2012 Bruno Paillard 'Assemblage' Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Champagne
The Premiere Cuvee champagne is an excellent aperitif. It matches divinely with cheese (Brie de Meaux, Camembert, aged salers), poultry and shellfish.
Blend: 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 22% Pinot Meunier
Wine Enthusiast - "A bright, dry Champagne, this is well balanced, freshly textured and packed with tight, mineral acidity. This relatively young bottling will be best from 2022."
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate - "The 2012 Extra-Brut Assemblage Millésimé is excellent, offering up aromas of sweet orchard fruit, honeycomb, buttered toast, lemon pith and white flowers. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and enveloping, it's elegantly muscular and concentrated, with racy acids and a long, saline finish. It was disgorged in March 2020."
