Why You’ll Love It?
A great champagne for Bruno Paillard is – above all – an “assemblage”, blending: of diverse crus, grape varieties and vintages. It is about the constant desire to capture the quintessential finesse and elegance which champagne can bring when it is served with love and care.
The Bruno Paillard style is a marriage of elegance and complexity which is manifested as a light and smooth effervescence, a remarkable purity, a true freshness and a silky texture.
The “Assemblage” 2008 vintage presents an harmonious balance between generous aromas of almonds, fresh fruits and spicy notes. Aged for 8 years on lees followed by a minimum of 12 months after disgorgement. Extra brut, very low dosage: 5g/L
NOSE Ample, generous, marked by a powerful vitality. Primary aromas of cherries, mixed with small red fruit and enveloped in ripe citrus notes.
PALATE Lively attack whose generosity is deployed, bringing with it a surprising energy. A profusion of spices and ripe fruit notes mixed with fresh almond and wild strawberries.
