History : André Robert is a small family estate that has been growing and producing great champagnes for several generations. On Mesnil sur Oger, in the Côte des Blancs. For the history, it was in 1960 that André Robert gave birth to the vineyard as it is today and started bottling and selling his own champagne in 1962 (which was extremely rare at the time).
Today: Bertrand Robert and his daughter, Claire, run the 14 hectare estate. They focus primarily on Chardonnay from their HVE (High Environmental Value) certified vineyards on Les Mesnil sur Oger. Bertrand ages many of his base wines in oak barrels, keeping them on the lees for seven months without malolactic conversion, to add complexity and roundness to his champagnes.
Grapes : hardonnay, Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier
Domaine André Robert produces a "producer" champagne, growing its own grapes and making its own wine on site. This qualitative difference is crucial for those who seek the ultimate in Champagne flavor and character.
The grapes are harvested by hand and carefully sorted in the cellar. A gentle pressing is used, and sulfur additions are very modest. Most of the wines are fermented in barriques, demi-muids or French oak barrels, with an average age of 12 years (older oak allows oxygen transfer without excessive aroma). Young wines remain in barrel for ten to eleven months, usually without lees stirring; malolactic conversion is usually blocked, in order to preserve the natural acidity and freshness of the wines.
All wines undergo a second fermentation in the bottle in the family's old chalk cellars, located under the family home in Mesnil.
