The Cote des Bar is a large district located in the departement of the Aube, to the southeast of the main Champagne region of the Marne. A region of gently rolling terrain, it’s a touch warmer than the Marne, although it’s less centered on a major river system.
Aube wines are typically made primarily from Pinot Noir, with some Chardonnay and relatively little Meunier planted.
The Aube produces some 25% of Champagne’s grapes, and most growers in the district sell their fruit to the Grands Marques houses based in Reims and Epernay.
