eRobertParker.com #203 Nov 2012 - The NV Brut Rose Premier Cuvee is another pure delight. Pale in color, Paillardâs 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.
