Rare Millesime 2013
Champagne, France

WEATHER: EXTREME
After a cold winter and spring punctuated by chaotic downpours, summer brought a mixture of sun, drought and thunderstorms.In September a chilly autumn exacerbated by strong winds, forced the harvest to begin late, in October.

TO THE EYE: INTENSELY BRIGHT
The effervescence of Rare Millésime 2013 is tinged with an intensely bright, light golden colour.

ON THE NOSE: FLORAL AND SPICED
The nose, at first subtle and clean, emerges in two stages combining tonicity and elegance. It all begins with the delicacy of white flowers, a hint of black tea and touches of citrus, kiwi and kumquat. Then, notes of lime blossom, green tea and fern give way to aromas of white fruits such as greengage plums.Touches of chestnut honey, sweet spices, vanilla and marzipan round off the wine’s rich bouquet.

ON THE PALATE: AROMATIC AND SMOKY
The two facets of Rare Millésime 2013 are confirmed in the mouth: smooth and vibrant, indulgent and dynamic. After hints of meringue, whipped cream and marzipan, kumquat, blood orange and kiwi then provide a refreshing tonicity.On the finish, the comforting texture of Rare Millésime 2013 appears as an aromatic and smoky indulgence punctuated by a freshness and a subtle bitterness. Rare Champagne’s iconic signature of tropic minerality is expressed differently inRare Millésime 2013, extended by a plump and prolonged aftertaste.
