Pierre Paillard 'Les Parcelles' XV

Extra Brut

$98.95

Coming from 22 different vineyard cru's in Bouzy, aptly named 'Les Parcelles' is a great expression of the terroir from this village. There is generous aromas of fig, spice, biscotti and almond. After a few moments in the glass yellow fruits, like nectarine introducing some balance to the toasty and rich notes of this wine.

The nose follows through on to the palate with body and richness yet liveliness from the acidity.

Food pairing options: Oysters, sashimi, Thai beef salad, roast chicken or pan seared barramundi. Also, hard and soft cheeses (not pungent).

Welcome to the new generation of the family grower. Brothers, Quinton and Antoine Paillard add a cool factor to champagne and are doing a great job. Slick new labels are just a hint to the progressive minds of these new generation wine makers.

The wines zoom in on the Bouzy terroir that their vineyards are planted in (yes this is really a Champagne village!). This is a grand cru region famed for big bold pinot noir grapes with power and drive and it presents in most wines created by the maison but the wines are not tempered by dosage. Under the careful watch of father Pierre Paillard, the champagnes from this family owned estate are direct and straight from vine to wine.

The Paillard family owns 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay grapes, blending pinot noir oriented champagnes and only utilising the ‘noble grape’ varieties. With a staunchly organic and natural approach to their wine making, these are connoisseur’s wines and are strictly on allocation.

Try a brioche and cheese pastry such as gougere or a simple charcuterie and tapenade.
