Blanc de Rose, Rene Geoffroy
‘Blanc de Rose’ is unique in Champagne, as it is a co-maceration of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir from Damery and Cumieres.
Vallee de la Marne
All 2012, and as before it’s 50-50 PN/CH co-macerated, and in this vintage it starts to justify its price. Smells like those novella cucina strawberry-risotti you might remember, fruity-starchy. This is the first time I’ve groked his aim for this; it’s a rare kind of fruit-flower amalgam that recalls, actually, Cristal Rosé, though this is riotously more berried. Deg 2/2016.
