Rene Geoffroy, Champagne, Premier Cru, Terre Extra Brut 2008
Disgorgement: May 2021
70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
The complex nose lets aromas of red and blackcurrant and cherry burst out, mixed with a delicate and sensual oakiness and underpinned by vanilla, cinnamon and pear. Attractive scents of citrus (lemon, mandarin), peach and roasted apricot close this superb olfactory experience. The attack on the palate is pure and of rare density, punctuated by a savoury minerality. It is then the turn of the Chardonnay to reveal its palette of buttery brioche and toast notes, which slip over into coffee and chocolate. Its smooth and creamy effervescence turn this Champagne into a great wine.
