Tasting Notes

Light yellow-gold. Ripe peach and poached pear on the deeply perfumed nose, with complicating notes of iodine, truffle and musky flowers. Smells a lot like a Chassagne. Round, chewy and expansive, offering intense orchard fruit flavors and bracing notes of lemon pith and smoky minerals. Plays richness off vivacity and finishes with outstanding clarity and mineral-driven persistence.
Presented in a special gift box.

Reviews & Scores

This has a very nicely handled oak influence adding spices and woody notes, and there's also an array of autolysis-derived grilled darker nuts, all of which combines with lemon rind and sorbet. The palate has seamless texture, fleshy elements that still show finesse and a late flurry of warmer toasty flavors. A Champagne that's balanced beautifully with super smooth phenolics. Drink now. This vintage is made from 53% chardonnay, 30% pinot noir and 17% pinot meunier.

TASTING NOTES

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,...
