What the Critics say
The 2006 Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut (Disgorged September 2015) has a golden-yellow color and opens with an intensely fruity bouquet that is rich but also pure and complex, with peach, ripe banana and whole grain flavors as well as emerging iodine notes. This is a round, rich, mouth-filling and voluptuous yet elegant and mineral Chardonnay with fine tannins and lingering salinity with biscuit flavors. Kept more than eight years on the lees in bottle, this is a terribly fresh and stunningly fine Champagne that is a great pleasure to drink drink today due to its delicacy and freshness. However, you can also keep it in a cool, dark cellar for at least two decades.

An amazing wine made exclusively from the pure juice of the first pressings. A powerful and delicate wine made soley from Chardonnay. The wine spends an incredible 9 years in the cool cellars of Bruno Paillard and is given a very low dosage before release of just 5g/L.
