Andre Clouet Silver Nature Brut NV
SPECIAL BUY 6 OR MORE … Fine Grand Cru Champagne
“Pierre and Francoise Santz-Clouet, and now their dashing winemaking son Jean-Francois, are the best sort of Champagne growers. Their 8ha vineyards lie on the best middle slopes of Bouzy and Ambonnay, all grand cru sites in a domaine that is just the right size for perfectionist winemaking from great grapes, while providing a comfortable living for a family that still lives in the 17th century village house built by their ancestor, a printer to Louis XV’s royal court at Versailles.“ The Finest Wines of Champagne by Michael Edwards
“It’s always puzzled me that the remarkable, terroir-expressive champagnes of André Clouet never seem to come up among the rockstar growers of Champagne. And yet on the basis of his current cuvées, I have again anointed this little grower in the grand cru village of Bouzy among the top six growers in Champagne. This of course places him among the top sparkling growers on earth. My scores rank him equal to Dom Pérignon, Louis Roederer and Taittinger. And that’s mighty company!” Tyson Stelzer
“Jean-Francois Clouet’s zero-dosage ideal is realised with magnificent clarity here. Such is the concentration and richness of his pinot noir that it has absolutely no need for any sweetness. The bouquet is delightfully fresh, lifted, pure and expressive, with lemon zest, yellow mirabelle plums and red apple fruits. The palate follows impeccably, showcasing the concentration of Bouzy with exceptional purity and focus.
Its barrel work blends impeccably contributing nuances of nougat, brioche and honey. Succulent yellow summer fruits pull seamlessly into a crunchy finish of red apple and lemon zest, concluding long and refined, with refreshingly taut acidity and soft, chalky minerality. Classic Bouzy of the finest order.” TYSON STELZER, The Champagne Guide
