Champagne Andre Robert
The Robert Champagne Estate is above all a family business. The Robert...
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 wine-farmers in order 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 as it is today with its amazing chalk-stone cellars for ageing dating back to the 19th century – and began to sell his own bottled champagne in 1962.
Bathed in the world of champagne throughout his childhood, Bertrand Robert took over the estate in 1961, with his wife Colette joining him in 1990.
The vineyard is spread over 14 hectares, for the most part classified Grand Cru and Premier Cru plots. They cultivate the 3 grape varieties : Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. But Chardonnay is the heart and soul of the estate and is the major share of all their blends. The Chardonnay is a fragile and delicate plant but contributes flowery, citric and mineral overtones to our blends making for elegant and racy wines.
