Grand cru Champagne from the village of Bouzy and from a family with 200 years' experience cultivating the chalk of the Montagne de Reims. A 60:40 pinot-chardonnay blend that is full-flavoured, distinguished and a pleasure to drink.
The Paillards are an old Champagne family associated with the village of Bouzy. For many generations the Paillards were shepherds, innkeepers or even traders and teachers, when one Pierre Paillard bought a patch of vineyard in Bouzy. That was in 1768 and, eight generations later, the family is still there, crafting generously flavoured Champagnes, all from their own grapes and all from the village of Bouzy, now rated as grand cru for the outstanding quality of both its pinot noir and chardonnay grapes. Present in the business are Benoit Paillard with his sons Antoine and Quentin.
