Bruno Paillard Brut Millésime Assemblage 1999

Cuvee: Vintage
Vintage: 1999
Bruno Paillard's Assemblage was produced exclusively from the first pressing – the purest – of a selection of grapes from 14 crus in the Marne. Nine years ageing in their cellar allowed this wine to develop a balance between floral and ripe fruit aromas. Produced in small quantities, it is available in 75cl bottles, magnums and jeroboams.

The blend
29% Chardonnay, 42% Pinot Noir and 29% Pinot Meunier. Dosage: 6 g/l

Tasting notes
Eye: Deep gold colour animated by a very vivacious and fine effervescence

Nose: Aromas of ripe fruit to the fore, dominated by citrus notes. Then hints of red fruits (raspberries/cherries) gently appear, and after a few minutes in the glass notes of honey develop and enhance the personality of this wine

The first impression combines freshness and length. Fruit and spicy notes are well balanced, offering a "gourmand" impression. Freshness, ampleness, and length characterise this 1999 vintage
