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.


Disgorged in January 2020 with 3.8 grams per liter dosage, the latest release of Soutiran's NV Brut Grand Cru Signature is based on the 2014 vintage with 66% reserve wines from 2013. Despite its recent disgorgement, it's already quite expressive, opening in the glass with notes of honeyed green orchard fruit, fresh bread and peaches. Medium to full-bodied, lively and vinous, it's more reserved on the palate, but it's beautifully balanced and displays promising depth at the core. With six months or more on cork, it should really start to sing.

91+ points, William Kelley, Wine Advocate (Issue # 248 - Apr 2020)

A blend of the 2013 and 2014 vintages plus reserve wine, this Champagne has concentration as well as intense white fruit. Its freshness comes from the mineral and structured blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Drink this bottling now.
