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.
