rare champagne 2008

Rare Champagne, Millésime 2008

RRP £164

Beautifully detailed nose, with a fresh, fruity profile of pineapple, coconut, vanilla and coffee meeting liquorice and roasted almonds. The fruitiness is pure and ripe yet crunchy. On the palate, it is tightly knit and driven, with a crisp acidity perfectly bound to the radiant fruitiness. The lacy texture shows tension, the wine building to a palate-cleaning fresh, salty tang. A really refined vintage of Rare, with majestic longevity ahead.
