Champagne Paul Clouet

Originally two Champagne houses from different families, houses Bonnaire and Paul Clouet now share a history of dedication, quality, and romance. The history begins with Paul Clouet establishing his self-titled house in 1907 in the Grand Cru village of Bouzy, located in the Montagne de Reims sub-region of Champagne. Bouzy has since been home to the Clouet family for over a century, with Paul Clouet’s granddaughter, Marie-Thérèse taking ownership of the winery in 1992. Similarly, Bonnaire was founded nearby in the Grand Cru village of Cramant, in the Cotes des Blancs sub-region, by Fernand Bouquemont in 1932. His grandson, Jean-Louis Bonnaire, took over in 1966 and built the Champagne Bonnaire reputation that exists today.

Tasting Notes

On the nose there are citrus and fruity aromas, embellished with notes that recall honey and bread crust. When tasted it is round, with a juicy acidity that makes the savory taste really pleasant. It closes with a moderately persistent finish.

Food Matches

Delicious with crab taglietelle

Vinification

The grapes, coming from the Grand Crus of Bouzy and Chouilly, after the first fermentation in steel, remain on their own yeasts in the bottle for at least 36 months, before being disgorged.
