"Renowned for his long-lived Cumières rouge Coteaux Champenois, it’s no surprise that Geoffroy’s Rosé de Saignée also improves with time.

Now released with sufficient age for the vintage to be declared (on the back label) post-disgorgement, this is a style of medium, vibrant crimson salmon–hue and exuberant primary freshness of pink pepper, pomegranate, red cherry and tangy raspberry fruits.

Beautifully ripe fruit expression is intricately supported and freshened by ripe, brightly poised malic acidity, fine, skilfully handled tannins, exactingly balanced dosage, and the salty chalk mineral expression of Cumières." Tyson Stelzer

One of the more interesting producers of champagne, Geoffroy makes champagnes worth talking about. Taking over the reins of this father Rene, Jean-Baptiste is a talented and passionate wine producer and his fanatical efforts in the vineyard followed by careful craftsmanship in the cellar have made him one of the most revered winemakers in the region.

Geoffroy is located in the grand cru region of Aÿ but the vineyards are located in Cumières which is where the vineyard was located up until recently. Red fruit rules here in wine making style which is as close to biodynamic as possible within committing to the rigours of certification. Champagnes that reflect a sense of place with real character and personality are what Geoffroy is known for. We love this producer.

For a champagne like this, we recommend going for a rare steak and steamed green beans.
