Description

Details of wine

This Champagne bears the hallmark of Pinot Noir. It aims to offer the best expression of Pinot Noir from different lots of the Terroir every year. Its complexity due to the calcareous clay soil reveals an elegance that characterizes the great Terroirs. It comes from an agriculture that follows biological dictates in respect of nature and the environment. The method used is the classic Champenoise method with a stop on the lees for at least 60 months. Straw yellow color, fine perlage and a bouquet of aromas ranging from dried fruit to spicy hints. Fresh and fruity taste with a minerality that makes itself felt. Excellent with fish dishes and for a dinner with friends.

The roots of the Geoffroy family date back to the 17th century. Cumièeres, a village in the heart of the Vallée de la Marne is where this line of winemakers is rooted. The few acres of vineyards that our ancestors cultivated and handed down from generation to generation provide the link to our champagnes. At the beginning of the 1950s Roger Geoffroy and his wife Julienne decided to take the plunge into winemaking and produced their first bottles: the Roger Geoffroy brand was born. René Geoffroy, their son, who loved the land, soon succeeded his father, who died suddenly and too young. An owner-grower to his soul, he acquired new vines, and with the help of his wife Bernadette, they developed and promoted their brand. At the end of the 1980s. Jean-Baptiste joined the family estate. After completing his education at viticultural school, he perfected his craft working side by side with his father and his father's cousin Pierrot. In 2008, Jean-Baptiste and his wife Karine decided to relocate both the winemaking and commercial operations of Champagne Geoffoy business to Ay, to a property built in the late 19th century.
