René Geoffroy

The Maison Geoffroy has its origins dating back to the early 17th century on the lands of the commune of Cumières, in the heart of the Vallée de la Marne.

Since then, the winemaking know-how has been passed down from generation to generation, and today it's Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy and his wife Karine who, accompanied by their daughters, passionately watch over their 14-hectare vineyard. They produce Champagnes "de vigneron" as we like to say, that is to say, authentic and carrying a history that can be found right down to their taste of terroir.

What is the history of Maison Geoffroy?

The Village of Cumières was the anchor point for the Geoffroy family in the 17th century. Generations followed one another, but it wasn't until the early 1950s that René Geoffroy and his wife Julienne decided to create their own Champagne, and the Geoffroy brand was born. Their son René succeeded his parents at the head of the company, acquiring new plots of vines to develop the business. His son Jean-Baptiste took over at the end of the 1980s, having graduated in viticulture and oenology. Together with his wife Karine, he took the decision to transfer the business from Maison Geoffroy to Aÿ in 2008.

Description Rene Geoffroy Les Houtrants Complantés.

A Champagne made from a blend of the 5 grape varieties authorized in the Champagne region: Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Arbane and Petit Meslier from the vineyard of Cumières classified as Premier Cru.

The vineyard is planted with these 5 varieties (a difficult technique to achieve which consists in replacing exhausted or dead vines).

The blending is not only about the grape varieties but also about the years of harvest used, which are three years. The number of bottles is very small: about 1000 bottles.

The bright gold dress.

The nose is very complex, each grape variety having brought its own complexity: red berries with the Pinot Noir, flowers with the Chardonnay, acacia and white truffle with the Arbane and candied apple with the Petit Meslier are the main fragrances discernible in this exceptional champagne.

The mouth is all in smoothness but powerful and remains on a creamy structure.

It is an aperitif champagne with foie gras or salmon canapés.

To be served around 12°C.

To be kept in the cellar for three or four years, bottle laid down away from light and noise. Good ageing potential.
