NV Champagne Geoffroy, Pureté, Brut Nature
ORIGIN: Champagne, France
GRAPE: Meunier 50%, Pinot Noir 40% e Chardonnay 10%
The origins of the Geoffroy family can be traced back to the 17th century: a generation of vignerons in Cumières, classifies as Premier Cru, in the heart of Vallée de la Marne. The brand Geoffroy was light only in the 50s, thanks to Roger Geoffroy and his wife Julienne. Today their son manages the company: Jean-Baptiste, considered one of the most cultivated vignerons in the Champagne region. In 2008 Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy and his wife Karine moved the cave from Cumières to Aÿ and they bought old pressing tools Coquart to ensure a softer pressing. The cave only welcomes local yeasts in a process of restyling, which leads to a low dosage and a larger range of Cuvées - able to represent the 45 different parcels. They are all vinified separately and make up to 14 hectares of Pinot Noir and Meunier (40-40%) and Chardonnay (20%). Tha majority of the vineyards are still located in Cumières, where harvest starts and ends before the rest of the Champagne region.
The Champagne Pureté by René Geoffroy is a perfect copy of his sans année but with a prolonged refinement on its yeasts. No dosagefor this Champagne to better exalt its features: freshness, mineral content and fruit.
