A unique Champagne from a “saignée” of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

- +

One of the few Champagne obtained after maceration of Pinot Noir grapes only. It is an art that Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy and all members of his Family Champagne winemakers excel.

A wonderful alchemy for this wine boldly elaborated by “saignée” after maceration of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes and created by the Champagne master Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy.

After a few hours of maceration of the red and white Pinot Noir and Chardonnay berries, the grape juice turns pink and it is at this stage that the Champagne master decides to stop the process. Quite an art! Almost handcrafted… Available in small quantity, around 2.000 bottles.

The colour is a very pale pink.

Fine touches of red berries aromas on nose, expertly combined with citruses notes like Corsica mandarine, Florida pink grapefruit and a zest of Menton lemon.

The taste is a reflect of the nose’s aromas with a remarkable fresh finish.

A great opportunity to help your friends discover this champagne as an aperitif, or with smoked carpaccio fishes like salmon or Auvergne trout, or even with a Bluefin tuna sashimi.

The René Geoffroy House, whose roots in Cumière in the Champagne region date back to the 17th century, at the beginning of the 1600s. It is located in the heart of the famous village of Aÿ, who gave its name to its wines, that later became “Champagne” at the end of the 19th century.

Since then, the vineyard has been perpetuated from generation to generation, by transmitting the lands and invaluable knowledge. This House is completely family-owned and only sells champagne from its vineyards whose surface area amounts to 14 hectares, located on the great hillsides of Cumières and Hautvillers for the main part.

The grape varieties are 42% Pinot Noir, 39% Pinot Meunier and 19% Chardonnay, thus allowing for a wide range of possible blends between the wines composed of those three Champagne varieties. The most ancient plot was planted in 1926, almost 100 years ago, and the vine are on average 20 years old.

The soils are either chalky for Chardonnay, or clay-limestone for Pinot Meunier, and siliceous clay for Pinot Noir.

The wine is matured in part in oak barrels then aged in bottle in the House’s deep cellars (15 metres). Production amounts to 120.000 bottles every year.
