Review:
Geoffroy's 2004 Extra Brut Millésime (magnum) is 71% Chardonnay and 29% Pinot Noir from old vines in Cumières. Ample and creamy, with an added hint of softness from vinification in oak, the 2004 is super-expressive today. Lemon confit, white flowers, spice and a touch of pastry flesh out as this racy, succulent Champagne opens in the glass. The low dosage of 4 grams per liter is not especially evident as the wine has more than enough richness to keep things in balance. Delicate and vinous, with lovely inner sweetness, the 2004 is simply impeccable. Disgorged: February, 2017.
