Jean-François Clouet, who was born and raised in Bouzy, still lives in the 18th century village house built by his ancestors. As his family was the official printer to Louis XV’s Royal Court at Versailles, Jean-François takes great pride in his lineage.
Acknowledging the good fortune of his background, Jean-François strives to continually improve upon the estate and its wines by implementing changes that ultimately improve the quality of his wines. The domaine’s 20 acres of Grand Cru vineyards are situated in the coveted middle slopes of Ambonnay and Bouzy. They make a full range of Champagnes, including most famously the glorious Cuvée 1911, which is comprised of 100% Pinot Noir from Clouet’s ten best lieux-dits in Bouzy.
