Champagne Soutiran is a family owned domaine based in the Grand Cru village of Ambonnay. Patrick and Valerie Renaux, who represent the domaine’s third generation, cultivate 6 hectares of vineyards dedicated to Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. In Ambonnay, the chalk laden soils of the region are complemented by a higher degree of siliceous clay, which result in Champagnes that are often equipped with a more formidable structure than wines from other Grand Cru sites.
In addition to their Grand Cru vineyards, the Renaux’s also purchase grapes from neighbor growers in Premier and Grand Cru holdings within the Montagne de Reims. Total production at this family owned domaine top out at 120,000 bottles / 10,000 cases.
