Pierre is cousins with the negociant Bruno Paillard if the name seems familiar. Unlike Bruno who sources to procure, Pierre’s production is completely all estate-grown from 28 south-facing acres exclusively in the Montagne de Reims Grand Cru top village of Bouzy. Pierre exclusively cultivates his own selection of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay (no single clones on the estate). The dosage is very low at just 3.5g/l, but the wine is still ripe, rich and powerful from the warmer southern exposure. Composed of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay with about 1/3 reserve wines from the last 3 to 4 vintages. One of our top NV finds simply over delivers!
