cru terroir in the Côte des Blancs, a true grower-producer family dedicated to the elegant and expressive character of pure Mesnil Champagne.

A selection from estate vineyards located in the “heart” of the finest, most low-yielding grand cru Mesnil terroir, with pure chalk soils: ‘Les Vaucherots,’ ‘Les Coullemets du Midi,’ ‘Les Finciarts,’ and ‘Les Chetillons.’
