Bruno Paillard Premiere Cuvee (375ML half-bottle)
The Premiere Cuvee champagne is an excellent aperitif. It matches divinely with cheese (Brie de Meaux, Camembert, aged salers), poultry and shellfish.
Blend: 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 22% Pinot Meunier
Critical AcclaimAll Vintages
A whiff of flint precedes fresh lemon notes that pervade the entire wine with vivid freshness. The palate is taut and bright, with a rather salty, iodine savoriness. Lovely depth from the great proportion of reserve wines. The finish is brisk, with citrus and umami.
This blends pinot noir (45 percent), meunier (22 percent) and chardonnay, creating a round and generous Champagne with a ghosting of red fruit. Those flavors of red apples and strawberries are cut by the wine’s mineral acidity, then they open up again in the finish, lasting on chalk, nuts and crisp fresh fruit.
