Authentique Rosé Brut Grand Cru Champagne Barnaut NV

Grapes Pinot Noir
Colour Rosé
Origin France, Champagne
Classification Grand Cru
ABV 12.5%

Saignée from Bouzy grand cru.
Bumptious and brazen with a saucy little sneer of Campari-like bitters. I like the little tug of bitter orange, wormwood, rose hip and hot white pepper with a slick of strawberry syrup. Rambunctious fun. Solid. Proper barbecue champagne! You could easily pair this with smoky chipotle-marinaded ribs.

85% Pinot Noir from Bouzy, 15% Chardonnay. Hand-picked grapes. Berry maceration in tanks for one to three days – the colour comes from red-berry maceration rather than blending white wine with red wine. Sur lattes for five years. Dosage 6 g/l. 15,000 bottles.
Deep colour. Wild strawberries, juicy, great texture – like crumpled tissue paper dusted with spice. Inherently vinous rather than 'pink champagne'. Lots of fruit, but layering cooked fruit with fresh fruit interpolated with a long, deep tang. A substantial rosé for people who love interesting food and flavours. GV

Lovely intensity of ripe red fruit, cherries and bitter orange, spice, mocha, bit like a negroni, delicious.L&S (Mar 2024)

A slightly fuller bodied, but really easy drinking Rosé, with notes of fresh wild strawberries and a delicate finish.L&S

Champagne Barnaut

Edmond Barnaut was a grape-grower and wine-broker when in 1873 he married the daughter of an old Bouzy family, Apolline Godmé-Barancourt. Using his own and his wife's vineyards he created his own marque and began selling bottles the following year. Philippe and Laurette Secondé took over in 1985, and they have now been joined by their son Guillaume Secondé, the 5th generation of the Barnaut family. After 150 harvests, Guillaume's return to the domaine, gradually taking his spot as "future chef" for the 6th generation.

The Secondés make 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. As Philippe puts it 'I want to express our exceptional terroir, naturally and simply, without artifice and without giving in to fashions.'.

The domaine is certified for High Environmental Value (HVE) and Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne (VDC).
