Champagne – Reims
Bruno Paillard was born in Reims in 1953. His lineage of brokers and growers in the two Grands Crus villages of Bouzy and Verzenay dates back to 1704. Following in the familyâ€™s foot steps, he starts working as a broker in 1975 acquiring a deep and extensive knowledge of Champagne. But after 6 years, he is taken by the overwhelming desire to create a different Champagne: one that would go beyond what existed in terms of purity and elegance. January 1981, Bruno Paillard is 27 years old, and with nothing but his will â€“ no vineyards, no money â€“ he sells his old Jaguar that had become a collector item to provide his company with a starting capital of 50 000 francs (15 000 Euros). Bruno Paillard creates his Champagnes in a rented cellar with carefully selected grapes from independent growers. In 1984, Bruno Paillard invents the first totally â€œground levelâ€ cellar. This brand new concept allows an extremely strict control of temperatures, lighting and humidity. In 1994, Bruno Paillard purchases his first vineyard: 3 hectares in Oger, a beautiful Grand Cru of the CÃ´te des Blancs. Now, the vineyards of the house cover 32 hectares â€“ half of the production needs â€“ including 12 hectares of Grand Crus : Oger, Le Mesnil, Bouzy,Verzenay. The remaining half are today still purchased to the same independent grower families since the early 80â€™s.
