3 PACK, 1500ml BOTTLES, $299.99 EACH
Exclusively made of Chardonnay grapes, this wine is also known as “the Lace of Champagne” because of its very fine and persistent white mousse. First pressing Chardonnay, sourced exclusively from grands crus vineyards “Côte des Blancs”. This wine is made from 25 vintages, going back to 1985. It is aged for four years sur lie, then ten months further ageing after disgorgement. The delicacy of the bubbles helps to tame the naturally mineral Grands Crus to offer a sensation that is both creamy and lively. A very old winemaking method is used where fermentation in the bottle is less powerful than traditional champagne.

Disgorged in June 2018, Bruno Paillard's NV Extra-Brut Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru is based on the 2013 vintage. Youthfully tightly wound, even after two years on cork, it unfurls in the glass with notes of crisp yellow orchard fruit, elderflowers, honeycomb and warm shortbread. Medium to full-bodied, chiseled and incisive, it's racy and concentrated, with tangy acids, a refined mousse and a long, electric finish. Produced from 36 parcels in Oger and Mesnil-sur-Oger, this is an utterly classic Blanc de Blancs built for long aging.
