Bruno Paillard


Bruno Paillard, Blanc de Blanc Reserve Privée Grand Cru, Champagne, France NV
Eventing and jumping make up two-thirds of the Olympics equestrian disciplines, but dressage requires an altogether different skill, namely grooming, precision, elegance and not a hair out of place. There’s nothing out of place on the elegantly groomed Bruno Paillard, and the same applies to his Blanc de Blancs Reserve Privée Grand Cru Champagne. This is a thoroughbred: toasty, pure Chardonnay with fine bead, a lively, textured, rich mousse and refreshingly dry, mineral aftertaste. An elegant Champagne dressed in the finest of liveries. 18.5pts/20 (95/100)
