Cumières ir viens no Šampaņas Marnes ielejas premier cru jeb pirmās raudzes ciemiem, kurā saimnieko neviens vien izcils Šampaņas zemnieks. Cumières karaļa tituls tomēr visvairāk piestāv Žanam-Batistam Žofruā (Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy), kurš ir viens no spilgtākajiem ne tikai Cumières, bet visas Šampaņas zemnieku kustības pārstāvjiem. Savus izcilos šampaniešus Champagne Geoffroy, no kuriem Empreinte 2012 izpelnījās zelta medaļu Gada vīns 2019 konkursā, viņš brūvē no nieka 14 hektāriem vīnogulāju. 


Esam pagodināti karali Žofruā pirmoreiz uzņemt Baltijas valstīs un esam gatavi noņemt provi viņa pagraba labumiem! Pievienosieties?

 

Ko par Champagne Geoffroy saka kritiķi?

 

«While this prominent grower estate has recently moved to the village of Aÿ, the Geoffroy name is inextricably linked to that of Cumières, where the family has winegrowing roots that date back to the 17th century. Today Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy and his father René farm 14 hectares of vines, 11 of which are in Cumières. A few parcels are located just across the border to the west in the adjacent village of Damery, while the rest is all meunier in the nearby village of Fleury-la-Rivière. Geoffroy’s vines average about 20 years of age, and the oldest are from 1926. Viticulture is described as lutte intégrée, or “integrated pest control”—it is heavily aimed at sustainability, eschewing all chemical weedkillers and employing methods such as the planting of cover crops, tilling of the soil and the encouraged habitation of predatory insects to combat vine pests.» - Peter Liem, Champagneguide.net

 

«The Geoffroy family have been winemakers since the seventeenth century and the property has stayed in the family for almost 400 years, uninterrupted. In addition to prime parcels in Cumières, the family has holdings in Damery, Hautvillers, and Dizy. They aim for the highest possible quality and ferment the wines in oak barrels for their Cuvée Empreinte and Cuvée Volupté. The wines don’t go through malolactic fermentation, which gives them the nerve and aging potential that most Cumières Champagnes lack. When you talk to the well-educated young Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy, you understand that this is a family that cares passionately about wine.» - Richard Juhlin, 4000 Champagnes
