Collection d'Auteur 2012 Grand Cru, Andre Robert
Type: Sparkling Wine
Grape(s): Chardonnay 100%
Wine Region: Champagne, France
Tasting Notes: This wine, vinified and aged in small barrels , benefited from an exceptionally long time of maturation. Recently disgorged with very low dosage, it reveals all the purity and the depth of this great wine of champagne and of this year of 2012.
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 baked 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 lieuxdits.
Suggested food and wine pairing: A great aperitif or try with shellfish.
