Coming from an area that is well recognised for the very high quality of its Pinot Noir one would expect that the Rose champagne would perform quite strongly as indeed it does. This champagne has the addition of up to 12% of Bouzy red wine to add to its fresh vibrant rose colour and to give an extra dimension of fine fresh red fruits to the delicate perfume. Dosage for all cuvees here is in the range of 7-8 g/l.
‘… marvellous, precise, impeccably well presented Champagnes that are at the top of the qualitative pyramid.’ Robert Parker, The Wine Advocate.
“Paul Bara is a living legend in Champagne. Many major champagne houses have approached Bara to try and buy the 30 exceptional locations he controls in the village. Only the first pressing is used, the wines are aged for at least 4 years in the cold cellar, and the yield is maintained at the lowest possible level. Bara’s wines have a very elegant fruitiness, which is unique in Bouzy. …his champagne is world class.”
