Pinot Noir from Bouzy, Champagne, France

B-21 Top Recommendation

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.

The NV Un jour de 1911... is another 100% Bouzy Pinot Noir with an ancient label design. The shining golden-colored cuvée combines ripeness, complexity and finesse with intensity and elegance on both the nose and palate. It's a powerful and rich yet very fine and balanced Champagne with great freshness and complex length. It is juicy and intense but also highly delicate, and its mineral tension and persistent finish make it a first-class wine for elaborate dishes. A great Champagne, with a label that doesn't give any more detailed information regarding vintages or disgorgement date, but we know it's always a 50/50 blend of three vintages (including one great millésime at least 10 years old) and reserve wines from a solera system. I tasted the wine as a Brut with Clouet's German importer in Bremen. You shouldn't drink it too early, as it would be a waste of its talents.
