N.V. André Clouet Champagne Silver Brut (France, Champagne, Bouzy, Champagne)

Bouzy, Champagne, France

Purchased locally for what I thought was a good price, this Champagne was pleasant. As a non-dosage Champagne, this was predictably dry and packed with both toasted nut and citrus flavors. Nice mid-palate and finish. Only minor issue for me was that the bead was too coarse, which made the texture a little too rough for me, but that might be splitting hairs. Very nice drink, but in the $40 price range, one can do better with other producers.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
