This Champagne Perle Noire Grand Cru of the Maison SOUTIRAN is composed solely of Pinot Noir, 40% of which are reserve wines.
After 36 to 48 months in the cellar, the nose is fruity and opens up with figs, prunes and exotic pineapple.
Maison Soutiran, a 6-hectare family estate, is located in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, in the village of Ambonnay, which benefits from the prestigious "Grand Cru" distinction. The Pinot Noir and Chardonnay grapes are planted on hillsides with calcareous soils particularly rich in magnesium. This specificity of the village's terroir gives a minerality to the wines that is expressed through saline and iodine notes.
Soutiran Perle Noire Grand Cru tasting notes
The colour is a rich crystalline gold. The nose opens with notes of fig, plum and pineapple.
On the palate, the wine is rich, fleshy and velvety. It is beautifully lively and vinous. It combines fruity roundness with minerality, leaving a hint of sea salt. Its flavour is remarkably long and its freshness intoxicating for a blanc de noirs.
Full of mineral, apple and bread dough notes that combine with a full-bodied profile, this structured champagne has a long finish of dough and dried fruits.
