Pierre Paillard "Les Parcelles" Grand Cru Extra Brut Bouzy Champagne (375ml)

SKU #1198248 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The NV Bouzy Grand Cru Les Parcelles XIII is based on the 2013 vintage plus roughly 40% of reserve wines from 2012, 2011 and 2010. The assemblage consists of 70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay, fermented in stainless steel and in a few demi-muids. The nicely colored wine (white gold with a pink reflection due to the late harvest and no fining agents) offers a very clear, precise and delicate bouquet of cherries and red berries. Pure and filigreed on the palate, this is a beautifully pure, clear, fresh and delicate blend that reveals impressive mineral structure and length. Simply fascinating. (SR) Inner quote mark (8/2018)

91 points Decanter

Outer quote mark A very complete and harmonious example, the savoury Pinot undertow of red fruit complemented by elegant Chardonnay, with a gently beguiling creamy texture. Unpretentious and quietly persuasive. Inner quote mark (2/2017)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Bright and lithe, with a floral overtone to the flavors of Honeycrisp apple, biscuit and lemon meringue. The lively bead carries ground ginger and anise notes on the lingering, creamy finish. Disgorged March 2016. Drink now through 2022. (AN) Inner quote mark (11/2017)

K&L Notes

I am incredibly excited about the extraordinary quality of this top grower's Champagne. The name might sound familiar, as they are cousins with the negociant Bruno Paillard. But, their production is completely separate, and, unlike Bruno, all estate-grown. And what an estate they have... 28 acres exclusively in the Montagne de Reims Grand Cru top village of Bouzy. There they exclusively cultivate their own selection of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay--they do not have a single clone on the estate. Although labeled as extra-brut, and dosed quite low at 3.5g/l, this is still a rich wine from ripe, south-facing parcels in the Grand Cru of Bouzy. This wine is composed of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay with about 1/3 reserve wines. This wine has such power and presence it deserves a great pairing like lobster, but also has the elegance to enjoy as an aperitif. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)
