The Champagne Bruno Paillard Maison arose from the desire of a man to create pure champagnes very different from the others. Bruno Paillard, descendant of a family of financial brokers and vignerons in Champagne for more than three centuries, created his own Maison in 1981. His requirement: to obtain the quintessence of each Champagne grand cru to then create, with blends, a great wine. The results are cuvées for connoisseurs among the most recognized at international level, distributed exclusively in selected wine shops and on the tables of the best chefs. Daily work is carried out on the 34.2 hectares of vineyards, divided between 17 crus, which today supply more than half of the grapes needed by the Maison. Each one of the 106 parcels is worked – soil and organic treatment – in a way that favors biodiversity and the deep development of the roots. This makes it possible to extract the typical and extraordinary chalkiness of the land. The best grapes are only crushed once before being vinified. In the winery, the must remain on yeasts for a long time, from two to five years longer than normal, according to the type of cuvée. All the wines produced are Extra Brut, the disgorging date is always written on the back label, and the style is recognized as a blend of purity, complexity and minerality. Today the Maison Bruno Paillard is totally independent and managed by Bruno Paillard’s daughter Alice, who continues the original project.
