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.

Aged for six years on the second lees, the yellow-golden NV Brut The V6 Experience is a Bouzy Pinot Noir that displays great purity and intensity but also reduction on the mineral-scented nose. This is deep and complex, but it needs all our patience and perhaps even a decanter or at least a big glass and lots of aeration. The palate is rich and powerful, firmly structured, very tight and still astringent on the finish, but there is so much finesse paired with power, concentration and fruit, which give the V6 a promising future. The wine just starts a bit slowly (like a rocket, which is pictured on the label), but it will most probably go very steep in a couple of years. I have ever had this cuvée before, so I can only guess, though.
