Champagne Clandestin is a joint project from Bertrand Gautherot, of Vouette et Sorbée fame, and Benoît Doussot – a Burgundian winemaker specialising in Meursault. Together, they started Clandestin: a micro-négociant which buys sustainably-grown grapes from just 8 hectares, and creates the most terroir-expressive Champagnes imaginable.
This duo are producing limited quantities of fantastic wines, all hand-picked and farmed both organically and biodynamically. The name “clandestine” comes from the French for “hidden” and alludes to the 8 hectares of land they focus on. These historically overlooked parcels of north and west-facing vineyards, nestled above the town of Buxières, produce grapes of outstanding quality.
Each cuvée comes from a particular sun exposure: as the names suggest, Austral’s Pinot Noir grapes come from the south-facing vineyards, while Boreal’s come from the north. This is a Champagne producer whose passion is respectful viticulture and terroir expression, creating wines ideal for Champagne purists who value minerality, cut, and precision.
