Champagne Pierre Paillard, "Les Mottelettes" Blanc de Blancs Bouzy Grand Cru, Champagne AOC is a rare and unique expression of the Chardonnay variety grown in Buzi. The vineyard "Les Mottelettes" was defeated in 1961 in the mountains of Reims. Under a thin layer of soil lies a half-meter layer of pure chalk. It is from here that saplings are taken to update other vineyards. An amazing combination of traditional varietal characteristics of Chardonnay, features of terroir and long aging endow it with uniqueness and unique charm.
Grapes are harvested at full maturity, squeezed and vinified in stainless steel containers using only the juice of the first spin. After alcoholic and malolactic fermentation, the wine is aged on the sediment for 8 months before bottling. In basements at a depth of 16 meters at a constant temperature of 10 ° C, champagne slowly passes through secondary fermentation for 2 months and ripens for another 5 years, acquiring a balance and elegance.

Thanks to such a philosophy, they succeed in amazingly accurately demonstrating the subtlety and magnificence of Buzi's stunning terroir.
