Champagne Barnaut Bouzy Rouge Millésime Caisse de 3 Bouteilles 2002

Member Review by PSeconde:

This wine is not made every year by any means. Philippe insists on making it only in the warmest years so as to achieve the quality he is looking for. The wine is macerated for an exceptionally long period, as much as 10 days , to produce a wine that is complete, well-structured and ready to age. In the mouth ripe red fruits such as raspberries and blackcurrants come to the fore And there’s also a slightly woody touch despite no oak being used during production. Still red wine is made in quite a few villages in Champagne but none has quite the reputation of the red wine from Bouzy and in Bouzy Barnaut’s Bouzy Rouge ranks amongst the best. To really enjoy this Bouzy Rouge at its best you can do no better than to drink it with full flavoured foods such as charcuterie and game, although it’s also delightful with a selection of red fruits
