- Pierre Paillard Bouzy Grand Cru Brut NV Product #24253 (In Stock)
The last release of our favorite "regular" Champagne clocked in with a 92 point rating and spot on Wine Spectator's Top 100 list for 2013. This is even better! A 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, all from Grand Cru vineyards. One of the best Champagne values we know.
"Vivid yellow-gold. Potent red berry, blood orange and quince on the perfumed nose, with a chalky nuance adding lift and focus. Offers sappy red fruit and citrus pith flavors that flesh out and deepen with air while picking up a sexy floral quality. Closes with building spiciness, a hint of toasty lees and excellent clarity and length."International Wine Cellar 92 points
- Pierre Paillard Blanc De Blancs Les Mottellettes 2009 Product #29140 (In Stock)
We were fortunate to introduce you to the first ever release of this rare 100% Chardonnay from the Grand Cru vineyards of Bouzy (better known for its Pinot Noir). In 2009, the Paillard family captured the beautiful fruit of a ripe vintage without sacrificing any cut or verve.
"Pale gold. A sexy, expressive bouquet evokes ripe Meyer lemon, pear, jasmine and iodine, with strong floral and chalky mineral qualities adding complexity. Stains the palate with vibrant citrus and orchard fruit flavors, putting on weight and gaining power as it opens in the glass. This dense yet lively blanc de blancs finishes with superb thrust and resonating mineral and floral qualities. No way that I'd have guessed this Champagne came from a ripe vintage."International Wine Cellar 93 points
