Pierre Paillard is a small grower with eleven hectares of vines, all located in Grand Cru Bouzy. They are unique in the area because of their high percentage of Chardonnay in an area known for Pinot Noir (40% Chardonnay/60% Pinot Noir). The winery has been in the family for eight generations and they have been bottling under the Pierre Paillard name for four generations. They farm sustainably and use spontaneous yeast fermentations. They never stop malo on their wines; the freshness comes from the fruit. The wines benefit from extended aging on the lees, and the bottled wines are aged in the cellar for up to an additional 10 years for certain cuvées.
