Pierre Baillette Premier Cru Extra Brut 'Le Village' NV

Pierre Baillette
About Pierre Baillette

Périne, Pierre’s daughter, runs this small domaine where everything is done by hand or horse (which are shared with her husband and well-known vigneron Alexandre Chartogne of Chartogne-Taillet). She produces miniscule quantities (circa 10,000-15,000 bottles per year) of delicious, elegant, and bright terroir-focused Champagne.

Just to the south of Reims, this small domaine cultivates vineyards in three premier cru and grand cru villages in the Montagne de Reims – Trois Puits, Rilly-la-Montagne, and Verzenay. The three main Champagne grape varieties – Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Meunier – are all grown. No herbicides or pesticides are sprayed in the vineyards and draft horses are used to plough in order to reduce soil compaction.

In the cellar the wines are fermented with indigenous yeasts, spend time in large oak barrels before bottling, and age on their lees for 3-6 years. The wines see little dosage and a solera is used to age the reserve wines.

Pierre Baillette has received little press outside of France, but the Bulles Roses was recently featured on the cover of Noble Rot, so the secret is finally out. We suggest you snap up a bottle while you can!

Jason at Vinified Wine has broadened my wine-drinking horizons! It’s been fantastic having an expert who can guide me to discover new favourites, as well as source hard-to-find bottles I’ve tried and loved elsewhere, and delight us every time a new case arrives. Vinified Wine provides incredible value and quality for every taste and every budget. Thank you Jason!

Jason is insanely talented at what he does. His extensive travel throughout Europe and beyond to find the best, organic and often small wine producers mean you get access to bottles which you would never otherwise have discovered. He isn’t just skilled at picking out outstanding wine. He is passionate about listening to people and what they like and then really trying to find something he thinks matches their taste (and budget.) That is what sets him apart. Getting a delivery from Vinified is a real treat.
