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 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.
Signature is a vintage cuvée produced from parcels in the Grand Cru village of Verzy, a village considered by the champagne authority, Richard Juhlin (and many) to be among the best in Champagne. The wine is 100% Pinot Noir. The alcoholic and malo-lactic fermentations are made either in tank or in wood and the wine is bottled the following spring. The champagne then rests “sur lattes” for a minimum of 60 months before being disgorged. The dosage is 3g.
A 'perfect' September saved the 2014 vintage in Champagne, undoing the very wet August with warm drying winds. This stopped any rot developing and allowed 'optimum ripeness' to be reached.
