Nose
The fruit emerges as delicate, golden, muted exotic fruits - mango and kiwifruit - and dried fruit - hazelnut, almond and fig. A touch of iodine enhances the wine's flawless nose. The mild spices reflect the wine's depth - white pepper, smoked tea and cocoa
Palate
A wine with depth but also honed, precise, in harmony. Voluptuous delicacy with meringue notes. Subtle nuances evoke distant lands - mint tea, lime, kumquat and exotic fruits such as pineapple and candied ginger

Description

In 1976, some rather unusual weather conditions jostled the vines of champagne. It was in this particular year that the house of Piper-Heidsieck chose to create Cuvée with a special destiny, so unique it could only be called rare.

The virtuosity of the blend and acuteness of line characterized this inaugural vintage, which surprised with its finesse and purity. Ever since, every vintage has been thought to express this oenological signature in its own manner.

Rare vintage 2002 is an invitation to cross-continent travels, with a subtle complexity. Luminous, the wine has a tropical richness, with citrus fruits, grapefruit and spice, cocoa and ginger.

An authentic Rare.
