Information about the Millésime Champagnes from René Geoffroy:

This vintage cuvée is the flagship of our House. And to ensure excellence, we only produce this
Champagne in exceptional years and always in small quantities. The philosophy behind this
Champagne is for it to reflect the quintessence of the vintage, when we blend the grapes. Each
Millésime Extra Brut will therefore be different from the last, so that it reflects the full breadth of
organoleptic qualities offered by mother nature.


SOIL: Clay and silt with some marl at depth for the Pinot Noir and limestone for the Chardonnay Average.
Age of the vines: 50 years
BLEND: 53% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir and 17% Pinot Meunier
DOSAGE: 4 g/l
Botttles produced: 6096

VINIFICATION :
*At harvest grapes from the oldest plots are selected, redolent of the richest characteristics that
typify the Terroir
*During pressing, only "tête de cuvee” juices (finest juices from the first pressing) are selected
*Vinification entirely in oak barrels
*Absence of malolactic fermentation, retaining all the natural acidity of the grape.
*Bottled without filtering
*Second fermentation in the bottle following ancient rules, using a cork rather than a metal capsule.
*Bottles aged in our cellar for at least 8 years (rather than the 3 years usually required)
*Bottling run limited to 6096 bottles and 367 magnums.

TASTING :
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.
The smooth and creamy effervescence turn this Champagne into a great wine .

PAIRING:
To enjoy this Champagne at its best we recommend that you decant it about 30 minutes before tasting at 12° C so that the dormant energy preserved during the long years of aging can express itself fully. Dyed-in-the-wool champagne lovers will appreciate this Vintage Champagne as an aperitif. But this great wine can be matched with unusual dishes such as a sea urchin and crab “nage” with saffron, a risotto with truffles and parmesan or a superb piece of lightly grilled beef
