Champagne Rene Geoffroy Description

Approximately 50% of this wine each year comes from a perpetual cuvée started by Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy’s father, René in 1970. This makes it the oldest and most complex blend of vintages in any non-vintage wine we work with. For the base of Expression, half of the total perpetual cuvée is drawn off from two large concrete vats and replaced with the current harvests’ wine. Small amounts of wine from every vintage stretching from the year the Beatles broke up, through the last harvest is in these vats – this is a 50 year old reserve. When you taste this wine, think about the history in the glass and how rare it is to have a non-vintage wine this complex and layered.

Wine Advocate: 91 Points

Based on the 2019 vintage and disgorged in January 2023 with four grams per liter dosage, Geoffroy's emblematic NV Brut Expression bursts with aromas of peach, white flowers, buttery pastry, verbena and beeswax. Medium to full-bodied, ample and pillowy, it's lively and long, concluding with chalky grip. This attractive introduction to the range always sees a minimum of three years sur lattes.

Vinous: 89 Points

The NV Brut Expression is an attractive entry-level offering. Dried pear, chamomile, crushed herbs and spice are all nicely laced together. The Meunier is driving the style and feel of the wine this year. The Expression could benefit from a bit more depth through the middle and into the finish, but it is nicely done just the same. This release is a blend of equal parts 2017 and a perpetual reserve.

Dosage is 5 grams per liter.
