Professional Wine Reviews for Bruno Paillard Champagne Brut 1er Cuvee

Rated 91 by Stephen Tanzer
Pale gold. Expressive, precise aromas of nectarine, pear skin and chalky minerals. Racy and focused on the palate, displaying steely citrus and orchard fruit flavors underscored by zesty minerality. Concentrated but silky and brisk, with strong finishing cut and excellent length.
Rated 90 by Wine Spectator
Flavorful and bold in style, this has earthy, toasty aromas, a broad, rich texture and lemon-butter flavors that linger on the finish. Not just bubbly, but a real wine for the table. Drink now through 2001.

Additional Information on Bruno Paillard Champagne Brut 1er Cuvee

Winery: Bruno Paillard

Varietal: Champagne Blend

There are few wine regions of the world with as much influence or fame as that of Champagne in France. The sparkling wines from this special area have long been associated with excellence and magnificent flavors, and much of their success has been down to the careful blending of fine grape varietals in order to achieve spectacular results. Most commonly, Champagne wines use both Chardonnay and Pinot Noir varietal grapes in more or less equal measures, often boosted by a small quantity of Pinot Meunier for extra bite. The Chardonnay varietal grapes offer their acidity and flavor to the bottle, and help with the dryness associated with quality in this type of wine. The Pinot Noir, on the other hand, gives strength to the wine, and gives Champagne its distinctive 'length' of character.

Region: Champagne

The north-easterly region of Champagne in France is amongst the most famous and well respected wine regions in the world. It's principle produce, the elegant sparkling white wines made with a blend of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Petit Meunier grape varietals, have consistently grown in popularity for hundreds of years, and are still the sparkling wines of choice for most people across the globe. The region is quite an unusual one, in many ways. The high altitude and cool climate make it difficult for the grapes to ripen, but it is helped enormously by the mineral-rich, chalky soils which typify the region, and the heavily forested areas which help maintain moisture in the soil and an even temperature. The wineries of the region have generations of expertise, and know exactly how to make the most of their grape varietals, resulting in the distinctive and famous wines of Champagne we know and love.
