dosage and cellaring potential

I recently read that for champagne to have cellaring potential there must be a certain  sugar level in the dosage (6g/L according to Stevens).  Why is this so?

The passage from Stevens reads:  "...but it should have at least 6 grams if it is likely to be cellared, unless the producer intends for it to develop oxidatively."
