Lot #490. Geoffroy Les Houtrants Complantés Brut Nature NV

Description: Consists of 2 Bottles, 0.75L
Score: 96 AG.
"The NV Brut Nature Les Houtrants Complantés is phenomenal. What a wine. Rich, deep and explosive, the Houtrants possesses tremendous depth and energy from start to finish. Orange peel, dried flowers, ginger, mint and baked apple tart all race across the palate. This large-scaled ample Champagne is endowed with tremendous character. This is one of the best wines I have ever tasted from Geoffroy .... Jean-Baptiste Geoffroy’s Champagnes are marked by extraordinary precision and purity. Sustainable farming practices and a low-intervention approach in the cellar are core philosophies. Most vineyards are located in and around Cumières, a sector known for producing Champagnes packed with nervy energy. The decision to block malolactic fermentations and low dosage further add to that vibrancy. These are very special Champagnes that richly deserve a wider audience." Antonio Galloni, Vinous.com, Nov 2022
Lot Location: Orange County
Estimate: $450
