Expression, Champagne Geoffroy, Brut, Premier Cru, Cumières, Champagne AC, France, 2011 + 2012, 12.5% abv, C$80

Something extremely exciting happened to us about a month ago when our family welcomed a brand new baby granddaughter to the clan.

To welcome this adorable nymph to the world, we opened a bottle of Geoffroy ‘Expression’ champagne.  We selected this grower champagne precisely because we’d actually visited this house on bottling day in 2014.  So, sharing our story of the visit and a bottle of it with our family brought us great joy.

The Expression is Geoffroy’s premier cuvée and is made from wine taken from two years (2011 and 2012) and three types of grapes – 50% Pinot Meunier, 40% Pinot Noir, and 10% Chardonnay.

Pale lemon on the eyes with aromas of lemon, Granny Smith apple and fresh yeast. The palate has high acidity, a feathery and long lasting mousse, and flavours of applesauce and sharp lemon zest with custard.

Tasting with Rene Geoffroy in July 2014

Fresh and delicious, this champagne is WSET Very Good, and perfect for toasting new babies.
