Pierre Paillard La Grande Recolte '08

Vintage 2008

$179.95

- Great vintage champagne from a 10/10 year

- Equal blend of Pinot noir & Chardonnay with long ageing potential

- Pair with a loved one or excellent vintage parmesan. Both is better. 

"A vintage champagne is the ultimate champagne in expressing richness and complexity. This is a 50:50 split of pinot and chardonnay coming from some of the oldest family parcels. The colour is golden and the palate offers very refined aromas of red berries, blood orange and chalky minerality. The bubbles are fine, creamy and sensuous. Drink now. Extra brut – 2.6 grams per litre of dosage so extra brut."

Alexandre Rougeot - Clos Cachet Fine Wine Imports

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.

As suggested by the house, this goes with many types of foods due to its richer and well-structured nature... fresh lobster, seared scallops or a simple slice of aged Comté cheese.
