Bruno Paillard Premiere Cuvee 750 ml

SHIPPING INFORMATION

Bruno Paillard’s family lineage of brokers and growers in the two Grand Cru villages of Bouzy and Verzenay dates back to 1704. Following in their footsteps, Bruno began as a broker in 1975, and acquired a deep and extensive knowledge of the region and its wines. In 1981, at the age of 27, he started his own Champagne house – the first new maison in nearly a century. After renting a cellar for three years and purchasing carefully selected grapes from independent growers, Bruno released his first Champagnes. He then built his own cellar, allowing him total control over temperature, lighting and humidity. In 1990 Bruno built his current winery, and in 1994 began purchasing vineyards. He now has 62 acres, almost half of which are Grand Cru. The fruit from these vineyards cover 50% of his production needs and they are farmed organically and sustainably – a rigorous and delicate job given that his holdings are subdivided into 70 different parcels. Bruno sources the remaining fruit through long-term contracts with high-quality, independent growers. The grapes are hand-harvested, only juice from the first press is used and each wine is vinified separately in stainless steel (75%) and oak (25%). The exception is N.P.U. which is fermented and aged entirely in oak. The multi-vintage blends incorporate 25-50% reserve wines. Sur lie aging is two to three times the AOC requirement - three years for the multi-vintages, at least eight years for the vintages and 10-15 years for the N.P.U. Although they are labeled as Brut, all of Paillard’s Champagnes are technically Extra Brut as their dosage is 6 grams or less per liter. Bruno Paillard produces a mere 42,000 cases per year. From the Brut Premiere Cuvee to the N.P.U. (Non Plus Ultra), each cru shares a hallmark – a certain finesse and wonderful tension between fruit and acidity. Naturally, they pair beautifully with food and Champagne Bruno Paillard can be found on the wine list of more than 400 Michelin starred restaurants. All bottles carry the disgorgement date on the back label, a quality step pioneered by Paillard. After disgorgement, the bottles rest in the cellar for a minimum of 3-4 months before they are labeled and shipped.


10% discount on purchase of 12 or more bottles. Bottles can be mixed and matched for the discount.
