Geoffroy Empreinte 2013
This Champagne bears the hallmark of the Pinot Noir from the heart of the Cumières Terroir. Geoffroy aim to offer the best expression of Pinot Noir from several different plots of the Terroir each year. This Champagne owes its complexity and its substance to the chalky clay soil and then reveals an elegance that typifies the great Terroirs.
On the nose: A complex bouquet of aromas of red fruits. Airy and bright.
On the palate: Boasting great freshness, generous notes of strawberry and redcurrant are punctuated by hints of fragrant flowers. It maintains a beautiful balance with a persistent finish.
Empreinte complements the expressive flavors of gastronomic cooking remarkably well. Bresse chicken with morel mushrooms, quail with grapes or a fricassee of forest mushrooms harmonize perfectly with Champagne Empreinte.
Varietals: 70% Pinot Noir, 30% Chardonnay
Aging: Aged in aged oak casks and barrels.
