Life is too short not to drink this bubbly!

I am very proud to announce this stunning Grand Cru GROWER CHAMPAGNE located in the revered hill slopes of Mesnil sur Oger. The Robert Champagne Estate is above all a family business. The Robert family has been cultivating vines for several generations. Henri Robert (1881-1948) began working on vineyards after the 1st  World War when vines were planted “en foule”. In the 1930s he established the first group of ‘growers’ to share equipment needed for pressing and wine-making.

At the start of the 2nd  World War, André Robert (born in 1925) began to work in the vineyard with the use of a horse. In 1960 he bought the Estate (dating back to the 19th century) as it is today with its amazing chalk-stone cellars for ageing. He began to sell his own bottled champagne in 1962. Bathed in the world of champagne throu-ghout his childhood, Bertrand Robert took over the estate in 1961, with his wife Colette joining him in 1990. Bertrand’s daughter, Claire joined her father in 2013 and now works beside him in the vineyards and cellar. These are absolutely stunning champagne offerings… pure and all Grand Cru. Only available in California here at Golden Gate Wine Cellars!

The Andre Robert is a great bubbly!  Sourced from two Grand Cru vineyards in Le Mesnil (mostly 2009 and 2010 vintage). 100% Chardonnay with a dosage from 8-9 g/l, which translates to medium on the “Brut” rating scale.  This wine has gorgeous aromas of pie and citrus and white stone fruit.  On the palate pleasant fruit and the right acidity, amazingly balanced, a real crowd-pleaser.

Winemaker Notes: “Light yellow color. Expressive nose of white flesh fruit, pastries with overriding mineral touches. The mouth is both structured and refreshing with ever-present minerality, finishing on a slightly toasted register.”
