Pierre Paillard Les Parcelles Bouzy Grand Cru Extra Brut XIV NV

Champagne, FranceLes Parcelles is sourced entirely from the Paillard's home village of Bouzy, and from 22 plots of the family's sustainably-farmed vines, now averaging 25 years. As noted by the XIV on the label, this is based on the 2014 vintage (70%), and is a mix of 70/30 pinot noir / chardonnay (the latter an anomaly in PN-centric Bouzy), disgorged in November 2018 after 4 years on lees, and with less than 2 g/l dosage. Pillows of vanilla meringue, patisserie, pear brioche are sliced with slivers of lemon pith, edging this to a lingering humming finish.Tasted: 03 April 2020Tasted by: Prices: BC 63.00 BCLS Producer: Champagne Pierre PaillardDistributors: The Wine Syndicate
