“The Signature Grand Cru reflects the true identity of the house. Its distinct aromatic structure is combined with the minterality of a great terroir.”
The nose combines aromas of stewed pears and vine peaches, with a touch of torrefaction and aniseed.
The effervescence is creamy and smooth to the palate. Red and yellow fruit aromas blend with chalky minerality that brings up saline understones.
Champagne 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 8 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. Total production at this family owned domaine tops out at 70,000 bottles
