When it comes to Pinot Noir in Champagne, the grand cru villages of Bouzy and Ambonnay rank amongst the greatest in the region. And one of the most talented exponents from here is the Clouet family based in Bouzy. Champagne Andre Clouet have been producing Champagne for over two centuries, and under the guidance of Jean Francois Clouet the wines have never looked better. While his wines are exuberant and concentrated, Jean Francois manages to counter this with immaculate finesse and detail on the palate.

Dream Vintage by Andre Clouet is dedicated to the grand vintages of Champagne. In contrast to their other wines, Dream Vintage is 100% grand cru Chardonnay from their vineyards in Bouzy. Label inspiration comes from the striking colours of Cadillac cars from the 1950's.

Other Reviews....
The 2006 Brut Dream Vintage is powerful and a touch austere, but pleasantly so, as there is good energy and enough depth to support at least a handful of years of fine drinking once the wine relaxes a bit. This deceptively medium-bodied wine has quite a bit of punch. Drink 2018 - 2026

Antonio Galloni's Vinous

A rich and almost opulent champagne for lovers of mature chardonnay. As much melted butter as candied-lemon and orange character. Glides over the palate into the very silky finish, the touch of salinity creating a wonderful tension with the creaminess. 100% chardonnay. Drink or hold.
