René Geoffroy Millésime Extra Brut Champagne Blend 2005

$115

Jean-Baptisteandnbsp;Geoffroy started making a vintage-dated champagne in 1995, and there has been very little formulaic approach to the wine, aside from making it a selection of the top wines produced from hisandnbsp;Cumiandegrave;resandnbsp;vines. The wines are always fermented in oak, usuallyandnbsp;barriqueandnbsp;or demi-muids. The 2005 is a blend of 53% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 17% Pinot Meunier, aged under cork for the secondary fermentation. This is undoubtedly one of the finest of all 2005 Champagnes, as so many were too savory and vegetal, butandnbsp;Cumiandegrave;resandnbsp;seems to have made out very well, as they were the earliest-harvested village that and most years. The wine is just beginning to show the second life of hints of honeyed flavors, but still both citrus and red fruits remain.andnbsp;andnbsp;

She's a thing of beauty! Full, round, mouthwatering deliciousness. Super complex. Melon, peach, toffee, honey. Develops beautifully when left to breathe. Aftertaste goes on forever. Only their best oldest vines are used. They only use the coeur of the cuvée. Matured on older Burgundian barrels for a year. Disgorged June 2016 53%chardonnay, 30% Pinot noir, 17% Pinot Meunier.
