Wine Summary Image

Piper-Heidsieck’s Rare is a champagne that lives up to its name. This Cuvée de Prestige is produced in very

limited quantities and in very select vintages. Rare Millesime 2006 is a luxurious, classical Cuvée – structured,

full-bodied and bursting with fruit. This wine is a blend of 17 crus which matured for at least seven years in the

House’s cellars. The 2006 vintage described in one word: sunny. Following a cold winter with abundant

snowfall succeeded by spring thunderstorms, the summer brought suffocating heat. In August, the

temperatures cooled and heavy rains threatened the grapes’ maturity. In September, the heat thankfully came

back to encourage the harvest.

Winery Tasting Notes

Color: Glows with an iridescent yellow-green gold. Delicate, dynamic bubbles glisten in this flaxen brilliance.

Aroma: Offers a generous honeyed and oriental nose. The fragrances of crisp mango, cocoa, coffee, tropical fruits, lend the vintage a sophisticated vitality.

Taste: In the exceptionally long finish hints of mocha and cocoa confirm the fine Rare Millesime 2006’s minerality. Dried apricots, sweet spices, citron lime, accents of crisp honeyed pastries and Espelette pepper envelop the palate with an oriental and smoky warmth.

Winery Profile

Florent-Louis Heidsieck founded this eponymous Champagne House in 1785. His wines gain immediate recognition and in May of the same year, he is said to have presented his already legendary wine to Queen Marie-Antoinette at Versailles.

In 2011, the House works with close to two hundred growers, spread out over the whole of the Champagne area. Regis Camus, winemaker, and his team, refer to a certain number of “House criteria”, established over time and enriched by their own experiences. They follow the evolution of the plant throughout the year and leading up to harvest. They select the grapes that have reached optimal maturity, in the parts they judge best and in a great number of different crus, to allow them to compose an original blend, rich in its nuances. Piper-Heidsieck vinifies the musts separately, varietal by varietal, cru by cru. This is the only way to preserve and respect the typicity of the origins.

The wines of Pipe- Heidsieck are radiant and crisp. Over the last 220 years, the spirit of the House had evolved without really changing.

The Piper-Heidsieck wines have charm and drive, but also structure and precision. They are easy to approach, in all earnestness, as they give a subtle impression of Sophisticated simplicity. And every time one tastes them, on-rediscovers that “small touch” in the flavours that seduces in a inimitable way.
