There is amazing delicacy and finesse in this rose Champagne that offers delicate flavors of rose petals, cherry, toast and hazelnut. Lovely purity as well as depth and a very long finish.

The NV Extra Brut Rosé Premiere Cuvée is terrific. Deceptively pale in colour, Bruno Paillard's Rosé is all class. Bright and persistent on the palate, the Rosé is laced with expressive cranberry, white pepper, mint and floral undertones. Everything about the Rosé speaks to balance and harmony. Disgorged: February 2017.

"Very complex with orange-peel and apricot character and spiced dried strawberries. Medium body, bright acidity and a long and flavorful finish. Shows drive and intensity. Very nice texture. Drink now."

Located 150 km east of Paris, Champagne is the French wine region renowned for producing the finest, most rich and complex sparkling wines in the world. The elegance, longevity and racy acidity of these wines are attributed to the influence of the chalky soils of the region and the cool, marginal continental climate. The region spans an area of 35,000 ha and has 4 main growing areas, each favouring one of the three noble Champagne varieties; Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. Champagne has a vineyard quality hierarchy based on the soils, aspect and overall quality of the grapes. Like Burgundy, these quality designations are allocated to the vineyards of the village. Of the 319 villages of Champagne, 17 have Grand Cru status and 44 villages are designated Premier Cru. All Champagne is produced by Traditional Method. The vast majority of Champagne is a blend of the three varieties and may also be a blend of several vintages producing the popular Non Vintage (NV) house styles. Top quality blends from exceptional years are sold as Vintage (Millésime) Champagne.
