Saignée in Champagne is a bit different term than how it is used elsewhere. Essentially it refers to rosé that is made by direct skin contact as opposed to adding finished red wine to the white bubbles. Jean-Baptiste does not hold back when he makes his Saignée. This is 100% Pinot Noir that spends 2 ½ to 3 days macerating with the skins prior to being pressed and finishing fermentation.

After a long, 54 months of aging on the lees the wine is disgorged. The result is a robust, vinous and enchantingly aromatic rosé Champagne. Very enjoyable on its own, it really shines with food. And it can bridge many courses, from crudo and sushi to fried appetizers to truffled eggs and even a rare steak.

The Geoffroy family has been farming in Cumières for hundreds of years, selling grapes to the big Champagne houses, until the 1970s, when they began making and bottling their own wines. A motto of theirs is 'extraordinary wines come from extraordinary grapes', and to that end, they endeavor to work sustainably with the environment at large. Among the many premier cru parcels they own, it’s easy to distinguish Geoffroy vines from others’, because of the lush grass growing between the rows.

Professional Reviews

Robert Parker

RP 93
"Derived from the 2013 vintage and disgorged in March 2019, the latest release of Geoffroy's NV Extra-Brut Rosé de Saignée Blanc de Rose is showing nicely, offering up scents of crisp apple, rye toast, red berries and cherries. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and precise, it's seamless and textural, with a notably elegant, fine-boned profile by the standards of this habitually vinous, broad-shouldered cuvée." -Robert Parker

Wine Spectator

WS 92
"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."
