Andre Clouet Champagne Cuvee 1911 NV
Andre Clouet Champagne Cuvee 1911 NV 750ml
Price: $99.99

Bursting with tropical and citrus fruits, toasted brioche, crushed roses, a kiss of spice and a sophisticated core of saline minerality, this Champagne marries power with finesse thanks to its mousse-like texture that’s backed with bracing acidity. This is a serious Champagne that begs to be sipped from a Burgundy glass, yet it’s so food-friendly that you can enjoy it from the meal’s beginning to its end. Cuvée 1911 respects an old Champagne tradition of blending multiple vintages that few houses practice these days; for this Champagne, Clouet blends multiple vintages; its current release uses a blend of half 2008 vintage with the remainder a solera blend of old reserve wines. Cuvée 1911 commemorates the year riots broke out in the Champagne region as the local farmers rebelled against the larger houses, as well as the number of bottles André Clouet makes each bottling. This mono-varietal Pinot Noir Champagne is a blend of the estate’s best reserve wines dating from 2001; the wine ages sur lie in bottle for about seven years before it receives a low 6-grams per liter dosage. more info
