Cumières rouge traditionnel
The red wines produced in Champagne enjoy a reputation dating back to the early history of the region. It is really only thanks to the quality of the Terroir that we can make red wine at all in Cumières. The soils, where chalk or clay-chalk dominates in some places, flinty grindstone in others, are perfectly suited to the morello-cherry-tasting Pinots typical of Cumières.
The task of making a red wine In such a northerly location as that of our vineyard varies in difficulty from one year to the next. That is why our policy is to adjust the quantity of red we make according to the quality of the vintage. Some years we make no Cumieres Rouge at all.
It was Roger Geoffroy who first began to make this wine. Sixty years on we enjoy more proving that the Champagne region is also a great Terroir for red wine.
