Champagne Geoffroy has been making their own champagne since the 1950s and is today run by third generation Jean-Baptiste, his wife Karine and their five daugthers. Since 2008 the house is situated in Aÿ, but most of their 14 hectares of vineyards are around Premier Cru village Cumières. The new multi-level winery is operated through gravity and in the cellars below, the wines rest for 3 to 8 years depending on cuvée and vintage.
Jean-Baptiste is a perfectionist, a visionnaire and a conscencious grower who avoids herbicides and pesticides, only spraying the vines when needed for essential protection. Working the soil and encouraging biodiversity is also important to his philosophy. The 35 different plots are vinified separately to enable greater blending options.
His portfolio is very varied, but as the malolactic conversion is avoided, all the champagnes have a bright acidity and precise aromas in common, as well as excellent ageing capacity. His still wines under the Coteaux Champenois appellation as well as his Ratafia are some of the best you can find.
