Soutiran is a family owned domaine based in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. Patrick and Valerie Renaux, who represent the domaine’s third generation, cultivate 6 hectares of vineyards dedicated to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In Ambonnay, the chalk laden soils of the region are complemented by a higher degree of siliceous clay, which result in Champagnes that are often equipped with a more formidable structure than wines from other Grand Cru sites.
A very fine bead on this Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs from Champagne Soutiran. White flowers, citrus, and toasted biscuit nuances. Fantastic as a start to the evening, grilled scallops, Dungeness crab, or Hamachi.. 80% Temperature controlled fermentation in stainless steel tank. 20% fermentation in neutral barrel. Wine does go through malolactic fermentation. Elevate: 36 months sur lattes.
