Winemaker's Notes:

With all fruit coming from the 2008 vintage, this champagne, an original Chardonnay, is a beautiful expression of the Bouzy terroir, a region primarily known for its Pinor Noirs. The bouquet delicately expresses aromas of citrus and dried fruit. The palate is intense, creamy and voluptuous. Citrus notes and exotic fruit blend in with floral notes and juicy fruit. Precise and neat, this champagne develops further in the mouth displaying the subtle balance between fruit and minerality.

About Pierre Paillard:

Bouzy is located in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, a renowned Grand Cru for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Paillard family settled here in the early 18th century. Eight generations later, they have become an independent Family House, ambitious in its vine-growing expectations. Respect of the soil, control of the yields, vinification per plot and long ageing are the important characteristics of our wines and the motivations behind their daily work.

All of their champagnes are produced from their grapes grown on one of the most prestigious Grand Cru terroirs in Champagne: Bouzy. Our vineyards make up 11 hectares (28 acres), composed of 60% Pinot Noir and 40 % Chardonnay.
