Concentrated and heady with a huge array of aromas and a beautifully creamy texture. Only the 11th release of this prestigious wine, and as expected, this 2008 is glorious.
70% Chardonnay , 30% Pinot Noir
Rare Champagne pays homage to the glory days of the royal court at Versailles when founder Florens-Louis Heidsieck presented his first ever ‘prestige cuvée’ to Marie Antoinette in 1785, declaring that he wanted to make a ‘cuvée worthy of a queen’. A century later a great tradition was founded when Russian Tsar Alexander III’s jeweller – a certain Pierre-Karl Fabergé – designed an opulent, bejewelled bottle for the house. The unique bottle shape is adorned with its distinctive gold casing, as a tribute to its glamorous beginnings.
Rare cuvées are only produced in outstanding years. Rare champagne millesime 2008 is only the eleventh vintage of Rare ever created, since 1976, therefore living up to its name.
