Bruno Paillard has acquired the René Jardin estate covering 21 hectares and generating between 200,000 and 250,000 bottles a year.

Prior to this purchase, the Rheins-based Champagne house has only been able to cover 5% of its grape requirements. This will now increase to 35% and allow Paillard to raise annual production to between 700,000 and 750,000 bottles.

Paillard, set up in 1981, specialises solely in special vintage and top of the range Champagne. It exports 75% of its production.

Reflecting tradition, producers only own around 10% of the 32,000 hectares of land devoted to AOC champagne production, the vast majority of estates being in the hands of growers.
