'The 2002 Brut Assemblage is initially quite awkward, but then blossoms beautifully with air. It is rare to find a Champagne like this one, where the aromas and flavors are so beautifully defined, yet also so marvelously integrated. Sweet red berries, citrus, flowers and spices are given a little extra volume and breadth by oak in this gorgeous, broad-shouldered Champagne. Each time I come back to the wine, there is a new shade of nuance to discover. The finish is trademark Bruno Paillard, which is to say pure class. The 2002 is 47% Pinot Noir, 42% Chardonnay and 11% Pinot Meunier. Disgorgement date: July 2011. Drink: 2013-2022'

In 1981, Bruno Paillard is 27 years old, and with nothing but his will, he created his Champagnes in a rented cellar with carefully selected grapes from independent growers. Today, Bruno Paillard’s vineyards cover 32 hectares (79,5 acres) of land over the best Crus of Champagne. Respect of this fantastic terroir through sustainable viticulture is a priority of the house. Bruno Paillard style is the marriage of elegance and complexity which translates into a light and smooth effervescence, a remarkable purity, a true freshness and a silky texture.
