2010, low dosage, disgorged 2016. The nose offered more leesy toast than the crisp apple palate. Unexpected at this age and style, pretty with it but slightly shy.

2013 base wine, April 2018 disgorgement. Right now for me Pierre Paillard is making some of the best extra brut Champagne out there. Great wine, great value.

Delish. Nice bubbles. Lemon curd on the finish.

Very dry and almost austere. Ferrous note mix with redcurrant, cherry, charcoal and orange rind. Remarkably complex for such a compact and linear wine.

Wow. Powerful and racy. Muscular bubbles. Very young and can continue to age.

Delightful bright acidity, a touch of minerality and great complexity. Hazelnuts, bitter cocoa and baking spice. Under ripe pear adds to the acidity. Green fruit peels, add an almost perfume note. Long dry finish. Pair with a squash soup (no cream!) truffle oil, and a pecorino crisp

Fabulous bubbly. Light, crisp, sharp and incredibly tasty with squash soup.

Excellent grower Champagne. 100% Pinot Noir grapes exclusively grown on the Paillard family plot in Bouzy. A great combination of freshness and nutiness with an almost creamy mouthfeel.
