About this Champagne:
"Comtesse Marie de France," was created by Paul Bara on behalf of a French restaurateur. Today, the restaurant is closed, but the brand is technically still theirs. Because of this, Champagne Paul Bara is required to add MA “Marque d'Acheteur” to their label as opposed to RM (Récoltant Manipulant). In this case, MA is not in conflict with RM as this cuvée is made with estate fruit and by Champagne Paul Bara.

100% Pinot Noir produced only in the very best years for Pinot Noir with a total production about 500 dozen bottles. This comes from one of their oldest vineyards around 55 years old which is located mid-slope giving perfect roundness and balance. Aged for nine years on lees and finished with a Brut dosage of 8g/l.

Ratings & Reviews

95 Points - Vinous Media:
"The 2012 Comtesse Marie de France is wonderfully exuberant from the very first taste. Kirsch, lemon confit, white flowers, chalk and mint all grace this exquisite, translucent Champagne. The purity of the flavors is just striking, as is the wine's overall balance. It's all precision and class here." - Antonio Galloni (May 2022)
