Soutiran, Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru 750ml NVFrance, Champagne
The first Soutiran Champagne was bottled in 1950 by Gérard Soutiran. Since then, Soutiran sets themselves apart by focusing on terroir and artisanal know-how rather than giving in to the standardization of taste dictated by mass production. At the heart of the Soutiran philosophy is an insistence on craftsmanship and allowing their Champagnes sufficient time to mature and develop in the bottle.
100% Chardonnay Grand cru
'Soutiran's NV Brut Grand Cru Blanc de Blancs bursts from the glass with a gently oxidative bouquet of walnut oil, confit lemons, yellow apples and white peach. On the palate, the wine is broad, full-bodied and complex, with a deep, concentrated core, ripe acids and a long, nutty finish. Powerful and complex, readers who appreciate the style will adore it. It was disgorged in April 2017 with 6.2 grams per liter dosage and is based on the sunny 2006 vintage.' – William Kelley, Wine Advocate, 92/100
'Chardonnay grown on land traditionally used for Pinot Noir gives a particularly rich and textured wine. This has ripe apple and pear fruit flavors that are lifted by the fresh lime juice and a light textured character. The wine is full, ripe and ready to drink.' – Roger Coss, Wine Enthusiast, 91/100
'The cuvée Blanc de Blancs Grand cru arbours a pleasing Chardonnay profile with fresh and maritime nuances, acquired through its exceptional terroir.' – Winemaker
