Pierre Paillard is a grower Champagne producer with 200 years of family winemaking and eight generations under its belt. The family’s roots are from the Grand Cru village of Bouzy located at the southern slopes of the Montagne de Reims. Brothers Quentin and Antoine carry on their family’s legacy by making farming top priority. There is an immense focus on the fruit, as they strengthen the vines by encouraging the flora and fauna around them. With fruit of this caliber, there is less reason to intervene in the cellar. Their is very little done to the wine beyond extended lees aging, and the results are Champagnes exuding intensity and elegance.
“The parcels” is blended from a whopping 22 different vineyard sites, all from Grand Cru sites in the village of Bouzy. The wine is aged for 48 months on its lees before release. It’s quite impressive that this Pinot Noir dominated wine is by default the estate’s entry level wine because it’s anything but that.
