100% Pinot Noir
Terroir: Clay and lime, with fragments of flint.
Selection of very early-ripening plots above Cumières
Average age of the vines: 45 years
Blend of 3 or 4 years
Wine making: Harvested and rigorously sorted by hand. Maceration and winemaking in an open oak vat with immersed cap. Matured for 10 months in demi-muid casks and barrels before aging in stainless steel vats, in the cellar at a constant temperature. Malolactic fermentation in barrels; no fining, no filtering.
Tasting: Colour: brilliant, deep red. The nose is typical of the Pinot Noirs of the Terroir of Cumieres with some morello cherry (griotte) coming through. In the mouth a smooth balance is formed between red fruits and silky, delicate tannins.
Antonio Galloni Vintage 2012 – 93P: The 2012 Pinot Meunier is bold, punchy and vibrant. A rush of sweet red cherry, game, tobacco, licorice and earthy notes give this mid-weight red surprising nuance. The 2012 is remarkably fresh for a still red wine that is nearly ten years old. This nervy Cumières Pinot has so much character. I absolutely loved it.
Daniela Dejnega 2022: Coteaux Champenois Rouge at its best. Geoffroy's Pinot Noir vines in the "Les Chalmonts" site are on average 45 years old. On the clay and limestone soils above Cumières, the grapes ripen early. They are strictly selected and fermented in open wooden vats, partly with the stems. The red wine is aged in barrels, without sulfur, fining or filtration. The bouquet is elegant and red berry, sweet and sour cherries, some tobacco and autumn leaves. Very fresh on the palate, silky, ripe tannins with fine grip, red-fruited again and a hint of cocoa. Needs time in the glass!
