  • André Clouet is a wine making family whose origins, as they say, “are lost in the mists of time”. The founder was printer in Louis XV court of Versailles and, for several generations, the descendants continued this handiwork. The peculiar “Anciene Régime” style of its labels is the tribute to the household founder.

    More than two centuries and several Clouet generations were needed to obtain the plots of land for vine cultivation in the Bouzy terroir, which is kept nowadays in hands of the family.  Bouzy is located at the southern part of Reims Mountain.

    Pierre and François Sanz-Clouet have 9 hectares vineyard, in a fabulous patchwork of plots in Bouzy village: “Les Petites Brousses”, “Les Hautes Brousses”, “Les Vaudeyants”, “Les Ramoniers”, “Les Ronsures”, “Les Cercets”, “Les Gouttes d'Or”, “La Croix”, “Les Varnets”, and “La Village” are the most remarkable. All of them are classified as 100% Grand Cru: only 17 villages of the 300 in Champagne can benefit the Grand Cru category, and Bouzy is one of them.

    André Clouet vineyards, with fresh and clay-limestone soils, are coddled to obtain perfectly mature Pinot Noir from Bouzy, as it is one of the most delicates in the world. With severe pruning, slight fertilization to minerally enrich the soil and moderate treatments, the performance is quite poor. Harvest is carried out manually and there is an important selection of clusters to remove all those that are not fully mature and or unhealthy.

    Which are André Clouetchampagnes? André Clouet Grande Réserve Grand Cru, produced only with Pinot Noir; André Clouet Brut Rosé Grand Cru, champagne rosé with an excellent quality-pleasure relation; André Clouet Brut Millésime, a 100% Pinot Noir champagne pure breed with a terrific ageing; André Clouet Silver Brut Nature  is  André Clouet Grande Réserve Grand Cru version without liqueur d'expédition; and finally  André Clouet Un Jour 1911, which production is only 1911 bottles per year, and being the result of different vintages.
