Rare Millesime

Rare Champagne is indeed rare; in forty years, Rare Champagne has only declared eleven vintages. Always released as a limited series, this transcendental small batch Champagne should be the star of the show. Enjoy as an aperitif or pair with fried mushrooms with lemon, or endive salad with citrus dressing.

Rare Champagne: Limited Series Excellence

Always released as a limited series, each Rare Champagne vintage gathers three essential factors: a truly extraordinary year, the expertise of the Cellar Master and unique cellaring in optimal conditions. Revealed is the distinctive character and endless longevity of this exceptional champagne. Over the last forty years, Rare Champagne has only declared eleven vintages, with the most demanding standards in Champagne, all in limited production.

Rare Millésime 2013: Unique Expression

Rare Millésime 2013 expresses the house’s signature - blending minerality with a tropical twist - in two stages. Despite its initially reserved appearance, this vintage unfurls delicious notes of pastries and spices in a saline tension that is both noble and full-bodied.

Tasting
NOTES

Gorgeous, transcending and inviting nose. Complex layers of white and meadow flowers, ripe fresh pineapple adds to the concentration. Excellent mousse integration which is both delicate and persistent. The delicacy of the wine and its vinous style is really enticing. Great acidity integration, well balanced with perfectly judged ripe tropical notes. Long and beautiful finish.

Food
PAIRINGS

This wine, and its price, would place this as something that should be the star of the show. Its stylish, polished character means it should be placed close to the beginning of the meal, if not the first wine poured. Pair with fried mushrooms with lemon, or an endive salad with a citrus dressing, or also a crudo with habanada sweet chilli peppers and a vinegar and pickling liquid sauce.
