"This has a very nicely handled oak influence adding spices and woody notes, and there's also an array of autolysis-derived grilled darker nuts, all of which combines with lemon rind and sorbet. The palate has seamless texture, fleshy elements that still show finesse and a late flurry of warmer toasty flavors. A Champagne that's balanced beautifully with super smooth phenolics."
96 points - James Suckling, Oct 2016
"Light yellow-gold. Ripe peach and poached pear on the deeply perfumed nose, with complicating notes of iodine, truffle and musky flowers. Smells a lot like a Chassagne. Round, chewy and expansive, offering intense orchard fruit flavors and bracing notes of lemon pith and smoky minerals. Plays richness off vivacity and finishes with outstanding clarity and mineral-driven persistence." - Josh Raynolds, Vinous Media, Dec 2014

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.
