Pierre Paillard, Grande Recolte 2008, Grand Cru
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.
All of their champagnes are produced from their grapes grown on one of the most prestigious Grand Cru terroirs in Champagne: Bouzy.
Normal Champagne Cuvees can consist of several vintages and base wines. The Grand Cuvee by Krug, for example, consists of over 50 individual layers, 150 basic wines and over 60 vintages! The 2002 Grand Cru Millésime, on the other hand, consists entirely of the harvest of a single year. The 2002 Grand Cru Millésime has a very complex bouquet reminiscent of smoke, wood and ripe yellow fruits. In the mouth it is very creamy and very full. Beautiful is the extremely fine Perlage, which tingles the tongue tingling. As an aperitif he is rather too strong. Nevertheless, this wonderful champagne is best served if you enjoy it without food.
