Champagne Bruno Paillard Dosage Zéro NV

Champagne, FranceDosage Zéro 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, base year 2018, 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 bottle spent with 36 months on lees sur lattes, until a zéro disgorge in May 2022. White cherry, crunchy red apple, is scented with fresh blossoms, seasoned with subtle toast, and kissed with ginger. A buzzy chalky base draws this along the palate, while the depth of the perpetual reserve is deftly harmonized by the 0 dosage. Stylish, and smart, this is a well built wine drinking very well now and with time ahead.Tasted: 29 May 2024Tasted by: Prices:
