Chicago Epicurean: Jean-François Clouet gives tour @ Clouet vineyards

Met this guy yesterday at a champagne tasting at The Artisan Cellar wine shop at the Merchandise Mart. I got a bottle of the Andre Clouet Grand Cru Bouzy Silver for $40. Great bubbly, if you haven’t tried it yet. (It retails for $70 or so.) Only bad thing: It’s hard to find.

As Clouet and I spoke, the passion he has for his work became quite clear.

Enjoy the video!
