Rare Champagne Rosé Millésime 2008 Gift Boxed

The Rare Champagne Rosé Millésime 2008 is only the second vintage of Rosé produced by Rare. Bold and sensual, Rare Rosé's minerality pays tribute to the pure fresh style of Rare Champagne. Rare Rosé 2008 marries 70% Chardonnay grapes, selected mainly from the Montagne de Reims region and 30% Pinot Noir (some as red wine) in a blend of eight crus. The wine was kept on its lees for 9 years before disgorgement, when a dosage of around 8.5g/l was added. The Champagne is crystal clear with a radiant, pale copper colour. The first aromas to emerge are redcurrant, almond and spring flowers, followed by more pronounced notes of lychee, pink grapefruit and sweet spice. Delicate, vibrant and expressive, Rare Rosé 2008 showcases all that is great about the vintage, resulting in a champagne of great length, complexity and longevity.
