The Tasting

Rare Millésime 2006 radiates an iridescent yellow-green gold and harmonious, dynamic bubbles.

On the nose, Rare Millésime 2006 is enveloping, honeyed, oriental. Mango, white chocolate, cocoa, coffee and tropical fruit aromas offer a racy complexity. Notes of jasmine tea, aromas of dried apricot, pink peony precede a light vegetal structure, on which vanilla, yellow kiwi and oriental spices bloom.

In an exceptional length, mocha and cocoa support the minerality. Dried apricots, citron, lime coat the palate with an oriental and smoky warmth. On the finish, accents of crispy honeyed pastries and espelette pepper underline the wine's taut freshness and beautiful longevity.

The Composition

Assemblage Champagne Rare


Montagne de Reims

Rare Champagne breaks the codes by choosing chardonnays from the Montagne de Reims, essentially known for pinot noir, which bring an incredible precise minerality.

It also gives preference to Pinot Noirs from the Montagne de Reims, rich with a velvety intensity and a pure and silky texture.

About this house

For the centenary of the presentation of the first Piper-Heidsieck prestige cuvée to Queen Marie-Antoinette, a limited series of bottles was published in 1885: the cuvée du centenaire. Pierre-Karl Fabergé, the jeweler of Tsar Alexander III, designed the spectacular enamel decoration.

Unfortunately, the techniques of the time did not allow to execute it, the glass of the bottles being too fragile. A label faithfully reproducing the design was then affixed to the bottles of this exclusive edition. This centenary vintage prefigures Rare Champagne.
