An expertise Champagne originating from 5 different grape varieties.

- +

This Champagne is a blend of the five grape varieties allowed in the Champagne region : Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Arbane, and Petit Meslier, originating from the Cumières vineyard, classified Premier Cru. The vineyard is planted with those 5 varieties (a difficult technique that consists of replacing the aged or dead vine plants).

The blend involves not only the grape varieties, but also the harvest years used, which are three years. The number of bottle is very low : about 1.000 bottles.

The colour is a bright gold.

The nose is very complex, every variety bringing its complexity : red berries with Pinot Noir, flowers with Chardonnay, acacia and white truffle with Arbane, and candied apple with Petit Meslier are the main distinguished fragrances in this exceptional Champagne.

The taste is very fine but powerful and stays on a creamy build.

It is a Champagne of aperitif, with foie gras or salmon canapés.

To be served around 12°C.

To be kept in cellar for 3 to 4 years, bottle laid flat, away from light and noise. A great potential of ageing.

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.
