Founded in 1981, Bruno Paillard is a mid-sized Champagne house and holds the distinction of being the youngest in the Champagne region. Paillard had been working as a grape broker with his father when, at 27, he sold his Jaguar and used the capital to kick start his own winery. Today the house is managed by his daughter Alice and the estate now owns 32 hectares of vineyards, 12 of which are grand crus. The grapes for their wines are all farmed sustainably and Paillard's distinct method uses low dosage to create an extra dry style that is focused on purity, minerality, and aging potential.
