The Premiere Cuvee is a very personal interpretation of the whole region, through the selection of 35 of the 320 crus of champagne.
Bruno Paillard Champagne Premiere Cuvee Extra Brut NV
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.
More than 30 Crus, the composition of which is a house secret.
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.
Ageing is longer than the legal requirement; three years sur lie, then a minimum of a further five months after disgorgement.
Extra brut, very low dosage, less than 6g/L. This creates a very pure, very authentic champagne. (For the record, the “extra brut” denotes a sugar level of up to 6g/L).
