Located in Bouzy just to the east of Epernay in the Marne Valley, Champagne Paul Bara uses only their own estate grown fruit from 100% Grand cru rated vineyards to craft it’s small range of champagnes.
Same base wines as above with the addition of 12% Bouzy rouge and approximately 8 grams/litre of dosage.
A multi vintage blend of 18% Chardonnay, 70% Pinot Noir and 12% Bouzy rouge. The latter is the still red wine of the village Bouzy (famous for its Pinot Noir) and from which this wine takes its colour. Salmon pink appearance, so appealing to the eye. With lacy aromas of blood orange, with a touch of orange zest and red currants, the palate is bursting with small red berry fruits, the red currants again, both combining with rose hip notes throughout a medium length finish. Pair this with gravalax (sugar-cured salmon) on arrival and continue on with salmon fillet main if you like. Date Tasted; Feb 2018; Frank Wilden; Business Insider Australia
Paul Bara’s Grand Rosé is a beautifully made bottle that really shows the high caliber pinot noir that hails from the village of Bouzy. The wine is fairly dark for a Rosé, with a lovely deep salmon color, and offers up a simply stunning bouquet of blood orange, cherries, sourdough bread, complex minerality, gentle smoky notes and a nice touch of citrus peel in the upper register. Stylistically, this is very similar to Dom Perignon Rosé. Simply a great bottle. Rating: 94 Points; John Gilman; View From The Cellar.
