THE MULTI-TROPHY WINNER
The Rare Millésime 2006 was awarded 97 points and a gold medal from the 2019 International Wine Challenge.
70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir
COLOR: Bearing witness to a sun-filled year, Rare Millésime 2006 glows with an iridescent yellow-green gold. Delicate, dynamic bubbles glisten in this flaxen brilliance.
NOSE: Rare Millésime 2006 first offers a generous honeyed and oriental nose. The fragrances of crisp mango, cocoa, coffee, tropical fruits, lend the vintage a sophisticated vitality. The scent of jasmine tea paves the way for a gradually emerging minerality. Aromas of dried apricot and pink peony foreshadow a slightly vegetal structure, where vanilla, yellow kiwi and Oriental spices bloom.
PALATE: In the exceptionally long finish hints of mocha and cocoa confirm the fine Rare Millésime 2006 minerality. Dried apricots, sweet spices, citron lime, accents of crisp honeyed pastries and Espelette pepper envelop the palate with an Oriental and smoky warmth. Testifying to its solar generosity, this depth underscores the wineʼs taut freshness and foreshadows a magnificent longevity.
