Pierre Paillard Bouzy Grand Cru 'Les Parcelles' XVI Grand Cru Extra Brut

2 items left

Bouzy, Champagne

Aptly named, the fruit comes from 22 different vineyard s of their own entirely in Bouzy; a celebrated Grand Cru village on the southern slopes of the Montagne de Reims, whose Pinot Noir is famed for its brilliance.  It's farmed organically, wild fermented and the blend is 70% 2016 vintage with 30% reserve wines. 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. It spends a full 4 years on lees and was disgorged in October 2020, with a negligible dosage of 1.8 g/litre. Incredibly sophisticated, it shows savoury stone fruit and mandarin upfront with peach and citrus fruit appearing towards the finish, accented with wild herbs, chalk, spice and a lick of ripe raspberry. Pair with duck rillettes or cheeses like Comté or Parmigiano Reggiano.

The family has worked hard to breed and develop robust vines with natural disease resilience, avoiding chemical intervention. This is a key reason for the Paillard’s consistently high quality of Champagne. Extraordinarily, the entire vineyard of Domaine Paillard has the highest Champagne classification of Grand Cru. The Paillard family owns 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay grapes, blending Pinot Noir oriented Champagnes. The Paillards only use these ‘noble grape’ varieties and their entire production comes exclusively from their own vineyards.
