Champagne Blanc de Blancs 2012 - Bruno Paillard
The consistency of this Blanc de Blancs 2012 champagne from the Maison Bruno Paillard is broad, round, dense and deep, very tactile. The aromas are faithful to the nose with perhaps slightly more woody spices and a very salty minerality. This cuvée is able to faithfully tell the continuous oscillation between the extreme conditions of the 2012 vintage.
For Champagne winemakers, with many conflicting and even extreme weather episodes. The mild winter ended with a cold spell that lasted nearly ten days with temperatures dropping to -20 ° C. Spring was mild with episodes of rain, then the cold returned with dramatic late frosts in some places on already budded vines. Rain, thunderstorms, hail, return of the cold, then a magnificent month of August, very dry, to the point that the September rains were eagerly awaited, the sanitary status was impeccable and, not surprisingly, the yield was rather low but the quality was outstanding.
