Collection d'Auteur Vintage 2012 - Champagne André Robert

Collection d’auteur – 2012



The Cuvée “Collection d’Auteur” is crafted exclusively from Chardonnays from Mesnil-sur-Oger, mainly from the heart of the terroir. The selected plots vary depending on the tastings of the clear wines of the year. We often find the following named places: Les Vaucherots, Les Coullemets du Midi, Les Finciarts, Les Chétillons, which are parcels with very low yields, with a maximum of 5000 to 6000 kg/ha, producing grapes with significant total acidity and low pH, allowing us to harvest them very late and thus at full phenological maturity. These grapes enable us to produce wines of great depth, while preserving nobility and freshness.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - 94

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.

Wilfred Wong - 97

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.
