Marks and reviews
Bruno Paillard Brut Première Cuvée is considered the standard-bearer of the Champagne House. It is a blend of 22% Pinot Meunier, 33% Chardonnay, and 45% Pinot Noir. This Champagne ages for at least 3 years on lees, which is twice the legal minimum imposed by the appellation. Brut Première Cuvée has only a small quantity of added sugar and it is the expression of the 3 varietals from the Champagne Region. Its bright, straw- coloured golden robe and its fine sparkling give way to a good aromatic freshness. The fruit prevails on the bouquet: red berries lead to citrus fruits with notes of exotic fruits that come from the Pinot Meunier. On the palate, the attack is bold and one can feel chalk minerals. Moreover, it is quaffable and has a nice length. The finish is clear.
