André Clouet founded the champagne house in 1741. Today, Jean-François Clouet is responsible for 7 hectares of vineyards, located in the Grand Cru villages of Bouzy and Ambonnay. His Grand Cru vineyards mainly have pinot noir vines planted. All his champagnes mature for at least 4 years in the underground cellars before being put on the market.
Jean-François works completely naturally through manual harvesting, no irrigation, as little pesticides as possible, different plants and grasses between the vineyards to promote biodiversity and he uses recycled materials for packaging. The famous cult wine de Bouzy Grand Cru Le Clos is the wine that he only releases in the top years and also only when the wine is in perfect condition, which also means that a newer (warmer) year comes on the market earlier than a cool year.
