Single vineyard Chardonnay. Canned apricot, yellow delicious apple, baked apple and pear. Toasty and broad on the palate. Elevated acidity, medium+ intensity and finish.

Really outstanding. Nose of vanilla pastry cream, like breaking open a fresh eclair or something. Full rounded palate finishes with red apple skins and buttery brioche.

04/18 Disg, 1.8 g/l dosage. Should have read notes here before popping. The mousse is pretty rough right now...decant if you're drinking now...definitely young and needs plenty of time. On the nose: lovely vanilla cream, lemon, soft toasted hazelnut. On the palate: intense acidity, good density, but mousse is just over-the-top..soft grapefruit and good length. Don't touch again for at least 5 years.

COVID-19 Diary Week Three: This Blanc de Blancs champagne from Pierre Paillard is 100% Chardonnay and excellent. It has the aroma of honey and wet grass, and tastes of yellow apple and lemon. This is an off-dry champagne that is appropriately balanced in its sweetness and earthiness. There is a lingering acidity on the tongue and a great finish accentuating thus well-balanced champagne. This quality NV champagne from the Grand Cru town of Bouzy is one that I highly recommend, celebration or not.
