Paul Bara "Annonciade" Champagne 2005
70% Pinot Noir and 30% Chardonnay. The Annonciade bottling pays homage to an ancestor of the Bara family. In 1833, Annonciade, the daughter of a winemaker from Bouzy, married Auguste François Bara, a young cooper from a neighbouring village. Paul Bara Annonciade is aged for 6 months in barrel and then 10 years on lees in bottle. the 2005 vintage was disgorged in November 2016, and given an Extra Brut dosage of 5g/l. A stunning Champagne of great power and complexity.
