Champagne Bruno Paillard Dosage Zéro NV

Champagne, FranceA blend of 30 vineyards, and all three main grapes with chard and pinot noir coming off the slopes of Montagne de Reims, and the meunier, the majority grape at 50%, coming out of the Marne. Most of the grapes were fermented and aged in oak before heading to bottle, along with a healthy amount of reserve wines (fermented in a mix of stainless and wood before resting in stainless and bottle for up to 10 years). This spent with 36 months on lees sur lattes, until a zéro disgorge in October 2021. This opens with toast, lemon meringue, deep chalk, red and green apple before a laser beam of nervy lemon acidity driving this through a lengthy shimmering, chalky and saline finish. Quite linear, and quite impressive, with the smart use of reserve wines up against the cut of the D:Z.Tasted: 03 July 2023Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
