This small estate is owned by Marie-Therese Bonnaire (formerly Clouet) who is married to the famous winemaker Jean-Louis Bonnaire in Cramant. Paul Clouet is a so-called grower-Champagne – this means that the owner also makes the Champagne. The vineyards were previously part of the well-known wine house André Clouet before Marie-Therese decided to claim her share and start making her own Champagne. The name Paul Clouet derives from Marie-Therese’s father. The vineyards consist of mostly Pinot Noir of the Grand Cru variety.
