Dating back to a tribute to Marie-Antoinette, Rare Champagne is gifted by an independent spirit and a true charisma.
Over the last forty years, Rare Champagne has only declared eleven vintages, the most demanding in Champagne, all in limited production.
Rare Champagne is released in Millésimes 1976, 1979, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2002, 2006, Rare Rosé Millésime 2007, 2008 and Rare Rosé Millésime 2008. Blossoming year after year, Rare Champagne expresses an elegant style: endless freshness, long-lasting minerality, with a radiant purity and subtle contrasts.
Rare Champagne transcends habits and conventions to reveal an unrivalled champagne. The Cellar Master, Regis Camus, creates each Rare Champagne vintage to reflect an exceptional year that magnifies nature itself. Above all, he seeks to achieve an emblematic silky texture and an endless freshness for Rare Champagne.
Regis Camus selects the vineyards according to their expression rather than their rank in the scale of Premiers and Grands Crus. He thinks outside the box, choosing Chardonnay grapes from the Montagne de Reims, famous especially for Pinot Noir, giving an incredible and precise minerality. He also prefers the Pinot Noir grapes from the Montagne de Reims for their sheer intensity and powerful silky texture.
This uncommon blending approach contributes to the complex, distinguished, and yet pure style of Rare Champagne.
