Exotically perfumed nose displays an array of citrus and orchard fruit aromas along with notes of vanilla anise and smoke. Lush Meyer lemon pear and honeysuckle flavors stain the palate with bitter herb and quince nuances adding cut. Leaves smoky mineral and leesy notes behind on the strikingly long sappy finish. Powerful well-balanced Champagne.

Vinification in French oak barriques gives the wine considerable depth volume and spiciness. Layers of ripe expressive varietal fruit flow from this rich dramatic Champagne. A caressing multi-dimensional finish rounds things out in style. As good as this is - and it is outstanding - I prefer Geoffroy's wines made in steel. The blend is 60% Pinot Noir 35% Chardonnay and 5% Pinot Meunier with 2 grams per liter of dosage. Disgorged March 9 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022.
