Forty years on since Maison Bruno Paillard was founded, its Première Cuvée Extra Brut remains the flagship of the portfolio. A Multi Vintage Champagne, the Première Cuvée Extra Brut is a very personal interpretation of the region. Above all, it is a blend of vineyards, varieties and of vintages.
It is a blend of the three Champagne varieties: Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier. A total of 20% of the blend is fermented in barrel, with up to 50% of reserve wines in the blend. After three years maturation on the lees, and an extra low dosage, this is complex, and intensely elegant Champagne, with a precise, long finish.

Their Foss Marai winery is powered by solar panels, their processes favour a slow hands-on approach over the rush of machinery, and their wines are not fined with animal products, making them vegan friendly.
