Description

The Grand Cru La Grande Récolte 2012 is tense, sophisticated and very complex.

The 2008 Bouzy Grand Cru La Grande Récolte is a blend of 55% Pinot Noir and 45% Chardonnay from the heralded 2008 vintage. It is a great vintage for Champagne and represents the highest level of complexity that a Grand Cru Champagne can offer. The bottles were matured in the Paillard’s deep cellar at 10 degrees for 10 years. This long period is necessary in achieving the Paillard’s distinct style. The Grand Cru Vintage of 2008 has a very low dosage of 1.8gr/l, allowing the Champagne to express itself fully.

A vintage Champagne is the ultimate Champagne in expressing richness and complexity. It is undoubtedly the perfect companion Champagne to match with decadent food including scallops, foie gras and lobster. The colour is gold and the palate offers refined aromas of red berries, blood orange and chalky minerality. The bubbles are thin, creamy and sensuous. Drink now. Extra Brut – 1.8 grams per litre of dosage.
