Winemaker Notes

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.

Critical Acclaim

WS 92
Wine Spectator
Bright and elegant, this well-knit, aperitif-style Champagne offers lively acidity and a fine bead, with floral overtones and a focused palate of poached pear, chalk, candied kumquat and passion fruit. Disgorged January 2014. Drink now through 2020.
W&S 92
Wine & Spirits
Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy blends this wine from parcels in Cumieres and Hautvillers, including Pinot Meunier (50 perfecnt) and Pinot Noir with a small addition of Chardonnay. It's the best release of Expression we've tasted in some time, with the kind of pale white flavor of mushrooms and chalk that you might get from a dry Manzanilla, balancing freshness with the oxidative chracter of barrel-aged wines. It's earthy and tense, a powerful evocation of the Marne Valley soils.
V 92
Vinous

The NV Brut Expression is a beautiful wine. A fine line of acidity runs through the Expression, lending notable brightness and cut throughout. Orchard fruit, spice, mint and dried flowers are all beautifully delineated in a Champagne that impresses for its transparency and cut. I loved it. This release is a blend of 2015 and 2014. Dosage is 5 grams per liter. Disgorged: December, 2019. Drinking window: 2020 - 2028

JS 91
James Suckling

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.

RP 90
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Disgorged in July 2019, the latest release of Geoffroy's NV Brut Expression delivers an inviting bouquet of pear, yellow apples, fresh pastry and hints of honeycomb. Medium to full-bodied, bright and incisive, it's a chiseled, precise wine with a charming core of fruit, bright acids and a pinpoint mousse, concluding with a delicately chalky finish. It will show even better after another year or two on cork.

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.

While this prominent grower estate has recently moved to the village of Aÿ, the Geoffroy name is inextricably linked to that of Cumières, where the family has winegrowing roots that date back to the 17th century. Today Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy and his father René farm 14 hectares of vines, 11 of which are in Cumières. A few parcels are located just across the border to the west in the adjacent village of Damery, while the rest is all meunier in the nearby village of Fleury-la-Rivière.

Geoffroy’s vines average about 20 years of age, and the oldest are from 1926. Viticulture is described as lutte intégrée, or “integrated pest control”—it is heavily aimed at sustainability, eschewing all chemical weedkillers and employing methods such as the planting of cover crops, tilling of the soil and the encouraged habitation of predatory insects to combat vine pests.
