  • Winemaker Notes In the glass, a trail of fine bubbles lights up the surface. It gives off a rich and fresh visual sensation. The nose is characterised by blended notes of citrus, biscuit, dried fruit and torrefaction. In the mouth, the wine develops an ample and unctuous substance. The finale is supported by a beautiful freshness.
  • Tasting Notes "Made from 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir (both from Ambonnay; 90% 2008 and 10% 2009 vintage) and aged on the lees for 72 months, the limited NV Brut Grand Cru Collection Privée is a rich and complex selection of the best parcels and barrels (20% oak here). Pure, complex, refreshing mineral, and fruity aromas on the nose lead to a very dry and full-bodied though vibrant, firmly structured and persistent champagne with a good yet still somewhat drying length. Very expressive and provided with good aging potential. The wine was disgorged in October 2014 with a dosage of five grams per liter." - Stephan Reinhardt

  • Vineyard Guided by Alain Soutiran's daughter, Valérie Renaux-Soutiran, and her winemaking husband Patrick Renaux, Champagne Soutiran cultivates 11 hectares of vines of which six are family-owned. Most of the vines are located in Ambonnay, the rest is in Trepail, Chigny les Roses and Chamery. Pinot Noir is dominating, but there is also Chardonnay and a little bit of Pinot Meunier. Valérie and Patrick are the third generation of the family domaine that produces clear, full, intense and elegant Champagnes of really excellent quality.
