Winemaker's Notes

Made only in the best vintages, this cuvee is made from a selection of grapes from fourteen crus in the Marne. As always at Bruno Paillard, only the first pressing has been used. Since he established the house, Bruno Paillard has produced vintages with very different personalities that he has personally selected.

The first notes are fresh, almost bitter almond, followed by fresh white peach, cherries, mulberry and some hints of wood on the nose. A quite fresh taste dominated by fruity and spicy notes. Candied lemon and almond paste on the palate with a very vivacious and long finish.

Critical Acclaim

"A finely textured Champagne, fresh and lively but enriched by hints of beeswax and spun honey that accent flavors of white raspberry, tangerine, apple tarte Tatin, almond and ground ginger. Offers a clean, mineral-tinged finish. "
93 Points

"ight gold. Floral- and spice-accented aromas of lemon, orange and pear, with suave smoke and iodine nuances adding complexity. Bright, penetrating citrus fruit flavors put on weight with air, picking up notes of melon and poached pear. Rich but nervy Champagne with strong finishing cut and excellent mineral-driven persistence."

An 18th Century Benedictine monk named Dom Perignon is said to be the first to blend both varietals and vintages, making good wines not only great, but also special and unique to their winemaker. Today, nearly 75% of Champagne...

Learn About Vintage

Vintage Champagne and Sparkling Wines Vintage Champagne is made in particularly good years with optimum weather and the best grape selection. Some houses, like Dom Perignon, only make vintage Champagne, so they do not produce a wine every year and have no non-vintage bottlings. What makes vintage Champagne better? Well, status for one - many vintage Champagnes are...
