Première Cuvée Extra Brut
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.
EYE The golden straw colour reveals a high presence of chardonnay and the exclusive use of the first pressing. The fine bubbles are due to a strict selection of the best grapes, perfectly controlled temperature in the cellar and very long ageing.
NOSE The primary aromas reveal the citrus fruits of Chardonnay: lime and grapefruit.
Then the red fruits aromas of Pinot Noir appear: redcurrant, raspberry, morello cherries. When left to open up in the glass, the wine shows hints of dried fruits, sometimes exotic, from Pinot Meunier.
PALATE Lively and vivacious, thanks to a low dosage, the aromas on the nose are echoed in the mouth. Primary flavours of citrus, almonds, and toasted bread, very soon joined by redcurrant jelly but also dark fruits like cherry, fig and blackberry.
