Enjoyed this, a rich style of Champagne from Bruno Paillard. This was released later than most of its peers, after spending 10 years on the lees, and has a relatively low dosage of 5 g/litre. The label this year was designed by French artist Jean Paul Agosti, and it sort of captures the flavour of the wine in a synaesthetic way. Retail in the UK is around £75, so it is tilting at the top.
Champagne Bruno Paillard Blanc de Blancs 2002
12% alcohol. Toasty, rich and creamy with sweet white peach and pear fruit on the bold nose. The palate is rich and dense with lovely bold peach and pear fruit. Great concentration and depth of fruit here: rich, dense and alluring. 93/100
