Pierre Paillard Bouzy 'Les Parcelles' Grand Cru Extra BrutSparkling
Pinot Noir, Chardonnay
Traditional, Organic, Biodynamic, Generational Winery
'Over the course of 200 years, the Paillards identified and procured 30 prime plots of vineyard in Bouzy, resulting in outstanding Champagnes. Their high-quality and consistent Champagne is the result of prolonged cellar maturation to provide balance, complexity and finesse. The 'Les Parcelles' is exclusively a Grand Cru blend featuring 30% of reserve wine and the 2015 base wine (70%). It is a blend of 70% Pinot Noir and of 30% Chardonnay. After blending the cuvées, the wines are bottled and undergo malolactic fermentation. They mature on their own lees for four years – a much longer period of time than many of the other producers in Champagne. The 'Les Parcelles' spends four years in Domaine Pierre Paillard’s deep cellar at 10 degrees to mature and gain tiny, silky bubbles, while developing the house style. This Champagne is sophisticated, versatile – drink now or save for that special occasion!'
