  • Winemaker Notes The colour is a rich crystalline gold. The nose opens up with notes of fig, prune and pineapple. On tasting, the wine is rich, fleshy and velvety. It is beautifully vivacious as well as vinous. It combines fruity roundness with minerality, leaving a hint of sea salt. Its taste is remarkably long and its freshness stupefying for a blanc de noirs.
  • Tasting Notes "The NV Brut Grand Cru Perle Noire is another big, dramatic wine from Soutiran. Here the fruit possesses more structure, depth and power than the Blanc de Blancs in a style that exalts the unique qualities of Pinot Noir from Ambonnay. The Perle Noir reveals wonderful complexity and terrific overall balance." - Antonio Galloni, Wine Advocate

  • 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.
