Best of the Best 2016: Leisure | International White Wines: André Clouet Brut Champagne Cuvée 1911 Grand Cru Bouzy

The Champagne is derived from 100 percent Pinot Noir from the Grand Cru vineyards of Bouzy...

Although the Grande Marque Champagnes are the most famous, boutique-grower Champagnes can deliver a depth, texture, and personality that are unmatched in terms of price-to-quality ratio. André Clouet’s exquisite tête de cuvée is one of the best examples. With only 1,911 bottles produced each year, it rivals major producers’ top wines at a fraction of the price.

  • The Champagne is derived from 100 percent Pinot Noir from the Grand Cru vineyards of Bouzy.
  • The most recent release contains the vintages of 2002 (50 percent), 1997 (25 percent), and 1995 (25 percent).
  • Complex aromas leap from the glass: freshly baked brioche, red currant, dried pineapple, orange peel, preserved lemon, and white flowers.
