Champagne André Robert

    VILLAGE: Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Grand Cru

    DISTRICT: Côte des Blancs 

    STATUS:  Family Domaine / Single Estate (RM)

    This Le Mesnil-based C tes des Blancs family domaine is undergoing an energetic transition led by Claire Robert who has taken over direction and has now persuaded her husband Jean-Baptiste to join her (and stop commuting to Paris!) as her father Bertrand has retired.  Some 14ha are owned, much spread as far apart as the Marne, Vertus,  Etréchy, and the Vitrayat.  But the heart of the domaine is the 6.5ha in grand cru Le Mesnil itself. Viticulture is as sustainable and  green as possible, with ploughing, and there is now coveted HVE certification. Winemaking combines stainless steel and impeccably managed barriques and a consistently blocked malolactic for all cuvées. rfpipgisgiosgpisf]sfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsfsf

Cyril and Laurence seem to have remarkable feel for the skills of barrel fermentation and management and word is spreading to Paris restaurants and some European exports.  […]

      Champagne Agnès Corbon

      Highly regarded by champagne specialists but rather ‘insider’ until recently, Agnès Corbon’s 3.5ha include parcels in the western Marne Valley as well as the crowning glory of 2ha of Chardonnay in Avize Grand Cru where she is based. She took over the family domaine in 2006 and has fashioned new cuves. Her hallmark is long […]
