93pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

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.

Vibrant acidity frames flavors of steeped white peach, raspberry, candied orange zest and smoke in this rich, expressive rosé. Well-balanced and lively, with a mouthwatering, spiced finish.

 

The ruby red hue of this Rosé de Saignée is a pleasure for the eyes. The nose of this Champagne is a spring bouquet: rose, wild strawberry, raspberry and later blackberry, combine perfectly to offer the taster aromas, which would be unexpected in a normal rosé Champagne. The mouth follows on from the nose, with the structure of the Pinot Noir leaving at a convincing vinosity at the finish. By virtue of its freshness, this Rosé de Saignée Champagne is best enjoyed young to take full advantage of the aromas of small, fresh and crisp red berries.
