Keep an eye on this husband/wife team, Patrick and Valerie Renaux. They are proving to be the serious power couple of Champagne. They do have the goods, that is, excellent expositions in the Grand Cru Ambonnay. Recall Ambonnay is the source of Krug's Clos d'Ambonnay, a small vineyard of less than two acres planted only to Pinot Noir that is the most expensive wine Krug offers. Team Renaux illustrate the richness and complexity of Ambonnay Pinot Noir with limited oak elevage. Trouble is, total production at Soutiran is less than 6,000 cases annually. I am very excited to introduce these Grand Cru beauties.


All grand cru grapes from Ambonnay on the eastern flank of the Montagne de Reims, this Champagne is impressively rich and beautifully balanced. The freshness of the white-fruit flavors is tempered by the softening effects of toastiness to give a great wine that is ready to drink.

The new release of Soutiran's NV Grand Cru Collection Privée, based on the 2013 vintage, was disgorged in October 2019 with 5.9 grams per liter dosage. Bursting with expressive aromas of dried white flowers, honeycomb, tangerine, pear and walnuts, it's medium to full-bodied, fleshy and vinous, with a rich core of fruit, racy acids and a pinpoint mousse. This is a generous, expressive Champagne that's vinified in oak barrels.
