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.

A decadent and very flavorful Champagne with bread-dough, praline, pie-crust and apple-tart aromas and flavors. Full body. Creamy and flavorful. Extremely long and delicious. Drink now.

Based on the 2014 vintage and disgorged in October 2019 with 7.5 grams per liter dosage, Soutiran's NV Brut Grand Cru Perle Noire offers aromas of pear, honeycomb, gingerbread and iodine. Full-bodied, textural and enveloping, it's vinous and fleshy, with a generous core of fruit and a fine but youthfully frothy mousse.

This blanc de noirs was fermented in wood before bottling. Produced from the 2014 harvest, the Champagne is now maturing well, showing richness as much as fruit. There is crisp texture at the end, giving a mineral aftertaste to the wine. Drink now.
