Paul Bara

Implanted in 1833 in Bouzy, a terroir classified Grand Cru 100%, Maison Bara has been handed down from generation to generation for over 180 years. 

Over the decades, the Champagne Bara has managed to pRéserver its artisanal character, while evolving technically to perfect its autonomy and constantly improve the quality of its production: installation of an automated press, a temperature-controlled vat room and extension of the cellar. Above all, Maison Bara works with a deep respect for the land and its environment. 

The vineyard of Paul Bara is located in Bouzy, a terroir classified 100% Grand Cru of great renown. A reputation earned thanks to the rich, highly expressive characters of its Pinot Noirs. 

The Paul Bara vineyard enjoys a full southern exposure, providing perfect conditions for grape ripening. It is among the 30 best-situated sites at Bouzy. The chalk, predominant on the Bouzy terroir, helps drain the soils of excess water and gives the grapes the necessary minerals. 

In 2021, Stéphanie Ducloux is appointed Director, when Chantal takes on the role of President. 

Both of them, through sustainable viticulture, watch over the 11 hectares of Domaine, divided into 33 parcels including 9.5 ha of Pinot Noir and 1.5 ha of Chardonnay. 

Description Paul Bara Brut Réserve.

This is a white Champagne made exclusively from Grand Cru Classé of Bouzy, one of the 17 villages thus classified at the very top of the Champagnes quality hierarchy.

This is a Champagne blend of Bouzy wines made from 80% Pinot Noir and 20% Chardonnay grape varieties. After hand-harvesting, the cuvée is aged in French oak barrels for a few months, then bottled to be lowered into deep cellars for optimal ageing.

La robe is brilliant gold. On the nose as on the palate: a broad palette of red berries such as wild strawberry or blueberry or Burlat cherry, followed by hints of citrus from lychee to candied mirabelle plum ending on lightly woody and vanilla Italian bergamot.

Wine and food pairings: Marennes-Oléron oysters, gambas or lobster flambéed with Cognac Dubosquet XO, sea bass a la plancha, white meats with truffled morel mushroom sauce.

Perfect on a citrus tart with lemon or Crete apricots or a Norwegian vanilla and dark chocolate omelette.

Champagne par excellence de cave, protected from light and trepidation, bottle laid down with optimal hygrometry of 70%. Periodic tastings to measure the qualitative evolution of this exceptional Champagne.
