I had the opportunity to visit with the Renoir family ….. and tasted father and son’s bubblies (very impressed!)
Vincent and Adrien Renoir organically cultivate a mere 6 hectares of Grand Cru vineyards, in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, the house of Champagne Renoir has been growing vines and making wines for 4 generations. Independent vine growers for many years, have always guaranteed quality to their customers. The vines are located in the village of Verzy, one of 17 Grands Crus in the Champagne area. Vincent and Adrien grow their vines with care and passion, from pruning to grape harvesting and then picking their grapes by hand and pressing them at the property. The wines then rest in the cellars for several years. A lengthy aging process in the cellars give their champagnes their specific features.

“Extra Brut’ Champagne. A lot of apples and pears while maintaining a good level of dryness. Clean and fresh. Slightly reductive, long-lasting finish and good body, very enjoyable Champagne. The wine is a blend of 50% Chardonnay and 50% Pinot Noir.
Robert Parker 95 Points: "Disgorged in May 2019 with 2.5 grams per liter dosage, Renoir's NV Extra-Brut Grand Cru Le Terroir is a 50-50 blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay from the slopes of Verzy, some 20% of which was vinified and matured in barrel. Unwinding in the glass with a lovely bouquet of Meyer lemon, pastry cream, yellow pear, dried white flowers, and shortbread, it's full-bodied, powerful, and vinous, with a textural attack that segues into a deep and incisive mid-palate, complemented by an elegant pinpoint mousse. Long and penetrating, this is a beautifully balanced Champagne from this promising emerging talent”
