Approximately 50% of this wine each year comes from a perpetual cuvée started by Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy’s father, René in 1970. This makes it the oldest and most complex blend of vintages in any non-vintage wine we work with. For the base of Expression, half of the total perpetual cuvée is drawn off from two large concrete vats and replaced with the current harvests’ wine. Small amounts of wine from every vintage stretching from the year the Beatles broke up, through the last harvest is in these vats – this is a 50 year old reserve. When you taste this wine, think about the history in the glass and how rare it is to have a non-vintage wine this complex and layered.
