Professional Wine Reviews for Geoffroy Champagne Rose De Saignee Brut NV

Rated 94 by Wine Advocate
Disgorged in February 2017, the latest release of the NV Rosé de Saignée Blanc de Rose Extra Brut is the best that I've tasted, unfurling in the glass with a beautifully Burgundian nose of smoky red berry fruit, blood orange and peonies. On the palate, it's full-bodied, broad and vinous, with a deep core of expressive fruit, filigreed phenolic structure, a youthfully frothy mousse, ripe but racy acids and a sapid, delicately chalky finish. As usual, it's a 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, macerated together.

Winery Geoffroy

Region: Champagne

The beautiful rolling hillsides of the Champagne region of France have, for hundreds of years, been producing many of the world's most famous wines. The sparkling white wines to come out of Champagne's prestigious wineries have conquered the world, and are drank in celebration across the globe. The vast majority of the region is under vine, and grows predominantly Chardonnay and Pinot Noir grape varietals, which are usually blended together by master wine-makers in order to make their recognizable and widely loved produce. The north-easterly region of Champagne has a relatively cool climate, and quite a lot of rainfall, making it far from ideal for ripening grapes. However, the presence of heavily forested areas in the region helps maintain a balanced temperature, and the generations of expertise the wineries hold clearly produces excellent results in spite of the climatic problems.

Country: France

Year in, year out, France enjoys its prestigious reputation as the producer of the finest wines in the world. With a wine making history which spans several thousand years and owes its expertise to the Romans, it comes as little surprise that this most highly esteemed of the Old World wine countries continues to impress and enchant both novices and experts to this day. Despite the rise in quality of wines from neighboring European countries, not to mention the New World, the French wine industry continues to boom, with up to eight billion bottles being produced in recent years. However, France prides itself on always putting quality before quantity, and the wide range in fine produce is a testament to the dedication and knowledge of the wineries across the country. Indeed, from rich and complex reds to light and aromatic white wines, French wines are as varied and interesting as they are enjoyable to drink, making this country a firm favorite for wine lovers across the globe.
