Appellation: 3.5 hectares
Grower: Remi Georgeton
The Georgeton-Rafflin domaine consists of 3.5 hectares. The majority of the vineyards are 1er Cru within the villages of Ludes, Chigny-Les-Roses, and Rilly-la-Montagne. They also have a few small parcels of Grand Cru in the village of Verzy. The vineyards are predominantly Pinot Noir with a complement of Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. The domaine has been certified HVE3 since 2014 and certified organic and biodynamic since 2021. Remi Georgeton returned to the family domain in 2006 after his education and some apprenticeships. His passion and quiet persistence is evident in the brilliance of his recent cuvées.
The base wine for this cuvée comes from parcels in three 1er Cru villages. The blend is 33% Pinot Noir, 33% Pinot Meunier, and 34% Chardonnay. The base wine vintage is blended with 33% of reserve wine from a “perpetual reserve” tank begun in 2006. The alcoholic and malo-lactic fermentations are made either in tank or in wood and the “assemblage” is bottled the following spring. The champagne then rests “sur lattes” between 36 and 60 months before being disgorged. The dosage is 2.5g.
