Tasting Notes

This has incredible energy. A brilliant champagne that delivers incredibly well for its money. A stunning bouquet of baking spices, cardamom, clove and cinnamon, nutmeg, ripe plums and herbs, impressive and unique; crystal clear attack, slow evolution over the mineral backbone, enormous resilience and length. Stellar.

"Fresh and focused, with a minerally underpinning and a creamy, well-knit mix of Gala apple, slivered almond and toast point flavors, plus hints of cherry blossoms and pink grapefruit pith. Lingering, lacy finish."

The Producer

René Geoffroy

The roots of the Geoffroy family date back to the 17th century. Cumières, 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 Geoffroy business to Ay, to a property built in the late 19thcentury.

Continuing the long family tradition, the next chapter in the family’s work will be written by their five daughters, Margaux, Sacha, Rosalie, Colombine and Azalée, the successors of the third generation. This new generation of winemakers is growing up inspired by new prospects, new ideas and precious experience.
