Tasting Notes:

Bright straw gold colour, revealing the exclusive use of the first pressing and the large percentage of Chardonnay. Vivid “perlage” with very delicate bubbles. Fresh and fruity nose, initial aromas of citrus fruits: lime and grapefruit, then red fruits: redcurrant, raspberry, Morello cherry. Finally smooth aromas of candied, even exotic fruits. Vivacious on the attack thanks to a low dosage. A chalky minerality. Initial flavours of citrus fruit, almond, toast... but also redcurrant jelly, cherry, fig or blackberry. Complete without being heavy, with a long, clear finish.

The Premiere Cuvee is a very personal interpretation of the whole region, through the selection of 35 of the 320 crus of champagne. It is the flagship of the BRUNO PAILLARD style. A top quality wine, the Première Cuvée has to survive any harvest whether rich or poor.

Morethan 30 Crus, the composition of which is a housesecret.

Exclusively first pressing - the purest juice - Pinot Noir (45%), Chardonnay (33%) and Pinot Meunier (22%), part of which (20%) was in barrel for the first fermentation. A blend of 25 vintages, since 1985; up to 50% of the final blend. Extra brut, very low dosage, less than 6g/L. This creates a very pure, very authentic champagne.

Ageing is longer than the legal requirement; three years sur lie, then a minimum of a further five months after disgorgement.

Food pairing

The Premiere Cuvee champagne is an excellent aperitif. It matches divinely with cheese (Brie de Meaux, Camembert, aged salers), poultry and shellfish.
