The Clos contains the Clouet family’s most beautiful genetic combinations of Pinot Noir, encasing each precious vine in a bank vault that’s open to the sky.  This ancestral vineyard, protected by thick walls, is an extension of our elegant family domaine in the heart of Bouzy.  Here Pinot Noir babies are safeguarded from any new strains of phylloxera or contamination.  For centuries, they have been serving the Clouet family, a living experiment for understanding the secret power of Bouzy Black Powder in the Montagne de Reims

(AG=93)The 2006 is the first release of Clouet's Clos de Bouzy, 100% Pinot bottled only in magnum. Considering the year and the richness of Pinot from Bouzy, the Clos de Bouzy is surprisingly bright and floral in its aromas and flavors. The Pinot is mostly felt in the wine's richness and texture. Dried pears, flowers, spices and anise emerge over time, but the 2006 is first and foremost a wine of subtlety. It will be interesting to see if the 2006 puts on additional weight in bottle.(Magnum only)
