Rare Millesime Brut 1998 (Magnum 1.5L)

70% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir

Released for the first time in magnum, Rare Millésime 1998 captivates as its power expresses richness and complexity before merging into delicate elegance. The weather was wet and sweltering. During a year of pouring rains, a heat wave in August burnt the grapes, nevertheless resulting in a vibrant and complex vintage.

Sparkling golden green highlights with refined, delicate bubbles. An initial and extremely elegant touch of sandalwood and cedar gives way to a more generous and precise bouquet of gingerbread, orange blossom and dried apricot. The lasting aromas are those of meringue, cocoa and licorice, finishing with a more mineral tone of underwood, camphor and bergamot orange. Between firmness and warmth, richness and complexity, its marvelous purity expresses creamy notes of peony, brown sugar and delicious aromas of gingerbread blossoming in a sheer freshness and an everlasting finish.
