Champagne André Clouet, Grand Cru Brut Rosé “No.3”

André Clouet’s Bouzy Rosé is the VIP, the cause célèbre, the superstar of SommSelect. Of the dozen-plus iterations we’ve offered over the years, they’ve all been deliciously rich, vivid Champagnes with the rare ability to captivate a room. Truly, we’ve yet to find a Grand Cru Rosé competitor that can come close to matching its outstanding price-to-quality! 

As always, Clouet’s luxurious rosé hails from one of the greatest Pinot Noir terroirs in Champagne: Bouzy. It is from these majestic Grand Cru grounds that Jean-François Clouet handcrafts a mineral-studded, red-fruited, unapologetically generous rosé powerhouse that receives perfect marks from us time after time. After all these years, it’s still holding steady right around the $50 mark, too, which is why we never tire of drinking/offering it. However, the wine world has become ever-so-aware of Clouet’s stunners, so we’re generally limited to once-per-year offers on his “No. 3” rosé. That’s why our subscribers take their full 12-bottle share when this unbeatable value finally does make a fleeting appearance on our site. Enjoy!

The Clouet family first found the spotlight after becoming the official printers for the Royal Court at Versailles in the mid-18th century (hence the beauty of their wine labels), but their estate in Bouzy, which current owner Jean-François Clouet still calls home, dates back even further! Beneath this historic site lies their labyrinthine chalk cellar, which still contains partial false walls that hid precious bottles during the Nazi’s invasion in World War II. With all this historic grandeur surrounding him, Jean-François draws from tradition and time-honored techniques while respectively embracing modern technology. Clouet is a Pinot Noir specialist—Bouzy is widely regarded as one of Champagne’s greatest sites for Pinot Noir—and his wines are bold, soil-expressive, sumptuous Champagnes that demand to be enjoyed with food. 

Derived from mid-slope vines within the prestigious Grand Cru village of Bouzy, this rosé is crafted from 100% Pinot Noir with a healthy portion of reserves. This wine fermented, both alcoholic and malolactic, in stainless steel vessels and then aged for several years in bottle. After disgorgement, it was topped off with a dosage of six grams of sugar and a small percentage of still Bouzy Pinot Noir to achieve its trademark bright salmon color. Fun fact: The term “No.3” was originally created to assist customers in judging the color with the numbers ranging from one, the lightest, to 10, the darkest. 

With incredible terroir, extended lees aging, and meticulous winemaking, Clouet’s rosé offers an incredibly balanced combination of ripe fruit, texture, depth, and minerality that is nearly unrivaled. Its vibrant salmon pink gives off astonishingly ripe, ultra-clean aromas that burst out as energetic beads of carbonation swirl upward with vigor. Service temperature is always key, especially in high-quality Champagne, so make sure you’re sniffing and drinking around 50-55 degrees. When at the optimal temperature, it erupts with seductive notes of red cherries, blood orange, grapefruit zest, strawberry coulis, raspberry, damp rose, finely crushed chalk, and a soft touch of wild herbs. For the newcomers: This is not an angular rosé! It boasts ripe, stunningly supple textures that deliver the utmost pleasure. Delightful in its youth, this wine’s fruit will take on savory components over the next 2-3 years, so stow a few bottles away, or at the very least space them out over the next year until the next disgorgement arrives! Cheers!

Enjoying the greatest wines of Beaujolais starts, as it usually does, with the lay of the land. In Beaujolais, 10 localities have been given their own AOC (Appellation of Controlled Origin) designation. They are: Saint Amour; Juliénas; Chénas; Moulin-à Vent; Fleurie; Chiroubles; Morgon; Régnié; Côte de Brouilly; and Brouilly.

Southwestern France


Bordeaux surrounds two rivers, the Dordogne and Garonne, which intersect north of the city of Bordeaux to form the Gironde Estuary, which empties into the Atlantic Ocean. The region is at the 45th parallel (California’s Napa Valley is at the38th), with a mild, Atlantic-influenced climate enabling the maturation of late-ripening varieties.

Central France

Loire Valley

The Loire is France’s longest river (634 miles), originating in the southerly Cévennes Mountains, flowing north towards Paris, then curving westward and emptying into the Atlantic Ocean near Nantes. The Loire and its tributaries cover a huge swath of central France, with most of the wine appellations on an east-west stretch at47 degrees north (the same latitude as Burgundy).

Northeastern France


Alsace, in Northeastern France, is one of the most geologically diverse wine regions in the world, with vineyards running from the foothills of theVosges Mountains down to the Rhine River Valley below.
