Our oenologists' opinion
Beautiful straw yellow colour with a bright yellow reflection, limpid and brilliant, fine and persistent bubbles. Also persistent cord. Open nose with apple compote and brioche. Lively and mineral attack, on citrus fruits then on the more complex aromas of fat and minerality.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.

The muselet (iron string) that surrounds the champagne’s cork is twisted 6 times!
Domain and appellation
Founded in 1981, the Bruno Paillard maison established itself internationally with 75% of its sales dedicated to the export. The domain also stands out through sustainable viticulture practices that aims at preserving the Champagne’s terroir.
- Terroir: The vineyards lay on a typical Champagne chalk soil. Sustainable practices allow the vines to go deep down the soil and ensure their perennity.
- Viticulture: Grapes are for some sourced out from local winegrowers and for others stemming directly from the Paillard’s vineyards.
- Vinification: This Champagne Première Cuvée (First Growth) is made of pinot meunier, chardonnay and pinot noir that stems from over 30 different crus. 20% are fermented in oak barrels. The Champagne ages for three years on the lies and lays for another 5 months after degorgement. The dosage is low with less than 6g/l.
Grapes Pinot Meunier, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir
- Pinot Meunier : 22%
