Such depth!

André Clouet Cuvee 1911

Fermented in Sauternes barrels, this baby has an extra dimension of pleasure woven in!

100% pinot noir from Clouet’s 10 best plots, dubbed by Jean-Francois ‘the golden square of Bouzy’, 50% 2006 fermented in Sauternes barriques from Doisy-Daëne, 50% solera of reserve wines; full malolactic fermentation, a symbolic production of just 1911 bottles. All this combined with a slightly lower pressure gives the wine a lucious mouthfeel. It just draws you in!

Why is this Wine so Yummy?

Having worked in Champagne, seen behind the closed doors I know a fair few of the tricks of the trade. It’s refreshing when you come across someone like Jean-Francois Clouet who will openly discuss the tricks and is willing to stand by his wines. I explore the exceptional and ugly in the Wine Bites Mag article “Vintage 1998 Champagne Devaux, Bur-sur-Seine and Les Gras et Haas, Chouilly in the Côte des Blancs”

It’s fair to say Jean-Francois Clouet was born in a bath of Pinot, suckled on Blanc de Noir, and, grew up pour it on his corn flakes! His family was making wine a decade before Möet et Chandon’s Dom Perignon. Not long ago Bollinger rang to “enquire” read complain about Clouet’s labels ripping off their designs. After a quick look it turned out to be the other way around by decades!

Where in Champagne are Clouet’s Vineyards

Based in Bouzy with vineyards in both Bouzy and Ambonnay. The villages rest to the south of Reims and north of Épernay. Clouet is a Pinot master! Bouzy is home to many of the best Pinot growing sites in Champagne.
