Same base wines as Reserve Brut with the addition of 12% Bouzy rouge and a Brut dosage of 8g/l.
'A multi vintage blend of 18% Chardonnay, 70% Pinot Noir and 12% Bouzy rouge. The latter is the still red wine of the village Bouzy (famous for its Pinot Noir) and from which this wine takes its colour. Salmon pink appearance, so appealing to the eye. With lacy aromas of blood orange, with a touch of orange zest and red currants, the palate is bursting with small red berry fruits, the red currants again, both combining with rose hip notes throughout a medium length finish. Pair this with gravalax (sugar-cured salmon) on arrival and continue on with salmon fillet main if you like.

'Paul Bara’s Grand Rosé is a beautifully made bottle that really shows the high caliber pinot noir that hails from the village of Bouzy. The wine is fairly dark for a Rosé, with a lovely deep salmon color, and offers up a simply stunning bouquet of blood orange, cherries, sourdough bread, complex minerality, gentle smoky notes and a nice touch of citrus peel in the upper register. Stylistically, this is very similar to Dom Perignon Rosé. Simply a great bottle.

20% chardonnay, 80% pinot noir; Bouzy; 12% Bouzy rouge vinified in stainless steel; 7g/L dosage
A beautiful rosé that shines with the bright intensity of Bouzy pinot noir and the crystalline definition of salt minerality zapped with tangy malic acidity. A dose of 12% Bouzy rouge lends but a hint of pink to its delicate, pretty, bright straw hue. It’s a wonderful expression of the character of Bouzy translated with detail and finesse, filled with strawberry and cranberry fruits and fragranced with rose petals of lifted, lively character. Fine tannin structure melds with salt minerality to provide grip and structure in unison with tangy and persistent malic acidity. It’s thrillingly primary and enticingly moreish, with just subtle allusions of ginger-cake spice beginning to appear on a long finish.
