Critical Acclaim: 93 pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
About the Winery: Vincent and Adrien Renoir, father and son, are Vigneron of Verzy, a village on the northern edge of the Montagne de Reims, known for its approximately 400 hectares of vineyards, classified as 100% Grand Cru. The Renoir family has been working their 5 hectares for four generations. The experience and knowledge handed down from father to son have allowed them to produce wines enriched with their personality. The organic vineyards are managed with extreme care and sensitivity to ensure the healthiest and most highly qualitative harvesting. The wines then rest in the cellars, mainly in steel, for several years. A lengthy aging process in the cellars gives their champagnes their superb style and structure.
Tasting Notes: "Disgorged in April 2021 with 1.6 grams per liter dosage, Renoir's NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru Le Terroir (2018 base) is showing very well, unfurling in the glass with aromas of nashi pear, crisp yellow orchard fruit, clear honey and freshly baked bread. Medium to full-bodied, deep and concentrated, with a layered but tightly wound core of fruit that's girdled by bright acids and animated by a pinpoint mousse, it will reward at least a year or two on cork with greater range and plenitude, and it will live for a lot longer."- Robert Parker's Wine Advocate.
Varietal: Blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.
