From: Bouzy, Montagne des Reims, Champagne, France
Varietals: 80% Pinot Noir, 20% Chardonnay
Tasting Notes: "Disgorged in July 2021 with one gram per liter dosage, Paillard's NV Extra-Brut Bouzy Grand Cru Les Parcelles XVII is based on the 2017 vintage. Offering up aromas of lemon oil, nectarine, freshly baked bread and hints of honeycomb, it's medium to full-bodied, deep and vinous, with a layered core of fruit, racy acids and a saline, bone-dry finish. Complemented by an elegant pinpoint mousse, this is a classy, impeccably balanced wine that transcends the challenging vintage." –Wine Advocate, 92 points (Jan 2022)
Pairing: I have a secret love for peanut butter and jelly sandwiches with champagne’s like this (Pinot Noir dominant champagne) & recommend to try the pairing if you’re up for it. In the case that you’re not, champagne’s such as this are fantastic with mushroom and fried chicken dishes. So, for today’s pairing, we’re sharing a one-pot combination of the two in Mark Bittman’s recipe for Creamy One-Pot Pasta with Chicken and Mushrooms. This recipe will yield 4 servings, and takes about 45 minutes to make.
