Champagne Geoffroy is one of the very rare Houses that makes its rosé Champagne by “leeching” during maceration of Pinot Noir. After a few hours in contact with the skin of the grape, the juice acquires a superb and natural colour, becoming intoxicated with subtle yet deep red fruit aromas.
SOIL: Clay and silt with some marl at depth. Average age of the vines: 25 years
Maceration with immersed cap in open oak vats. Avoidance of malolactic fermentation.
As a preamble the ruby red hue of this Rosé de saignée is a pleasure for the eyes. The nose of
this Champagne is a spring bouquet: rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry,
combine perfectly to offer the taster aromas, which would be unexpected in a normal rosé
Champagne. The mouth follows on from the nose, with the structure of the Pinot Noir leaving at
a convincing vinosity at the finish. By virtue of its freshness, this rosé de saignée Champagne is
best enjoyed young to take full advantage of the aromas of small, fresh and crisp red berries.
This Rose champagne will harmonize perfectly with noble seafood, such as pan-fried scallops or
the finesse of a lobster or crawfish. Back on land a lightly roasted duck breast with some
peaches will be perfect. A peach soup accompanied by a few strawberries with a flute of rosé
Champagne will leave the eye and the palate with an unforgettable memory.
