Wine of the Week: Paul Bara Brut Millésime 2000

One of the finest grower estates in the Montagne de Reims, Paul Bara is well-known both in France and abroad, having been exported to the United States by Kermit Lynch since 1975. Today Paul’s daughter Chantale Bara is in charge of the 11-hectare domaine, whose vineyard holdings are entirely in the grand cru village of Bouzy.

Bara’s vintage wine is typically composed of 90 percent pinot noir and ten percent chardonnay, and the 2000 seems to exemplify the best of what this vintage has to offer. It’s broad and rich, with a honeyed generosity, yet it doesn’t lose focus or precision, tethered by a fine structure and a firm but not aggressive acidity. It’s just beginning to develop some notes of nut oils and toast on the finish, while the fruit remains strongly primary in tone, and although this is showing perfectly well right now, it should continue to develop more complexity with additional time in the cellar.

Is it possible that previous vintages where ranging from 100% pinot noir to a 80-20 composition?
I would love to know what other pinot dominated houses you would recommend. Paul Dethune is also one of my favorites.
