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, easy drinking freshness. 


Edwina Watson, Buyer at Armit Wines


Ripe pear and a hint of nuttiness reveal a Non-Vintage which combines finesse and serious flavours with considerable aplomb. A perfect proponent of the Geoffroy house style this will leave you keen to explore the rest of the range!

Reviews & Scores

The NV Brut Expression is a very pretty and expressive wine. The interplay of bright aromatics from the Chardonnay and textural weight from the red grapes offers quite a bit of complexity and overall nuance. Creamy and expressive, the Expression turns a bit more focused into the finish. All the elements are nicely balanced.
Antonio Galloni

Bright and elegant, this well-knit, aperitif-style Champagne offers lively acidity and a fine bead, with floral overtones and a focused palate of poached pear, chalk, candied kumquat and passion fruit. Saline-tinged finish. Disgorged January 2014. Drink now through 2020. 270 cases imported.

TASTING NOTES

The nose of this Champagne is a spring bouquet: rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry, combine perfectly to offer the taster aromas, which would be unexpected in a normal rosé Champagne. The mouth follows on from the nose, with the structure of the Pinot Noir leaving at a convincing vinosity at the finish. By virtue of its freshness, this...

TASTING NOTES

From one of the very finest vintages of the past three decades this is already oozing with class and sensuous appeal. It is marvellously complex with ripe aromas of ripe orchard fruit and zesty citrus. The palate just continues the seduction with an array of flavours that reminds you why Champagne is one of the noblest wines of all.

TASTING NOTES

This crunchy, elegant Champagne is the ultimate expression of Geoffroy's prized Pinot. It wears its elegance with modesty, displaying a delicate golden delicious perfume combined with a superb lifted crunch. It is long and extremely textural but stand beautifully on its own as an aperitif. Armit Wines
