Paul Bara "Réserve" Brut Grand Cru Champagne

SKU #1106687 90 points Allen Meadows - Burghound

 (a blend of 2010 and 2011 vintages, SRP $57, disgorged December 2016, 8 g/L). There is an interesting hint of what I can only describe as talcum powder to the citrusy and yeasty green apple-scented nose. To be clear, the talcum powder character is by no means unpleasant but it’s unusual (and no, it’s definitely not from my stemware!). Otherwise the vibrant and intense flavors possess the same green apple element offered by the nose before terminating in a firm, delicious and dry finish that is dryer than the stated dosage would suggest.

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.


- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose.
