Champagne Pierre Paillard’s history dates back 8 generations to 1768 in the Grand Cru village of Bouzy. The family’s domaine is now under the control of brothers Antoine and Quentin who represent the fourth generation to produce and bottle the wines under their family name. Their vineyards are divided into 28 parcels spread over 11 hectares on the prestigious Bouzy terroir. While Bouzy is known as a pinot noir village, 40 percent of their vines are chardonnay. The process at Pierre Paillard is slow and without formula as secondary fermentation occurs sur-lattes in their cave, 16 meters below ground for anywhere between 3 to 10 years. Dosage is kept low as the family believes their wines to be of nice balance after extended aging in bottle on the lees.
