Reviews and Ratings

Bruno Paillard NV Champagne is a bright, vibrant, extra dry Champagne fragrant with white florals, lemon zest, ripe red apple and toasty baked goods on the nose. Ultra-dry, medium-plus-bodied and elegant with a fine mousse of ripe apple, brioche, orange blossom, lemon meringue and toasty flavours finishing long, dusty and chalky on the palate. Drink or hold. - Community Wine Reviews

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a feisty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.
