Twenty fourteen marks the first release of the Blanc de Noirs being aged in barrel. Previously the wines were all in stainless steel which preserved the pristine nature of these wines, however oak lends itself marvellously to that fine acid line and chalk texture, providing some cushioning and roundness to the palate.

It also fuses with the bright red pinot fruit, giving way to some sweet cherry and blood orange notes. We love the new incarnation of the Pierre Paillard wines and we will be seeing more oak integration across the production.

Technical details: "The Blanc de Noirs is a 100% pinot noir from a single vineyard of 0.8 hectares called “Les Maillerettes” planted in 1970. This wine is vivacious, showing both the elegance and personality of the pinot noir. On the palate, this champagne is delicate and very fine showing aromas of citrus and notes of small red fruit berries. This is classed as 'Extra Brut' at only 2.6 grams per litre dosage. Only 2,500 bottles produced each year."

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 connoisseurs' wines and are strictly on allocation.
