To celebrate the launch of our fabulous new website, we are offering one lucky reader the chance to win an exclusive MAGNUM of Rare Champagne 1998.
The origin of Rare Champagne was confirmed on May 6th, 1885, for the centenary of the celebration of the presentation of the first bottle of the prestigious cuvée of Piper Heidsieck to Queen Marie Antoinette.
For the landmark occasion, Pierre Karl Fabergé, the jeweller of Czar Alexandre III, was commissioned to create a unique, and distinctive precious bottle in gold, diamonds, and lapis lazuli.
One Hundred years later, with a design inspired by the original 1885 bottle, Van Cleef Arpels the renowned Parisian jeweller, created an extraordinary high-jewellery anniversary bottle for Rare Champagne Millésime 1976.
The legendary wine-maker Régis Camus, who became the cellar master for Piper Heidsieck in 2002, has been awarded the title of Sparkling Winemaker of the Year eight times by the International Wine Challenge as well as being awarded a Lifetime Achievement Award during the Champagne & Sparkling Wine World Championships. After retiring as cellar-master for Piper Heidsieck in 2012, he made it his mission to create Rare as a unique and separate brand from Piper.
In 2018, the decision was taken to reveal to the world Rare Champagne as a stand-alone brand; as the jewel of champagne.
The incomparable Rare Champagne expertise defies the usual rules governing the terroir selection, blending, storage and design. Carefully preserved in its bottle bearing a golden tiara, symbolising the allegory of the triumphant vine, Rare Champagne is internationally renowned for its unique blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir as well as for its infinite freshness and purity.
Rare Champagne now belongs to the top five prestige cuvées worldwide.
Since 1976, Rare Champagne has only declared the most demanding in Champagne, all in limited series. Each vintage celebrates a year in which nature is tamed and exalted by the Cellar Master’s expertise and by the work of time.
