Soutiran, Signature Brut 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.
40% Pinot noir Grand cru and 60% Chardonnay Grand cru
'The NV Brut Grand Cru Signature is an assemblage of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, currently based on the 2007 vintage and 30% of reserve wines of 2006 and 2005. The wine was kept on the lees for 60 months for the second fermentation and was disgorged in October 2014. Rich, ripe and intense on the nose, this full-bodied, elegant and expressive terroir-driven champagne has a good length and is recommended by the domaine to be drunk in the next two years. However, I think it can age much longer.' – Wine Advocate, 90/100
'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 a chalky minerality that brings up saline undertones.' – Winemaker
Aging on lees 6 years
Principal harvest 2011
