Tasting notes
“La Robe”: The golden straw colour reveals a high presence of chardonnay and the exclusive use of the first pressing. The fine and smooth bubbles are due to a strict selection of the best grapes, a perfectly controlled temperature in the cellar and a very long ageing. “Le Nez”: The first aromas reveal the citrus fruits of Chardonnay like lime and grapefruit. Then the red fruits aromas of Pinot Noir appear like red-currant, raspberry, morello cherries. While opening in the glass, the wine shows hints of dried fruits, sometimes exotics from Pinot Meunier. “La Bouche”: Lively entry thanks to a low dosage, the nose is confirmed in the mouth. First flavour of citrus, almonds, toasted bread very soon joined by red-currant jelly but also dark fruits like cherry, fig and blackberry. While opening in the glass, getting warmer, the wine expresses light plum and pear flavours. The mouth is full, quite long with a very clean finish. Elegance, complexity, this wine is the exact translation of the Bruno Paillard style.

Wine maker notes
Brut Premiere Cuvee is a true reflection of the Champagne area because it includes the 3 grape varieties from more than 30 villages. At 60% of the house production, it is the flagship of Bruno Paillard style. Top quality wine, Brut Premiere Cuvee has to survive any harvest whether rich or poor. No effort is saved to reach this constant quality. -The exclusive use of the first pressing, also named “cuvee”, guarantees the best and purest juice. -The noblest varieties dominate the blend: 45% of Pinot Noir, 33% of chardonnay and 22% of Pinot Meunier. -Depending on the year, the blend includes 20 to 50% of “Brut Premiere Cuvee Reserved Wines” aged in tanks and barrels. -In the event of a very bad year, production is down and more reserved wines are used (as for 1994 and 2001). -The ageing of Brut Premiere Cuvee goes far beyond the law. Bottles spend more than three years in the cellar before disgorgement plus 3 to 4 months after. -A true “Brut”, this wine has a very low “dosage” with only 6 grams per litre. Fine and elegant, Brut Premiere Cuvee is a wine of balance and complexity.
