LES JARDINS DU MESNIL
The Story of a Family
The Robert Champagne Estate is above all a family business. The ROBERT family have been cultivating vines for several generations.
Claire Robert et ses Parents
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.
la Famille Robert
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.
