Bruno Paillard Premiere Cuvee Extra Brut MV

Producer Notes

Identity : The Premiere Cuvee is a very personal interpretation of the whole region, through the selection of 35 of the 320 crus of champagne. It is the flagship of the Bruno Paillard style. A top-quality wine, the Première Cuvée has to survive any harvest whether rich or poor. 

The blend : Exclusively first pressing - the purest juice - Pinot Noir (45%), Chardonnay (33%) and Pinot Meunier (22%), part of which (20%) was in barrel for the first fermentation.

Dosage : Extra brut, very low dosage, less than 6g/L. This creates a very pure, very authentic champagne. 

Producer Tasting Notes

EYE: The golden straw colour reveals a high presence of chardonnay and the exclusive use of the first pressing. The fine bubbles are due to a strict selection of the best grapes, perfectly controlled temperature in the cellar and very long ageing.

NOSE: The primary aromas reveal the citrus fruits of Chardonnay: lime and grapefruit.

Then the red fruits aromas of Pinot Noir appear: redcurrant, raspberry, morello cherries. When left to open up in the glass, the wine shows hints of dried fruits, sometimes exotic, from Pinot Meunier.

PALATE: Lively and vivacious, thanks to a low dosage, the aromas on the nose are echoed in the mouth. Primary flavours of citrus, almonds, and toasted bread, very soon joined by redcurrant jelly but also dark fruits like cherry, fig and blackberry.

TASTINGS: Whilst the wine opens up in the glass, and gets warmer, it expresses light plum and pear flavours. The palate is full, quite long with a very clean finish. The Brut is available in half-bottles , bottles, magnums and jeroboams . Each bottle carries a label , indicating the month.

Food Pairing

FOOD & CHAMPAGNE PAIRINGS: The Premiere Cuvee champagne is an excellent aperitif. It matches divinely with cheese (Brie de Meaux, Camembert, aged salers), poultry and shellfish.

Wine Advocate

The NV Brut Premiere Cuvee is exceptionally polished and refined from the very first taste. Lemon, grapefruit, green pears and flowers are some of the many notes that are woven together in this classy, totally polished wine. The two-plus years of bottle age post-disgorgement are a great example of how first-class NV Champagnes can develop beautifully in bottle.

The Winery
