Rare

It was Florens-Louis Heidsieck, originally from Westphalia, who founded the Champagne Heidsieck et Cie cloth and wine trading house in 1785 in Reims. He even had the privilege of presenting his wine to the French Queen Marie-Antoinette.

When Florens-Louis Heidsieck died in 1828, his nephew Christian Heidsieck took over the business in partnership with Henri-Guillaume Piper. The company grew rapidly, but in 1835 Christian Heidsieck died, and his wife remarried Henri-Guillaume Piper, who gave his name to the company, now Piper-Heidsieck.

Description Rare Rosé 2012.

It is a champagne of virtuoso elaborated as a symphony by blending wines from vineyards planted Grands and Premiers Crus planted in chardonnay grape variety mainly for 70% and Pinot Noir grape variety for 30%.

This is a brut champagne exclusively from the 2012 harvest, a vintage recognized as a great year of exception thanks to optimal climatic conditions during the budding and flowering followed by harvesting on very sunny days, after an exceptional ripening of the berries.

The color is pink, partridge-eyed, with shy blue reflections.

Nose: the first attack is very white spring flowers such as lime blossom, hawthorn, mixed, in the second perception, with small red fruit scents such as burlat cherry, mara des bois, white raspberry and lychee flesh on a final scented with spices, vanilla and roasted hazelnuts.

The palate: is of a majestic amplitude underlining the perfumes of small red fruits with a light finish on ginger, turmeric, white pepper with elegant touches of white flowers. The finish of Rare Rosé Millésime 2012 offers a wide and very balanced palette of rare olfactory and gustatory sensations.

Food and wine pairing: serve between 10-12°C with medallions of lobster or blue lobster from the Iroise Sea or the Channel Islands, Jersey and Guernsey.

Also perfect with a fresh tomato consommé flavored with basil. Very elegant as a dessert: with a red fruit nage flavored with spices accompanied by speculoos.

Bottles laid down to be kept in a cellar protected from light and noise with a hygrometric degree of about 70%.

We suggest successive tastings in order to measure its olfactory and gustatory evolution until its qualitative asymptote.
