Sandy Wasserman CS @SandyWasserman: Good morning Quentin @Pierre_Paillard What do you like to drink when not drinking your wines #sommchat

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @SandyWasserman #sommchat I like to drink wines that showcase where they are from, that have a personality

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @Pierre_Paillard Quentin, How did you decide to go into your family #Champagne biz and how old were you? #SommChat

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat I decided to come back to the winery after working as a sommelier in #nyc, back in 2010

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll I was 27 years and worked in Bouzy with my brother Antoine for 3 years

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: q fr #SommChat #SOmm @Pierre_Paillard What dof yoiu think bmakes Pierre Paillard #Champagne unique? #SommChat

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat we craft 5 Champagnes and 2 Coteaux Champenois (white and red) from Bouzy only...

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat ... a rare thing in Champagne where the blending of villages and grapes is the norm.

Adam Plotkin @AdamPlotkin: @Pierre_Paillard @keepercoll So, all of your wines are single vineyard? #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @Pierre_Paillard Quentin, what makes Rose #Champagnes typically more expensive ? is it method of making or aging or ???

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat as a grower, we supply Pinot Noir used for our Rosé from a specific plot, here a pinot fin from #bourgogne...

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll ...making qualitative champagne rosé require top quality juice from vine that yields low & grown on top terroir #bouzy #ambonnay

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @Pierre_Paillard Quentin when did the single vineyard designation #Champagnes begin and why? How many do you make? #Sommchat

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #sommchat we craft a Blanc de Noirs every year since 2007. Sourced from a plot of old vine Pinot Noir "Les Maillerettes"...

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #sommchat Les Maillerettes is the mother plot for most our family’s vineyard which has been propagated, via sélection massale

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm what are your major #US markets and where would you like to go into? who is your distributor for @Pierre_Paillard

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #sommchat I'd say #CA is our first market, followed by #ny #Chicago #DC @RobertHoudeWine @DNSWines @PotomacWine

Charles Comm PR @CharlesComm: Q @Pierre_Paillard What is your most popular #champagne for U.S consumers? #SommChat @keepercoll

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @CharlesComm @keepercoll #sommchat our Cuvée "Les Parcelles" blend of 22 plots from Bouzy is our most popular in the US. it was previously..

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @CharlesComm @keepercoll #Sommchat it was previously labelled "Brut Grand Cru, new label indicate the base wine on the front it's extra-brut

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr shy #SommChat peep: @Pierre_Paillard which of UR #Champagnes do U prefer > as Aperitif and which ones > with food?

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #sommechat Les Parcelles and Terres Rose for aperitif, singles vineyards #maillerettes #mottelettes for food.

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @CharlesComm great to see you on #SommChat today always enjoy talking #Champagne

Adam Plotkin @AdamPlotkin: Wazzzzzzzup, chatters de somm??????? #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: .@AdamPlotkin yeahhhhh to see you on #SommChat figured you would want to chime in on #Champagne - have you had @Pierre_Paillard ?

Adam Plotkin @AdamPlotkin: @keepercoll @Pierre_Paillard I have not, but will certainly be on the lookout for some bottles given what I am reading thus far! #SommChat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: .@AdamPlotkin we love @Pierre_Paillard #Champagne wonder if @brzimmerman gets in any? just got some from #Flatiron #wines in #SF #Sommchat

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @Pierre_Paillard Quentin, How is the #Champagne industry different than the #wine industry? #SommChat

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #sommchat #champagne #aoc is 200km long from north to south and negotiant blend villages from all over...

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat you would not imagine people from #cornas blending with #chateauneufdupape..

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat grower are going against this statement by making wines of terroir expressing singles villages or vineyards

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @Pierre_Paillard What would you pair with your Coteaux Champenois Bouzy Rouge? #SommChat

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #sommchat #BouzyRouge can be served with roasted meats, farm poultry and water game, at a temperature of 14-15°C.

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @Pierre_Paillard Tell us about your #Champagne vinification process? #SommChat

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #sommchat Although the base wines have historically been fermented in stainless steel...

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat we are now vinifying some of the wines with

terracotta vessels, oak barrels and a concrete egg

Stephanie Miskew CSW @StephanieMiskew: @Pierre_Paillard @keepercoll What quality do you feel the concrete egg brings to the wine? #Sommchat #Champagne #WineWednesday

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @StephanieMiskew @keepercoll #Sommchat It gives the wines more texture and depth.

Adam Plotkin @AdamPlotkin: @StephanieMiskew Gives it a nice cement-like mouthfeel! ;-)

Stephanie Miskew CSW @StephanieMiskew: @AdamPlotkin #Lol I just LOVE that in a Champagne!

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: welcome back @StephanieMiskew to #SommChat qreat question have you tried @Pierre_Paillard #Champagne

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm how was @Pierre_Paillard affected by recent vintage weather issues - did it reduce production and if so by how much?

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat we lost about 50% of our production in 2016, we sprayed for the first time since 2011 or we would have lost a lot more

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm Can you tell us abt 2016 vintage for @Pierre_Paillard ?

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm @Pierre_Paillard How do you ensure high #quality in your #Champagne production?

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat We believe than great wine starts in the vineyard. We are working actively to

protect & invigorate our soil by using..

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat our own organic compost or by spraying with diverse teas of natural origins. our goal is to conserve the....

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat micro-organisms in the soil along with beneficial insects. In that sense we never use herbicide or insecticide.

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat we only use selection massales, vinify each plot separately and keep wines on lees for at least 4 years.

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: Q fr #SommChat #Somm what did you spray with

to save crop in 2016 @Pierre_Paillard ?

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat we used one time a non toxic molecules that are not considered organic because synthetic. Systemic vs contact (copper)

Charles Comm PR @CharlesComm: Q @Pierre_Paillard What are ways you keep your #winery sustainable? #SommChat @keepercoll

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @CharlesComm @keepercoll #Sommchat we never use herbicide or insecticide, no use of clones, natural cold stabilization for the wines...

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @CharlesComm @keepercoll #Sommchat also currently experimenting with natural yeast

KeeperCollection @keepercoll: @Pierre_Paillard What role does Antoine play N winery & who else besides 2 of you have a major role - what gen are the 2 of you? #SommChat

Paillard Brothers @Pierre_Paillard: @keepercoll #Sommchat Antoine and I are 8th generations, Antoine takes care of the vineyards in Bouzy..
