Wine tasting notes

A delicate elegant copper-pink Champagne with subtle Pinot Noir redcurrant and cherry fruit, balanced by some creamy citrussy Chardonnay - all of which is carried by a soft refined mousse.

Winery information

Bruno Paillard

Bruno Paillard was born in Reims in 1953 into an established family of Champagne "vignerons" and brokers. He started his own brokerage in 1975 and founded his own Champagne house in 1981. In fact, it is the youngest prestige house to be created since World War II. Bruno Paillard is synonymous with quality. One hundred and twenty five acres of Grand Cru and Premier Cru vineyards provide the exceptional Pinot Noir, Pinot Munier and Pinot Chardonnay grapes which are used in the production of three luxury cuvees and one vintage Champagne.

Each wine is produced in the traditional method and under the personal supervision of Bruno Paillard at his striking, state-of-the-art glass and stainless steel facility just outside Reims. Using only the first pressing of the grapes, Mr. Paillard is able to achieve the purest fruit flavors which then develop extraordinary balance during extended aging in the cellars.

The Champagnes are all made with the dosage kept as low as possible in order to respect the authenticity of the wines. As a final note of quality, every bottle carries its date of "degorgement". Bruno Paillard is the only Champagne house to do so. The Champagnes of Bruno Paillard are rich, complex and dry but above all, elegant.

Expert reviews

Wine Advocate/Robert Parker (NV) - 91 pts

eRobertParker.com #203 Nov 2012 - The NV Brut Rose Premier Cuvee is another pure delight. Pale in color, Paillard’s Rose is all about minerality, drive and tension. This mid-weight, gracious Champagne literally dances on the palate with its exceptional grace. It is neither too delicate nor overly rich, but just beautifully balanced and harmonious from start to finish. The Rose turns more vinous with time in the glass, but it is an extremely versatile wine that can be enjoyed as an aperitif or with food.


Vinous/Antonio Galloni (NV) - 91 pts

The pale-colored NV Rosé Premiere Cuvée is all about delicacy. Floral and ethereal nuances dominate in a decidedly light-bodied rosé that is best enjoyed as an aperitif. The Rosé is well done, but it could also offer a little more mid-palate depth. Pretty floral and red-toned berries are laced into the finish.-- Antonio Galloni


JancisRobinson.com (NV) - 16.5 pts

Tasted June '13 - Mostly Pinot Noir with a touch of Chardonnay. Three years on lees and dosage 6 g/l. Delicate, dry, fragrant, almost dried rose petals. Nose quite closed. More like a white wine, with earth and depth. (TC)


Wine Enthusiast (NV) - 90 pts

With the lightest color, this has great fruitiness and the freshest of acidity while showing no sign of maturing. Red berry flavors are dominant along with a character that makes this as much wine as Champagne. On the dry side of Brut, it needs food. R.V.(12/1/2014)


Jamie Goode (NV) - 92 pts

This is 20% of production, although only 8% of Champagne sold globally is rosé. Pale colour. Very fine, pure and fresh, with subtle cherry and strawberry fruit, and nice acidity. Lovely finesse and purity, which Bruno says can only be achieved by assemblage, not saignee.

Vinification notes

Only the first pressing of the grapes used. Then blended with a proportion of red wine giving colour & older reserve wines to make the final blend. Second fermentation in bottle and a very low dosage.
