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 2009 Brut Dream Vintage is a very pretty, expressive Champagne. Hazelnut, dried flowers, spices, mint, chamomile and lightly honeyed notes are all wonderfully laced together. Medium in body, radiant and quite open, the 2009 will drink well upon release.  Drink 2018 - 2029.

Antonio Galloni's Vinous (November 2018)

A slew of candied-citrus aromas are married to a full, creamy body and very elegant acidity that carries the richness with ease. Long, gentle finish with plenty of mineral complexity. 100% chardonnay. Drink or hold.
