Champagne Geoffroy Millésime Extra Brut 2005

The Champagne Geoffroy Millésime Extra Brut vintage cuvée is the flagship wine of the House which is only made in exceptional years and always in small quantities. The philosophy behind this Champagne is for it to reflect the quintessence of the vintage, when the grapes are blended. Each Millésime Extra Brut will therefore be different from the last.

The 2005 vintage Millésime Extra Brut is a blend of Chardonnay (53%), Pinot Noir (30%) and Pinot Meunier (17%). The complex nose displays aromas of red and blackcurrant, cherry, mixed with a delicate oak and underpinned by vanilla, cinnamon and pear. The palate is pure and of rare density, punctuated by a savoury minerality. The Chardonnay reveals 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.
