Pierre Paillard Les Parcelles XVIII NV Bouzy Grand Cru
On the label, XVIII refers to the 2018 vintage, on which this wine is based, with fruit coming from 22 plots giving 70% pinot and 30% chardonnay. This has ample time on the lees, around four years, delivering a bold, rich, powerful wine with a notably dry palate thanks to a scant 1-2 grams of dosage. Expect cherries, honeycomb and toast with a refreshing savoury nutty character. Superb stuff.
