December 200991 The NV Brut Grand Cru Reserve is a wonderfully elegant wine graced with layers of perfumed fruit that come to life on a mid-weight frame. The wine shows terrific balance and tons of Bouzy character, with a long, and refined finish that invites a second taste. This bottle was disgorged in June, 2009 although that is not indicated on the label. The NV Brut Grand Cru Reserve is a gem from Bara. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2014. Unfortunately this year I was only able to taste one wine from Paul Bara, one of Champagne’s undisputed leaders in quality.

December 201190 (80% pinot noir and 20% chardonnay, all from Bouzy): Light yellow-gold. Mineral-accented aromas of pear and peach pit, with smoke and floral qualities adding complexity. Sappy, penetrating redcurrant and orchard fruit flavors are lifted by zesty minerality and pick up smokiness with air. Finishes sappy and long, with lingering floral and mineral qualities.
