André Clouet ‘Grande Réserve’ Grand Cru Brut NV Champagne
André Clouet ‘Grande Réserve’ Champagne is produced at the family-owned vineyard & winery based in Bouzy, France, selected in line with the focus of Harper & Blohm on small, artisan and farmhouse producers.
‘Release after release, year after year, I have always marvelled at the lemon blossom freshness that Clouet manages to capture in Pinot Noir from two of Champagne’s most powerful terriors. Here it is again, in a captivating interplay of fleshy mirabelle plums, white peaches, crunchy golden delicious apples, and even a hint of pepper. Wild honey and mixed spice join the maelstrom along the way, gliding obediently into a well-defined finish of soft minerality and integrated dosage’. Tyson Selzer – The Champagne Guide 2014 – 2015
A little history
‘Bouzy and Ambonnay are the epicentres of Pinot Noir in Champagne and the Clouet family is the privileged custodian of eight hectares of estate vines in the best middle slopes of both villages. These are rich and concentrated expressions of Pinot Noir, wines of deep complexity, multi-faceted interest and engaging character, yet with remarkable restraint and sense of control. Recent tastings confirm my impression that this small and relatively unknown grower ranks high among Champagne’s finest practitioners of Pinot Noir – and expresses one of the best value of all’. The Prince Wine Store
