Pierre Paillard Grand Cru NV

Pierre Paillard Grand Cru NV

  • A small, family-owned grower estate with over 200 years history of growing and making Champagne.
  • "The vine is my canvas and my wines are my paintings"- Benoit Paillard.
  • A fine, well balanced fizz that blows the socks off some of the more illustrious big houses.

This family-owned estate has over 200 years history of growing and crafting Champagne. These 'small grower' Champagnes are some of the most exciting this region has to offer, giving you a chance to look past the bright lights and flashy ads of the Grande Marques. This blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay has incredible vibrancy. Citrus fruit and a touch of toast on the nose. Long bottle ageing has developed a finely bubbled, soft palate. Red apple and pear are followed by brioche and grilled almonds.

"You know, being a vine-grower is a rustic life, following the rhythm of the vine, the harvest and various encounters. Everything is always moving, what's more with a new generation coming up, under the influence of magic emotion and simplicity! We live through this together." Benoit Paillard, poetic winemaker
