Aspen Food & Wine Classic Trip (Write-Up in Progress); 6/17/2015-6/22/2015 (Aspen, Colorado): From a bottle disgorged in June of 2014, this rose-colored, nonvintage, 100% Pinot Noir offering has a small, active bead. Raspberry, orange zest and floral aromas are followed by similar flavors on a medium-bodied, crisply acidic frame. Solid in the middle and finishing medium-to-long, this is a delightful Champagne which should provide maximal pleasure over the next two years. Drink now-2017.
Lots of lovely tiny bubbles and a terrific mousse with every glass, bright bronze/red color in the glass, enticing strawberry, red cherry, and raspberry nose with hints of baked tart and wet slate, more of the same on the palate, medium body, very intense, complex flavors, tasty, medium/long finish. this is best served very chilled and let it warm up in the glass for maximum effect and taste.

(NV René Geoffroy Rosé de Saignée) ($77.00) The demand is so feverish the wine sells out just as it’s starting to really find its fruit with a year on the cork. I tasted an ’08 cuvée disgorged 12/10, with the magnificently pretty fruit of this lovely vintage. An ’09 cuvée, disgorged the first week of March, has more body and fruit but less flower; richer, more brioche-y, more mid-palate. We’ll see it in the Fall. It does bear mentioning, our most popular Geoffroy wine is also our least dry Geoffroy wine. This in-demand fella is packing a whole 10g.l. of filthy residual sugar. Thanks for not minding!
