THE BRUNO PAILLARD STYLE, A VERY PERSONAL STYLE

Maison BRUNO PAILLARD sprang from its founder’s desire to create a champagne different from any other; extremely pure.

A great champagne for BRUNO PAILLARD is  above all  an “assemblage”, blending: of diverse crus, grape varieties and vintages. It is about the constant desire to capture the quintessential finesse and elegance which champagne can bring when it is served with love and care.

The BRUNO PAILLARD style is a marriage of elegance and complexity which is manifested as a light and smooth effervescence, a remarkable purity, a true freshness and a silky texture.

The effervescence has to be delicate. The bubbles are very tiny, almost microscopic, yet they are what release the wine’s aromas and give it a smooth and creamy texture on the palate.

The colour has to be completely natural. It is bright: green gold for Blanc de Blancs, golden for Première Cuvée and copper for Rosé. The colour of the vintages becomes deeper, and almost amber after several decades.

The aromas have to be extremely pure: nuances of citrus fruits and almonds from Chardonnay; red fruits from Pinot Noir; and exotic fruits from Pinot Meunier. By using only the first pressing of the grapes, we ensure that the purest aromas are extracted.

The freshness has to be perceptible but not overwhelming. It is enhanced by the acidity of the wine, yet the wine is not acidic in taste. Only a minimum of extra sugar is added (“dosage”) to enhance this remarkable freshness.

Complexity must not be confused with heaviness; rather, it is more about elegance. The balance and the depth of the wines are what gives them their purity. Complexity only reveals itself to those who take time to discover, emerging as the wines age.

THE BRUNO PAILLARD STYLE, STRONG COMMITMENTS

Respect for the terroir

Preserving the inimitable chalky minerality of Champagne terroir, is a priority of the Maison. Great care is taken in the BRUNO PAILLARD vineyards, to work sustainably and express this specificity.

Respect for Quality

The pursuit of excellence at Bruno Paillard is manifested at every step of the winemaking. The quality charter has been created through simple criterias which are strictly adhered to:
• Selection of the highest quality grapes: each year, a part of the grapes grands crus or not are downgraded.
• Use of the first pressing only: Juice from the second pressing is systematically declassified.
• Separate vinifications: each “cru” is vinified separately in tank or barrel to allow a precise selection during the blends.
• Addition of “Reserve Wines”: for the multi-vintages Champagnes; incorporating “Reserve Wines” gives consistency to the house style. Depending upon the characteristics of the year, the amount which is added varies from 25% to 50%.
• Ageing two to four times longer than the legal minimum in Champagne… it can reach 15 years for the N.P.U. -“Nec Plus Ultra” (five times what is imposed for a single vintage!)
• Dosage is always “Extra Brut” (extremely low), respecting the purity of the wines.
• The wine rests in the cellar after disgorgement, typically for 5 to 18 months, depending on the vintage.

Champagne – respecting our region

“We must serve the Champagne appellation, not use it.”

Faithful to this saying and a lover of the Champagne region, Bruno Paillard is committed to defend the region and takes active role in shaping it.

Elected in 2001 to manage the “commission on defense of the appellation” department of the C.I.V.C (Comité Interprofessionnel des Vins de Champagne) he works on the respect of the Champagne Appellation in the world. He has also been an elected administrator of Union des Maisons de Champagne since 1989.

He also heads the quality commission on the “Champagne 2030 project”.
