Paul Bara, Coteaux Champenois Grand Cru Bouzy Rouge 2008

Ruby. The nose has supple curves to it. The fruit is crunchy, black-fruited, with a little envelope of cherry tobacco smoke. The palate is satiny and tastes like morello cherries – quite an accomplishment for Coteaux Champenois! There’s a slim edge of tannin, offers a change of texture, and firms up the second half. There’s good Bouzy content as it closes. Now.
