Winemaker Notes

To the eye, the wine is deep gold. On the nose, buttery notes. In the mouth, all the power and the vinosity of the wine are served by a long fresh final finish.

COMMENTARY: The 2012 André Robert Champagne Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Collection d 'Auteur shows the magnificent power and outstanding depth of one of Champagne's most incredible efforts. TASTING NOTES: This wine shines with aromas and flavors of bread dough, earth, and ripe fruit. Serve it with Thai basil, chicken thighs with a light touch of dried chili flakes. (Tasted: September 15, 2021, San Francisco, CA)
RP 94
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Disgorged in September 2020 with three grams per liter dosage, the 2012 Brut Collection d'Auteur is deep and vinous, unwinding in the glass with notes of pear, white flowers and freshly braked bread mingled with subtle hints of citrus zest and bee pollen. Full-bodied, elegantly muscular and seamless, with a deep and concentrated core, bright acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it's a seamless, understated blanc de blanc derived from holdings in prime lieux-dits Les Vaucherots, Les Coullemets du Midi, Les Finciarts and Les Chétillons.

The story of André Robert Champagne goes back generations, and is deeply rooted in the 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 wines. Bertrand Robert and his wife Colette brought the estate into the modern age; yet it is their daughter, Claire Robert and her husband, Jean-Baptiste Denizart, who have taken quality in Mesnil to a whole new level. The traditional vivacity and intensity of grand cru Mesnil Chardonnay remains center stage; yet Clare’s vision of Champagne with more depth and texture—barrel fermentation for young wines and slow maturation in the family’s chalk cellars—has taken form in recent releases. All wines are made from estate-owned grapes and are cared for sustainably by family hands, according to organic principles.

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, . These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Representing the topmost expression of a Champagne house, a vintage Champagne is one made from the produce of a single, superior harvest year. Vintage Champagnes account for a mere 5% of total Champagne production and are produced about three times in a decade. Champagne is typically made as a blend of multiple years in order to preserve the house style; these will have non-vintage, or simply, NV on the label. The term, "vintage," as it applies to all wine, simply means a single harvest year.
