Champagne ‘Cuvee Volupte’, Geoffroy
The grapes for the 2007 came from Premier Cru sites in Cumieres.
cépage 80% Chardonnay, 10% Pinot Noir, 10% Pinot Meunier
élevage 46% in used barrique from Pierre Yves Colin Morey in Burgundy
sur latte 60 months
Vallee de la Marne
80% CH and 10% each PN/Meunier (a first for this wine), 45% in wood; new deg 10/2014, and starting to taste no-longerinfantile, plus showing what 2007 can evolve into; this is mizuna in the form of Champagne, a ferrous green snappiness, leading to a nettle-y finish. Unusual for this wine, but compelling.
