Pierre Paillard, Les Terres Roses, Bouzy Grand Cru
Welcome to the new generation of the family grower. Brothers, Quinton and Antoine Paillard add a cool factor to champagne and are doing a great job. Slick new labels are just a hint to the progressive minds of these new generation wine makers. The wines zoom in on the Bouzy terroir that their vineyards are planted in (yes this is really a Champagne village!). Bouzy is located in the heart of the Montagne de Reims, a renowned Grand Cru for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. The Paillard family settled here in the early 18th century. Eight generations later, they have become an independent Family House, ambitious in its vine-growing expectations. Respect of the soil, control of the yields, vinification per plot and long ageing are the important characteristics of our wines and the motivations behind their daily work.This is a grand cru region famed for big bold pinot noir grapes with power and drive and it presents in most wines created by the maison but the wines are not tempered by dosage. Under the careful watch of father Pierre Paillard, the champagnes from this family owned estate are direct and straight from vine to wine. The Paillard family owns 60% pinot noir and 40% chardonnay grapes, blending pinot noir oriented champagnes and only utilising the ‘noble grape’ varieties. With a staunchly organic and natural approach to their wine making, these are connoisseur’s wines and are strictly on allocation.
As suggested by the house, scampi and lobster are a good fit, along with Japanese style dishes.
