Description

“While this prominent grower estate has recently moved to the village of Aÿ, the Geoffroy name is inextricably linked to that of Cumières, where the family has winegrowing roots that date back to the 17th century. Today Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy and his father René farm 14 hectares of vines, 11 of which are in Cumières. A few parcels are located just across the border to the west in the adjacent village of Damery, while the rest is all meunier in the nearby village of Fleury-la-Rivière.”

100% Chardonnay from Cumières 1er Cru.  45% in used demi-muid cask and barrels from Pierre Yves Colin Morey (Burgundy).  108+ months stored sur latte.  No malolactic.  .1g/l dosage.

The chalk on which the Chardonnay vines are cultivated (Cumières), bestows on this Champagne all the elegance, finesse and minerality of this grape variety. A refined and silky mouth reveals a remarkable skeleton, punctuated by delicate aromas of brioche or even fresh butter.
