Expression Premier Cru Brut Champagne NV
Champagne Geoffroy has been one of our finds of the year. Their Expression Brut comes entirely from Premier Cru sites and displays the utter joy that Pinot Meunier can create in the right hands. Rich and creamy with an almond nuttiness, the touch of tropical fruit, dried fig, grapefruit, a lick of mint, a drizzle of honey and crunchy red apples and their blossom. This is a non-vintage Champagne that easily outperforms many of the vintage offerings from larger houses. Pour something a little unexpected next time you are celebrating.
Champagne Geoffroy’s house style is one of thrilling fruit and immense character, making the wines a joy to drink. Industry expert Richard Juhlin says that he recommends all the wines produced by Champagne Geoffroy – formerly known as Champagne René Geoffroy – and that “the grower is better than ever” – a ringing endorsement that Harvey Nichols wholeheartedly agrees with.
Based in Aÿ, Vallée de la Marne, the Geoffroy family can trace its grape-growing history in Champagne back to the 17th Century but they only started vinifying their grapes rather than selling them in the 1950s. Their approach is wonderfully old-style and eco-friendly. For example, the soil is aerated by animal-drawn plough, wild grasses spread through the vineyards promoting biodiversity, fermentation normally takes place in oak and the gravity-fed winery still uses ultra-traditional Coquard basket presses.£5.6 per 100.00ml
