About this Item

Brut Millésime, 2012
6 (1 x 6) 750ml

Champagne Paul Bara is located in the village of Bouzy, in the Montagne de Reims region. Wines are made from 11 hectares of vineyards (from mostly Grand Cru villages) and sold under the label since the 1950’s. Current owner Chantale, daughter of Paul Bara, ensures the continued traditions passed down by her father. The wines are by hand with low-yielding vines and good maturity ensured by prolonged bottle ageing. A close connection to the vineyard environment and biodiversity has always been a priority.

Sustainable practices
The aim is to promote sustainable viticulture that respects the environment, to ensure the production of healthy and high quality grapes and above all to use natural regulatory mechanisms. To promote long-term soil balance and reduce water, soil and air pollution. Limit use of herbicides and insecticides. Recovery of wastewater and rainwater in the cellar, upgrading water systems. Preservation of the biodiversity surrounding the property. Promote harmony in the vineyard to protect the ecosystem.

These bottles were disgorged in April 2018.

Critics Ratings

‘Light to medium intensity nose with a lovely profile of warm dough, fruit, nuts, and whipped cream. Full, vibrant, and very refreshing palate with excellent tactile grip. Very good length to the aftertaste and it is just beautiful and clean overall.’ - Cellartracker.com, 93/100 (Jun 2019)
