Rare Champagne 2002

A heat wave like on never seen before struck France in the summer of 1976. Could it be possible to produce a cuvee worthy of the Maison under such conditions? After all, such an extraordinary event could produce an extraordinary cuvee. Thanks to their expertise and creativity, several men skilled in the art of winemaking transcended the disaster and tamed the unbridled natural forces that year to produce a cuvee of exquisite purity.

It is known as Rare, in tribute to the events behind its creation. Since then, the Rare years where Nature unleashes its forces, a new cuvee is born.

Rare 2002 is a blend of 8 crus including Oger, Villers-Marmery and Avize for the Chardonnays and Verzy for the Pinot Noirs. A 2002 vintage synonymous with richness and generosity matured for over 8 years in the House’s cellars. 70% Chardonnay – 30% Pinot Noir
