Bruno Paillard Brut Premiere Cuvee
The NV Brut Premiere Cuvee is exceptionally polished and refined from the very first taste. Lemon, grapefruit, green pears and flowers are some of the many notes that are woven together in this classy, totally polished wine. The two-plus years of bottle age post-disgorgement are a great example of how first-class NV Champagnes can develop beautifully in bottle, something I have seen time and again with Bruno Paillard’s wines. Hints of hazelnut, almond, crushed rocks and pastry add elements of complexity, yet the wine retains its classic sense of energy and vibrancy.
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.
An attractive, fresh mix of citrus and peach fruits here. The gently spicy, biscuity complexity sits amid nicely played autolysis characters that make this fresh and lively. The palate has plenty of bright and sweet-peach and melon-fruit flavors. It's really easygoing, in fact, displaying generous punchy flavors and zesty acid crunch that holds it all together.
