NV Bruno Paillard - Première Cuvée Extra Brut (91 pts) @champagnebrunopaillard ℹ️ This Champagne is a blend of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, and 22% Pinot Meunier. The grapes come from over 30 different Crus. The base wine exclusively uses first press juice, and 20% is fermented in a barrel. The blend always has a high percentage (up to 50%) of reserve wines, a perpetual reserve that was started in 1985. The wine is aged on the lees for three years and followed by an additional five months post disgorgement. The dosage is less than 6 g/l. 👁 Pale gold color. 👃 Medium intensity on the nose. Aromas of lemon zest, lemon curd, acacia, green apple, Asian pear, quince, marzipan, and brioche. 👄 The wine is dry, high acidity, persistent fine bubbles, medium alcohol (12%), and medium body. A delicate texture on the palate. A medium length finish of lemon zest, acacia, and brioche. 🔔 Bruno Paillard Première Cuvée is one of my top recommendations for friends looking for an affordable yet quality sparkling wine. It has excellent acidity, complexity due to the high percentage of reserve wines, and a filigree texture on the palate. I like the finesse of this bottling a lot. A total class act and good QPR Champagne. 💰 ~$50 #vin #lovewine #🍷 #wineterroir #wine #brunopaillard #extrabrut #champagne #champagnes #champagnelover
