Winemaker Notes

A hymn to the bright delicacy of Pinot Noir, the Premiere Cuvee Rosé is named on account of its composition of only the first pressing. The pink copper color with a hint of raspberry when young evolves to salmon while ageing. The fine bubbles are due to a strict selection of the best grapes, perfectly controlled temperature in the cellar and very long ageing. The initial aromas of redcurrant and red fruits evolve to morello cherry, wild strawberry and violet while breathing in the glass. A touch of lemon denotes the discrete presence of Chardonnay. With age, aromas tend towards dark fruits like dark cherry, fig and blackberry. Red fruit captured at their full freshness on the palate. The finish is bright and long.

The Rose Premiere Cuvee is a great match to fine Italian charcuterie, sushi, poultry or red fruit salad.

Wine & Spirits
A masterful blend based on pinot noir from Mailly, Verzenay, Bouzy and Les Riceys, this includes reserve wines going back to 1985, as well as a little chardonnay for freshness. It opens with spicy apple-blossom scents followed by a cascade of flavors—juicy hints of strawberries, cherries, raspberries and watermelon—in a bright, complex and dynamic finish. Tiny bubbles help bridge its richness to elegance.

Pink wine has many meanings. To some it conjures up sweetness in a bottle, but to champagne lovers, it can be the best of all cuvées and in this case the non-vintage Bruno Paillard Rosé Première may be one Champagne's best efforts. Bright in pink and salmon, this one immediately comes to the fore to brighten one's day or to highlight it even more. In the aroma, the one emits wild strawberries and a sprinkle of fresh flowers; medium bodied and quite serious on the palate; dry and crisp on the palate; focused red fruit flavors seem to last forever and that is a great thing with the experience is so joyous. (Tasted: October 21, 2014, San Francisco, CA)

Very complex with orange-peel and apricot character and spiced dried strawberries. Medium body, bright acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Shows drive and intensity. Very nice texture.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Brut Rosé Première Cuvée (Disgorged 03/2017) is based on Pinot Noir and a bit of Chardonnay and shows a bright salmon color as well as a pure, very delicate bouquet with fruity and chalky-mineral flavors on the nose. On the palate, this is an almost juicy, beautifully round but grippy, well-structured and persistent Rosé Brut with an elegant, stimulatingly fresh and grippy finish.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
An elegant rosé, marrying a firm backbone of acidity and a creamy mousse with flavors of crushed white cherry, toasted almond, orange pâte de fruit and pastry. The clean-cut finish is lightly toasty and lingering.

Bruno Paillard, Champagne, France

Bruno Paillard was born in Reims in 1953 into an established family of Champagne "vignerons" and brokers. He started his own brokerage in 1975 and founded his own Champagne house in 1981. In fact, it is the youngest prestige house to be created since World War II. Bruno Paillard is synonymous with quality. One hundred and twenty five acres of Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards provide the exceptional Pinot Noir, Pinot Munier and Pinot Chardonnay grapes which are used in the production of three luxury cuvees and one vintage Champagne. Each wine is produced in the traditional method and under the personal supervision of Bruno Paillard at his striking, state-of-the-art glass and stainless steel facility just outside Reims. Using only the first pressing of the grapes, Mr. Paillard is able to achieve the purest fruit flavors which then develop extraordinary balance during extended aging in the cellars. The Champagnes are all made with the dosage kept as low as possible in order to respect the authenticity of the wines. As a final note of quality, every bottle carries its date of "degorgement". Bruno Paillard is the only Champagne house to do so. The Champagnes of Bruno Paillard are rich, complex and dry but above all, elegant.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Champagne & Sparkling

View all wine

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
