Tasting notes
“La Robe”: is very pale and shiny with green tints. The effervescence is lighter than in the other Champagnes thanks to a less powerful bottle fermentation. “Le Nez”: First aromas are citrus – lime and grapefruit – followed by white flowers. While opening in the glass, a touch of almond and toast appears. “La Bouche”: The entry is lively leading to a complex combination of citrus and white flowers. The effervescence is extremely fine, silky and creamy. The finish is fresh and long. Blanc de Blancs Reserve Privee Grand Cru is fantastic for aperitif and can be a beautiful match with a fish and shellfish meal.

Wine maker notes
Exclusively made of Chardonnay grapes, this wine is also known as « the Lace of Champagne » because of its very fine and persistent white mousse… The Chardonnay grapes of Blanc de Blancs Reserve Privee Grand Cru exclusively originate in the famous « Cote des Blancs ». Depending on the needs of the year, the blend includes 20 to 25% of Reserved Wines from that cuvee. Aged for 4 years on the lees, this wine also benefit from a minimum of 8 months of extra age after disgorgement. Like all our wines at Bruno Paillard, its dosage is very low: 5 grams per liter only. For this specific wine, Bruno Paillard still applies a forgotten wine making technique: During the bottling prior to second fermentation, less yeast is added than in a regular Champagne. Therefore, the fermentation creates a lower pressure (4.5 kg against 6 kg usually). This type of wine making is especially appropriate for the delicate Chardonnay varietal: It allows it to show all its minerality, finesse, elegance and freshness and balances it with a rarely found creamy texture.
