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 Cuvée 1911 emerges from the glass with the most haunting of perfumes. Sweet rose petal and jasmine are some of the nuances that emerge over time. Judging by the wine's freshness, this is very likely to be a recent disgorgement, but even so, the purity of the fruit and the extraordinary elegance of the mousse are hard to miss. This is an exceptional, elegant version of the 1911 that should drink beautifully for years to come. This is recent disgorgement, so the bottle I tasted needed quite a bit of air to open up. This is Lot L05, disgorged October 4th, 2010.

While showing more fruit girth than most Champagnes, this also has the austere mineral acidity to sculpt it into fine proportion and fantastic, weightless length. Its pinot flavors come through in floral apricot and juicy peach, both powerful and harmonious. For Nantucket Bay scallops or belly tuna sashimi.
