The youngest rendition of Première Cuvée that I tasted on my visit to the maison in late March is comprised of twenty percent barrel-fermented base wines this year and carries a dosage of six grams per liter. The wine is young, but very promising and shows a nice influence from its pinot meunier constituent in its complex bouquet of apple, tart orange, a very complex base of soil tones, meunier-induced, gentle floral tones, warm bread and a dollop of smokiness. On the palate the wine is deep, full-bodied, crisp and nascently complex, with excellent mid-palate intensity, elegant mousse, excellent focus and a very long, well-balanced and primary finish. This is going to be excellent (and is already very tasty), but I would be strongly inclined to give it a couple of years, as there are layers of complexity still to unlock with bottle age (as the subsequent examples so graphically illustrated). 2014-2040+.

A mouthwatering Champagne that's finely balanced and carries rich notes of Honeycrisp apple, toast, lemon curd and glazed apricot on the lively mousse, while a streak of chalky mineral lingers on the finish.

Paillard's NV Première Cuvée, disgorged January 2018 as Extra Brut, offers a fresh and delicate nose with bright fruit aromas intermixed with delicious brioche and vanilla notes. After three years on the lees, the palate is pure, straight and fresh, with a lovely mineral background, great elegance and finesse. The finish is salty and remans pure, very stimulating and delicate. Highly stimulating. - Stephan Reinhardt

Very fresh, attractive and fresh lemons with gently creamy nuances, as well as lightly toasted bread. The palate has a sleek, fresh lemon and lime core with a sheen of nutty, bready complexity. Plenty here to like. Drink now.

Taut and sharply focused, with very good clarity and a refreshing mineral bite on the back half. Quite tensile but not at all hard-edged. Closes tangy and long, with lingering orange pith and white pepper qualities. -- Josh Raynolds
