The 2008 Brut Cuvée Rare, now re-baptized as "Rare Champagne," continues to evolve at a glacial pace. Offering up aromas of citrus oil, freshly baked bread and wet stones, it's medium to full-bodied, taut and incisive, with a tangy spine of acidity and a pretty pinpoint mousse, but much in the way of texture or amplitude has yet to emerge . While I continue to think that this has the makings of a very attractive bottling, continued patience is advised.

About this wine


Champagne is produced mainly from three grape varieties: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier. Each of these contributes to the complexity and flavor palette of the finished wine. The vineyards of Champagne are surrounded by historic vineyards that often have deep roots in centuries-old winemaking tradition. Champagne wine is produced in accordance with strict rules and standards defined by the French AOC (Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée) system. This ensures that only wine from this specific area can carry the prestigious label "Champagne". From the iconic Dom Pérignon to more accessible brands, Champagne represents a symbol of celebration and elegance worldwide. Often used to mark special events and highlights in life, its popularity continues to grow as a global icon of sparkling wine.
