Champagne Bruno Paillard Overview
+
Brut Premiére Cuvée NV is Bruno Paillard’s flagship Champagne. This lively non-vintage is made exclusively from the first pressing of the grapes (the purest juice) and is a blend of wine from thirty-two villages, all vinified separately. With a high reserve wine content (between 25-48%) and an incredible assemblage of twenty-five vintages dating back to 1985, this is a truly unique non-vintage. The final blend is aged for a minimum of three years on the lees and three months in the cellar post-disgorgement.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 32 of the best villages in Champagne
Grape Varieties: 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 22% Pinot Meunier
Reserve Wine: 25-48%
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Dosage: 6 g/l

Tasting Note: A bright straw-gold colour with vivid bubbles, the nose reveals fresh and fruity aromas of citrus, lime and grapefruit. A combination of red fruits, redcurrant, raspberries and cherry is vivacious on the palate. A chalky minerality, almonds and hints of toast lead the way for a clear and lengthy finish. A good NV.

“The Brut Première Cuvée benefits greatly from ageing and Bruno Paillard sees to it that the cuvée has enjoyed extended post-disgorgement aging already upon release. Soft and evolving creamy nose with fresh Pinot fruit coming through alongside burned sugar, red apple, sweet pastry, liquorice, and smoke. Good width and focus on the palate. It turns hazelnutty, charred and caramelly with time. Even over 10-year-old disgorgements can be stunning. Points may rise as high as 92 over time. The 2012 based cuvée is particularly charming with great harmony and depth alongside exemplary vivacity. ”

“Bruno Paillard's NV Brut Première Cuvée is absolutely delicious. Subtle hints of yellow orchard fruit, pastry and dried flowers grace the palate. Understated and gracious, with fine bubbles and exceptional balance, the Première Cuvée is a classic Bruno Paillard Champagne that emphasizes finesse over all else. Disgorged March, 2015. Dosage is 6 grams per liter.”

“The wine that the house was created around. Back in 1985, Bruno Paillard wanted minerality, freshness, less dosage, not the oxidative yeasts that so many others were using. 45% Pinot Noir, 22% Pinot Meunier, 33% Chardonnay. The wine comes from the first 50 cl that you can extract from a kilogram of grapes. Grapes from the heart of champagne region plus selection of vintages: each and every vintage since 1985. 35 different terroirs. Anything from 35-51% reserve wines. Paillard was one of the first houses to put the disgorging date and have since 1985. This is in bottle for eight months after disgorging. Lemony creamy nose. Tight and sharp and lemony and a wonderful mineral backbone. 10 months disgorged. Structured and overlaid with the lightest of floral white-blossom veil.”
