The NV Brut Authentique Rosé is the most complete and satisfying of the three wines I tasted. Powerful and ample in the glass, the Rosé is wonderfully fleshy, and yet all nothing is out of place. To be sure, the Authentique is an overt, vinous Rosé but the house style seems to work especially well in this wine. Disgorged: December 18, 2017. Rating: 91 Antonio Galloni, 2018)

Relatively deeply colored in the context of the genre. The nose is mildly fruity yet there is ample yeast and despite the overt fruitiness the aromas are by no means simple or one-dimensional. Consistent with the color there is good richness, volume and mid-palate density to the delicious and rather round flavors that are shaped by a medium firm mousse, all wrapped in an off-dry finish that possesses solid if not better depth. Overall I liked this just fine but if I'm being hyper-critical, I would prefer a slightly drier and crisper finish; that said this is well-made and satisfying in its fashion.

Barnaut NV Brut Rosé Grand Cru Authentique Vin de Gastronomie is soft and gracious, almost surprisingly so given the richness of the other wines in the lineup. Sweet floral and spice overtones add perfume to the expressive red berry fruit. Rating: 91 Antonio Galloni, 2017)

Champagne Barnaut

When Edmond Barnaut married in 1874, he created this marque with his own and his wife's vineyards. Since 1985 the fifth generation has been in charge with Philippe Secondé making well-aged Champagnes (five years average for the Grande Réserve) which are very representative of the full-bodied style of Bouzy - the excellent Pinot Noir of the village's Grand Cru Vineyards providing the backbone (2/3) of the Grande Réserve and all of the Blanc de Noirs.
