The estate of André Clouet lies in the heart of Grand Cru Pinot Noir country in the little town of Bouzy. The estate is run by Jean-François Clouet, a long-standing friend of The Vintner, whose champagnes are outstanding. Jean-Francois owns 8 hectares of vines in preferred mid-slope vineyards in the Grand Cru villages of Bouzy and Ambonnay, where he exclusively grows Pinot Noir from vines grown on Champagne’s famous chalk soil. The wine is fermented first in temperature controlled stainless steel vats for two weeks. The wine is then filtered, stabilised then bottled with yeast added to start its second fermentation in bottle.
A top quality Champagne made from 100% Pinot Noir. The result is an exotic bouquet with lots of finesse evolving through notes of citrus, honey and vanilla. Full and rich in the mouth with a reminder of the aromatic finesse.
