Geoffroy & Gimonnet: Authentic Champagnes


The brilliance of good Grower Champagne is inarguable.  It is the pursuit of true artisans. The best grower Champagnes possess charisma and complexity in abundance – and can be the equal of any wine in the region. We are proud to represent two of the very finest producers in this category: Champagne Geoffroy and Pierre Gimonnet & Fils.

These wines are completely different stylistically but actually share a lot of similarities in philosophy.

Gimonnet’s wines are ultra clean, crisp and fresh. Vibrant wines imbued with tremendous energy. They are all 100% Chardonnay, Blanc des Blancs, and only see stainless steel to allow their mineral purity to shine. They are stunning, whether savoured in isolation or paired with anything from seafood – ceviche or sashimi would be perfect – to cheese or even creamy pasta dishes.

Geoffroy on the other hand is a Pinot dominant house. These are forward, voluptuous wines – one cuvée is actually aptly named volupté – which are at once poised and generous. The pretty purity of Pinot fruit is deeply alluring and, whilst delicious on their own, they scream out for daring pairings. Duck breast cooked pink, risottos and even barbecued meats will marry perfectly with Geoffroy’s style.

What is most remarkable is the clear delivery of each estate’s vision by the head of their respective families. Both Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy and Didier Gimonnet brim with unbridled knowledge and passion. They are intricately involved in every aspect of production from vineyard to winery, quite remarkable dedication and expertise that few can match. For the truly authentic taste of Champagne, look no further.

50% pinot meunier, 40% pinot noir, 10% chardonnay from Cumières, this is the classic non-vintage expression of Geoffroy’s house style.   The rich fig and red apple fruits create a compelling contrast with crisp acidity and tight grapefruit and lemon notes.  Three years on lees makes for generous maturity, reinforcing honey and fruit cake spice and a deliciously creamy texture.  Wonderful,...

Beautifully pure, floral nose. On the palate a racy, energetic feel with nuances of stone fruit, acacia, brioche and underlying minerality. Lovely purity and vitality run like a vein through the wine, which has a long, crisp, slightly nutty finish. Exemplary Blanc de Blancs and great apéritif style.

Deliciously precise with high toned citrus fruit providing thrilling...

TASTING NOTES

If the wines of Gimonnet weren’t already food friendly enough this cuvée is bottled at slightly lower pressure. This results in a sensuous, creamy mousse that combines in joyous harmony with the crystalline fruit and subtly rich vintage character. Pure elegance and charm are on show here.
