Bruno Paillard Rose Premiere Cuvée
|Region||France, Champagne, Reims|
The NV Brut Rose Premier Cuvee is another pure delight. Pale in color, Paillard's Rose is all about minerality, drive and tension. This mid-weight, gracious Champagne literally dances on the palate with its exceptional grace. It is neither too delicate nor overly rich, but just beautifully balanced and harmonious from start to finish. The Rose turns more vinous with time in the glass, but it is an extremely versatile wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with food. Disgorgement date: April 2011. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2016.
A blend of grapes from 12 vineyards, this tight, really dry wine has red-currant crispness and a strongly mineral texture. Being so dry, it needs to age-this was bottled in October 2015 and should not be drunk before 2018.
An elegant rosé, with a smoke-tinged underpinning and a lively, satinlike mousse carrying flavors of ripe raspberry, toast and pickled ginger. Disgorged May 2015. Drink now. 8,300 cases made.
