André Clouet Grand Cru Réserve Brut, AOC ChampagneRegular price €55.00
A vibrant, luminously golden champagne, whose body and aromas blend with absolute harmony in the mouth. Velvety and sensual, deep and full-bodied, this champagne has all the virtues!
Lifted aromas of stone fruit, wheat kernel and strawberry, with a silky, mid-weight palate and a subtle, refined mousse. Crisp, elegant finish. This cuvée is a blanc de noirs—made solely from Pinot Noir grapes.
A food-friendly champagne that works wonders with creamy pastas, poultry and richer seafoods.
1. Rated ‘#1 Champagne under $50’ by the Wall Street Journal.
2. Robert Parker / Wine Advocate, 90 points - 'Offers up layers of mineral-infused red fruits on a silky, mid-weight frame, with gorgeous length and a refined, subtle mousse. This impeccable, elegant wine shows terrific overall balance as well as complexity. I loved it!'
Clouet is made by a father-and-son team whose wine is cellared beneath their pretty, vine-covered, 17th century house in the Grand Cru village of Bouzy, in the Montagne de Reims. Jean-François Clouet, winemaker, is known for his fanatical devotion to quality. Young and full of ideas, he aspires to Bollinger in style and quality.
Thanks to an ancestral land grant from Napoleon, Jean-Francois has the privilege of working with some of the best-situated vines in the Bouzy sub-region.
