Champagne Geoffroy Volupté Brut 1er Cru 2008

The aim of Champagne Geoffroy with the Volupté Brut 1er Cru is each year provide the most beautiful expression of Chardonnay grown on the soil of Cumières. To preserve the unique character of the Chardonnay grape, this Champagne is blended differently every year.

For 2008 the blend was Chardonnay (58%) and Pinot Noir (42%). The nose offers exotic fruits (pineapple, lychee, grapefruit) blended with a delicate minerality to bring real purity. A refined and silky palate reveals a remarkable backbone punctuated by delicate aromas of brioche and fresh butter.
