94pts Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

 The NV Bouzy Grand Cru Rosé Les Terres Roses XIII is a blended rosé based on the 2013 vintage (70%), completed with 2012 and 2011 plus 4% of red wine. The wine has a super pale pink color, one of the brightest I have ever seen in Champagne. The bouquet is very clear, pure, fresh and highly delicate, even with citrus flavors. Light yet intense and persistent on the palate, this is a fascinating rosé that could be enjoyed as a lovely, delicate Extra-Brut with clear focus and straight character. This is an exciting Champagne of great elegance, finesse and expression. Disgorged in July 2017 with three grams of dosage. Drink through 2033. 

92pts Decanter

This gloriously fruity rosé has an abundance of juicy cranberry and raspberry on the palate, joined by a zesty grapefruit acidity and peppery spice. It manages to retain a well structured character, making this a delicious Champagne to drink on its own as well as with food. 

91pts Wine Spectator

This mouthwatering rosé is firm and toasty, with a spiced thread of flavor unraveling through notes of wild cherry, candied ginger, graphite and citrus. Lively, offering a creamy, lingering finish.

Winemaker Notes

The nose encompasses bright acidic flavors of both black raspberries and fresh ginger. This wine is soft on the palette with a citrus mineral finish. This sparkling rosé is light and intensely delicate.  Blend of 65% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir, and 5% Bouzy Rouge.

 

The Paillard family has been in the village of Bouzy for eight generations dating back to the late 18th century. Today, Antoine and Quentin Paillard head up the estate with vineyards located entirely in the Bouzy Grand Cru appellation. With a focus on farming responsibly, the Paillard vineyards are propagated with no clones resulting in low yields and fruit that achieves the perfect balance.
