Rene Geoffroy Rose de Saignee Premier Cru Brut, Champagne, France NV 1.5L

Regular price $ 161.00

Disgorged in June 2019, the latest release of Geoffroy's perennial superb NV Brut Premier Cru Rosé de Saignée is derived entirely, like its predecessor, from the 2014 vintage. On the nose, this release is similar to the 2018 disgorgment, but it's even more aromatically complex, with aromas of warm bread, linden and honeycomb complementing the signature scents of red berries, orange rind and spices. On the palate, the wine is deep, full-bodied and incisive, with ripe but racy acids, a concentrated core of fruit and a precise, elegantly chalky finish; indeed, this is a bit more controlled and less boisterous than last year's edition. While the difference isn't quite enough to merit an extra point, I do prefer this new release, and it comes warmly recommended.
