Stunning grower champagne sourced from 40-year-old Grand Cru vines on pure chalk. About 70% of the base wine is from 2016 with the remaining being reserve 2013 wine. Highly aromatic with green apple skin, quince, brioche, seashells and lemon oil leading the way. Compact bubbles glide over a buttery-silky texture before an elegant mousse takes over. Finishes, crisp and chalky with a refreshing mouth-watering acidity to cleanse the palate.
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.
