This is the famous Adrien Renoir estate. Find all the most beautiful references of this prestigious estate on Comptoir des Millésimes. This is one of our partner estates, which means that their wines are shipped directly to our cellar following bottling at their estate. Each year, the Château reserves an allocation of their cases of wine for us. So don't hesitate to create an email alert on the estate so that you can be the first to be informed of the latest arrivals.
Located in Verzy, in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, Champagne Vincent Renoir has been making champagnes for 4 generations. Handed down from father to son, the house is recognised among the Independent Winegrowers. The vineyard is mainly located in the commune of Verzy, one of the 17 villages classified Grand Cru. The harvest is carried out by hand in order to follow the maturity of each parcel and to guarantee a high quality. The grapes are then pressed directly on the estate and the juice vinified in stainless steel vats. The wines are then aged in the cellar for several years before being marketed.
In 2014, Adrien joined the estate and decided to launch his own brand, Champagne Adrien Renoir. He starts experimenting with organic and biodynamic viticulture and officially launches his conversion in 2017. The stainless steel vats are now replaced by oak barrels in which fermentation takes place spontaneously using indigenous yeasts. Maturing on lees for 11 months is then carried out, with as little intervention as possible (without fining or filtration).
4 new vintages are then created:
- Blend: "le terroir", BSA chardonnay-pinot noir
- Location : " les Montants " 100% chardonnay
- Lieu-dit : " les Epinettes " 100% pinot noir
- Location : " les Vignes Goisses " 100% pinot meunier
Adrien has chosen to vinify so-called "lieux dits" and single grape varieties each year in order to reveal the different faces of the Verzy terroir to the maximum. And more are to come.
