Andre Clouet is among the greatest of the small artisan Champagne houses. Located in the village of Bouzy, regarded as Champagne's finest Pinot Noir producing village along with neighboring Ambonnay. Clouet specializes in Pinot Noir where all 20 acres are classified Grand Cru. Proprietor Jean-Francois Clouet, grower/producer, is fashioning exciting, bold, terroir-driven, food-friendly Champagnes. With so much focus on Chardonnay-based Champagne, the textures of Pinot Noir Champagne are a much different expression, both texturally and aromatically; sensual.
