Rare Rosé
2008
2007

The 2008 Rare Rosé is Piper-Heidsieck’s second ever prestige cuvée rosé. This extremely premium and rare offering has been 11 years in the making. The legendary eye of Régis Camus saw a rare opportunity in the 2008 champagne vintage, a beautifully complex and eccentric vintage. It is an audacious wine, born of intuition, vision and aspiration – the very definition of Rosé. The unpredictable growing season began with a mild, rainy winter, followed by a dreary spring, with the month of June marked by an abrupt temperature drop, marking an overall cool summer. During August a distinct change in weather gave way to a sunny, dry end of season with harvest taking place in mid-September.

Wine Notes
Color
Coppery, almost blue glints merge to give a soft hue of pink quartz. As exquisite as the petals of old roses, elegant bubbles dance in the glass.
Aroma
Offers a bouquet of spring flowers. This fragrant elegance quickly increases in complexity and texture. Notes of tangerine, lychee and verbena alternate with hints of syrupy elderberry and sweet almonds.
Taste
Following an attack that is both elegant and generous the velvety texture unfurls to offer minerality and subtlety. Initially, the exuberant vitality of dark fruits and citrus is followed by vibrancy, smoky notes of star anise and violets.

The taste of red fruit blossoms and merges into notes of aromatic, exotic herbs, pomegranate, vanilla, passion fruit and a dash of paprika to finish. A rich, full-bodied and sophisticated wine, with excellent aging potential.
