Champagne Pierre Paillard – Verzenay Grand Cru 2018
At Champagne Pierre Paillard, Benoit and his sons Antoine and Quentin are custodians of an eight generation family business; passionately crafting Champagne with extreme finesse. Crafted from old vines pinot noir located in the Grand Cru village of Verzenay. This wine is primarily sourced from the lieu-dit Les Corettes planted directly under the iconic Moulin (windmill) de Verzenay and Les Champs Saint Martin.
This results in a champagne with a sleek, energetic structure, characterized not only by typical red-fruit flavours, but also yellow fruits like peach and apricot, underlined by citrus notes that veer towards grapefruit or pomelo. While it feels ripe and complete, it’s notably less opulent than some other wines of the village, due to that strong site signature." - Peter Liem. Extra Brut – 0 grams per litre of dosage.
