Grape: Pinot Noir
Andre Clouet is based in Bouzy, a village where the Pinot Noir is highly regarded as producing superb and pedigreed Champagnes. The Clouet family were the official printers to Louis XV’s Royal Court, and that attention to filagreed printing is still evident in the work of the current generation. Jean-Francois Clouet takes great pride in his family lineage. He lives in the house his ancestors built in 1741, with the wines cellared below. The domaine is comprised of 20 acres of Grand Cru vineyards in the middle slopes of the villages of Ambonnay and Bouzy.
This Champagne offers layers of mineral-infused red fruits on a silky, mid-weight frame, with gorgeous length and a refined, subtle mousse. An elegant wine with excellent balance and complexity.
