Pierre Paillard, Brut Blanc de Noirs Grand Cru Acte 1 ‘Les Maillerettes’ Bouzy (2008)

Pierre Paillard Blanc de Noirs 2008

A .8 acre grand cru parcel, lieux-dit ‘Les Maillerettes’, planted in 1970.  100% Pinot Noir from vintage 2008.  Disgorged April 2013.  Dosage: 5 g/l.

Straw-gold.  Composed and vinous, his layered dark red fruit etched by a pronounced chalkiness.  First-rate aromatic detail.  Sleek, galvanic ’08 structure.  Repeating notes of aniseed calls for some patience.  Will still improve.  Now – 2025.
