93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Derived from the 2013 vintage and disgorged in March 2019, the latest release of Geoffroy's NV Extra-Brut Rosé de Saignée Blanc de Rose is showing nicely, offering up scents of crisp apple, rye toast, red berries and cherries. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and precise, it's seamless and textural, with a notably elegant, fine-boned profile by the standards of this habitually vinous, broad-shouldered cuvée.

93pts James Suckling

A dense rosé Champagne with strawberry fruit and mineral undertones, as well as cooked peaches. Full-bodied with lots of fruit and a spicy finish. Minerally, too. 100% pinot noir.

92pts Wine Spectator

Packs an aromatic skein of herbes de Provence and spice box, which wind through flavors of macerated raspberry, blood orange peel, oyster shell and almond skin. A firm, well-knit rosé Champagne, lightly chalky in texture and mouthwatering through the zesty finish. Disgorged March 2022.

Winemaker Notes

The ruby red hue of this Rosé de Saignée is a pleasure for the eyes. The nose of this Champagne is a spring bouquet: rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry, combine perfectly to offer the taster aromas, which would be unexpected in a normal rosé Champagne. The mouth follows on from the nose, with the structure of the Pinot Noir leaving at a convincing vinosity at the finish. By virtue of its freshness, this Rosé de Saignée Champagne is best enjoyed young to take full advantage of the aromas of small, fresh and crisp red berries.

Winery Notes

These days, many of the grower-producers are selling all the Champagne they can make. Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy, who has 14 hectares in the Vallée de la Marne, is the fifth generation in his family to grow grapes in the region. While his family has always made a little wine, they began to emphasize Champagne production in the bad years after World War II, when they were unable to sell their grapes to the big houses. In the 1970’s Mr. Geoffroy’s father decided to keep all the grapes and turn them into Champagne. Walking through a hillside vineyard in Cumières overlooking the Marne, Mr. Geoffroy’s parcels were easy to distinguish from the others. The lush green grass growing between his rows of bare vines was evidence of his distaste for chemical pesticides and herbicides. "If you don't have passion, you won't make very good Champagne," he said as he strolled the vineyard, waving at local hunters who also walked the rows, shotguns in hand, searching for rabbits and pheasants.
