Champagne Paul Bara Grand Rosé Brut NV

Champagne, FrancePaul Bara was founded in Bouzy in 1833, and the 6th generation, Chantale Bara, is now overseeing the 11 hectares of the Montagne de Reims estate. This Grand Cru Rosé blends 80% pinot noir, 20% chardonnay, and 12% red wine from Bouzy, with vines averaging 35 years. The wine was fermented in stainless (partial MLF) and aged for four years on lees. My bottle was disgorged July 2022. Grilled strawberry, perfumed cherry is seasoned with light toast and crushed stones on a softly cushy palate, all subtly strung with a pink grapefruit tension that lingers on the citrus finish. A welcoming and friendly rosé that is ready to partner with poultry or lightly spiced Chinese dishes now.Tasted: 21 March 2023Tasted by: Prices:
