René-Geoffroy Expression Brut
|Region||France, Champagne, Ay|
This wine gets better every year. There are lovely aromas; it's silky and stylish now – even starched. It's lighter on its feet than ever.
Geoffroy's NV Brut Premier Cru Expression is totally alive in the glass. Vibrant and delineated, the Expression bursts from glass with dried pears, flowers, almonds and Chamomile. A blend of 47% Pinot Meunier, 40% Pinot Noir and 13% Chardonnay, the Expression is all about texture and volume from the red grapes, which give tons of richness without detracting from the wine's essential energy, tension and pure drive. A crystalline, layered finish rounds things out beautifully. This is a great showing from a wine loaded with class. Disgorgement date: April 2012. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
Lots of apple and brioche aromas and flavors. Full body. Creamy and layered. Very fruity and crafted. Decadent and flavorful in the end. Drink now.
