This impeccable, elegant wine shows terrific overall balance as well as complexity. I loved it.
About The Wine
Clouet's Grand Reserve Brut is made with 100% Pinot Noir from Montagne de Reims, widely recognised as one of Champagne's most powerful Pinot Noir producing regions. With four years on lees and 50% reserve wine Clouet have harnessed that power and produced a wine of remarkable elegance.
Layers of soft red fruits on the nose give way to ripe stone fruit and a delicious bready note. The bead is soft and long.
Well loved by a vast array of press for both style, consistency, and value this is certainly one to add to your celebratory shopping lists.
About Andre Clouet
The Clouet family hold eight hectares of Pinot Noir in the Montagne de Reims, all spread across the Grand Cru villages of Bouzy and Ambonnay. The family have been growing and crafting their excellent champagne since the 1700s and they have a rich history of quality and dedication.
Today the estate is in the hands of Jean Francois Clouet, a wildly imaginative and creative man whose deep passion and lifetime of local experience are taking the wines to new levels. The Clouet Grande Reserve NV is a must for those looking for Grower excellence and value.
