#6 : NV Andre Clouet Grande Reserve Grand Cru

#6 NV Andre Clouet Grande Reserve Grand Cru: Beyond current enthusiasm for these exciting, superb Champagnes, the Clouet family has a history of accomplishment in the region. Their Champagnes are rich, concentrated expressions of Pinot Noir that manage to retain elegance and finesse… Every Champagne lover needs to try these outstanding wines!


If you need something more to back this up Tyson Stelzer clearly states that in his opinion this is the most underrated grower Champagne on the market… “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!”
