A blend of 69 percent chardonnay and 31 percent pinot noir, this is the last version of Volupté to include pinot noir, and from 2010 on Geoffroy has turned this cuvée into a Cumières blanc de blancs.
It’s an outstanding wine, combining a rich depth of ripe fruit with a vibrantly chalky minerality, and feeling remarkably exuberant and energetic.
The texture is particularly silky and fine, which seems to be a hallmark of Geoffroy’s recent releases, and the finish is fragrant, subtle and long. Peter Liem
