Rare Rose Millesime 2008


Rare Rose Millesime 2008
Champagne, France

The Piper-Heidsieck ‘Rare’ Vintage Brut is only made in the very best of years – and have to be considered perfect for what Regis Camus calls “an extraordinary cuvee”. The wine is matured for over seven years in their cellars before being dressed and ready for release.

A blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir. Notes of tangerine, lychee and verbena alternate with hints of syrupy elderberry, of sweet almonds. Freshly picked dark crisp fruit (blackcurrant, blueberry, lingonberry), the nose is generous, heralding a vintage with exceptional potential. The velvety texture unfurls to offer minerality and subtlety. Initially, the exuberant vitality of dark fruits and of citrus is followed by the vibrancy, smoky notes and aromas of star anise and violets. Then the triumphant delicacy expresses a hint of vanilla.
