GROWER CHAMPAGNE CLUB

OCTOBER 2021

TWO BOUZY CLOUETS

Bouzy is arguably (some say easily) the most revered Grand Cru village in Montagne de Reims and one does not have to look far to see how the history of the Clouet name is intertwined throughout. The south facing slopes of Pinot Noir are distinctly mapped out according to single vineyard sites, and the most exclusive grapes go to the big house contracts like Bollinger, Moët & Chandon, Pol Roger, and Taittinger. 

 

Bouzy is also one of the few villages from which you’ll find a long standing (and recognized) tradition for making a still Pinot out of their Grand Cru grapes. Although growing seasons are getting noticeably warmer for places like Champagne, it is still a rare thing to find these Bouzy Rouge wines – never maxing out over 50,000 bottles total in a great year. Both of these Champagnes are top notch reflections of the beautiful Bouzy terroir despite being quite different, as well as being equally important representations of the Clouet name that is historically synonymous in this iconic village.

 

Cheers!
