Bara's 2006 Brut Grand Cru Comtesse Marie de France, 100% Pinot Noir, is superb. Ample and creamy on the palate, with terrific freshness and overall intensity, the 2006 is incredibly expressive today. Hints of lemon confit, chamomile, dried herbs, yellow orchard fruit and dried flowers all grace this exquisite, inviting Champagne. The 2006 has enough pedigree and class to drink well for another decade or more. I loved it. Disgorged: March, 2018. Dosage is 8 grams per liter.
