We have a few cases of this Rose in half bottle format next month. It is a beautiful way to start off a meal or when you just need a few glasses and at this pricing is an exceptional buy for Rose Champagne in half bottle.
Paul Bara's Grand Rose is excellent Champagne sourced from 100% grand cru fruit from Bouzy. This is fresh and forward, with high energy and complexity that keeps one drawn in. A blend of 70% Pinot Noir, 18% Chardonnay, and 12% Bouzy Rouge made from Pinot Noir (Which they also bottle separately) it shows an abundance of pinpoint bubbles that mousse up softly on the palate with delicious red fruits of wild strawberries and raspberries. It is not overly sweet, which can sometimes be a drawback to rose Champagne. It has an underlying chalky minerality and a very precise refreshing citrus-like acidity that brings excellent balance to the party. This is a hard-to-find format for this Champagne, and these are some of the only bottles available right now. A great size for the start of a meal or a few appetizers on the weekend from one of Bouzy's top growers, and we have low pricing here today.
Antonio Galloni 91 points! " The NV Brut Grand Rosé is ethereal and nicely lifted, yet with plenty of punch to balance it all. The Bara Rosé is a bit quirky, but it has plenty of charm. I would prefer to drink this aperitif-style Rosé over the next few years, as it is a bit fleeting. Disgorged: May, 2021."
