Champagne Jean-François Clouet Grand Cru Cuvée 1911 Bouzy
One day in 1911…
A Champagne Fairytale
Once upon a time, a few precious bottles were hidden away in a small cellar for more than 80 years. By a stroke of luck they were found and became the inspiration for a champagne tribute to the Golden Age we like to call « One day in 1911 ».
We were overcome with sentimental nostalgia when we recovered those bottles, saving them from oblivion. Memories of old Aunt Jenny came flooding back. She had always spoken about them with a sparkle in her eye, remembering their presence at every resplendent celebration and happy occasion during those dazzling early years of the 1900s. Carefully packed with straw, protected in their wooden cases, each bottle was beautifully dressed with a gold foil collar, painstakingly applied by hand.Belle Époque graphic design on the labels transported us back to the Golden Age of France, a time of prosperity, optimism and creative freedom when the arts began to flourish. The House of André Clouet invites you to enjoy « One day in 1911 » the revival of a rediscovered gem from one of the best vineyards in the world. Working with the finest craftsmen, we bring you the magical renaissance of champagne production from the 1900s.
