Description & Technical Information
-
Bruno Palliard was founded in 1981. Still a family-run operation and now the proprietor to thirty-two hectares of land that cover the best Crus of Champagne, the Maison receives grapes from over forty carefully selected plots to blend into their cuvées. In addition the reserve wines at Bruno Paillard are kept in tanks and small oak barrels and the House uniquely uses a rare technique in Champagne: blending the reserve wines a year prior to assemblage. The multi-vintages mature in the cellars for an average of three years and the single vintage wines for between eight and twelve years.

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: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Over 32 Crus
Grape Varieties: 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 22% Meunier
Reserve Wine: 25-48%
Ageing: 3 years on the lees
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now to 2022

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.

Antonio Galloni
“The NV Extra Brut Premiere Cuvée is bright, precise and beautifully focused. In other words, a classic Bruno Paillard Champagne. Lemon confit, white flowers, tangerine peel, chamomile and dried flowers all grace this taut, super-expressive NV Champagne. Medium in body and airy, with terrific depth the Premiere Cuvée is classy and inviting. Time in the glass brings out the breadth and textural richness of the red grapes in the blend. It will drink beautifully as an aperitif or with lighter foods at the dinner table. Disgorged: October, 2018.”

“45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 22% Meunier. Three years on lees. Blends 35 village crus. Stainless steel and 26% barrel fermented. Held nine months before bottling. Reserves from a perpetual blend since 1985, up to 50% of the whole blend. Extra Brut (dosage <6 g/l). Disgorged 2017.
Brisk and pretty on the nose. Well integrated and punchy even though a bit more mainstream that some of the smaller growers’ wines.”
16.5/20
Richard Hemming
“Bright, concentrated green-apple fruit with rich biscuit and salted almond complexity. Long and round on the palate, with smartly balanced acid and dosage. Finishes with a touch of honey. Proper classic styling – an old master. (RH)”

Essi Avellan MW
“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. ”
92/100
Antonio Galloni
“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.”
16.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“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.”

    Bruno Paillard: Realisation of a Dream

    Bruno Paillard founded this eponymously named Champagne house in 1981: the first in nearly a century. A remarkable success story that is still being written... we met with daughter, Alice and tasted (sniffed) the 2016 Vins Clairs and current Champagne range.
