Non Vintage Pierre Paillard Sparkling Champagne Bouzy
Any way you slice it, this is a terrific value in grower Champagne. For the same price as a factory-farmed, mass-produced, over-dosed big label" wine, you can have this fine Grand Cru, handmade from 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, and given 4 years aging before release. Only 3.5 g/l residual sugar makes this so dry and bracing! The Wine Advocate loved its "great finesse and purity on the palate; it is light and mineral, so pretty, and full of tension and character with a persistent finish." "
