Time offers energy and strength to Rare Millésime 1988, 1998, 1999, 2002, 2006 and Rare Rosé 2007 and 2008. And will continue to do so for a long time…

Their infinite minerality is the fame of Rare Champagne. Like his predecessors, Régis Camus the most awarded Cellar Master of the century*, succeeds in transforming Rare Champagne into a wine of patience with an unlimited potential for expression. Time is no longer an obstacle but a benefit which emphasizes the personality of each vintage.

*Régis Camus, awarded 8 times "Champagne and Sparkling Winemaker of the Year" by the International Wine Challenge Jury since the beginning of the century.

Rating: 93+ Points by Robert Parker

Tasting Note: "The newly released 2008 Brut Cuvée Rare is very promising, unwinding in the glass with a youthfully reserved nose of citrus oil, crisp green apple, freshly baked bread, iodine and oyster shell, as well as some rather herbaceous characteristics that depress my score a little, even if I suspect that they will resolve with a bit more bottle age. Medium to full-bodied, incisive and tightly wound, if the 2006 vintage was gourmand and demonstrative, the 2008 is slower to show all its cards. Built around racy acids and complemented by a pillowy mousse, this rendition of Cuvée Rare will reward a few years more on cork."

時至今日,白雪香檳早已成為名副其實的「時尚派對製造者」,在明星雲集的盛會,如頒獎典禮、時裝秀和電影首映等場合,都可以看到白雪香檳的踪影。好萊塢女影星瑪麗蓮•夢露就曾說過:「我穿的是香奈兒5號(Chanel No.5),我喝的是白雪香檳。」

白雪香檳(Piper-Heidsieck)是世界三大香檳品牌之一,白雪香檳酒莊于1785年7月16日由弗洛倫斯•路易斯•海瑟克(Florens- Louis Heidsieck)在蘭斯城(Reims)創建。當時弗洛倫斯•路易斯•海瑟克已經是一名專業釀酒師,曾為瑪麗皇后(Marie Antoinette)貢獻過一瓶自己釀造的葡萄酒。白雪香檳的產地蘭斯城是香檳區的經濟首府,也是法國的歷史重鎮,素有「王者之城」的美譽。自11世紀 起,每一任法國國王都必須到這個「加冕之都」受冕登基。 1828年,白雪香檳酒莊的創建人去世,酒莊由他的侄女克里斯蒂安•海瑟克(Christian Heidsieck)和表弟亨利(Henri Guilaume Piper)接管。 1838年,里斯蒂安•海瑟克嫁給了亨利(Henri Guilaume Piper),於是酒莊在1839年10月改名為「Piper-Heidsieck(白雪香檳酒莊)」。 20世紀80年代後期,白雪香檳酒莊成為一個葡萄 酒和烈酒集團的一部分,2011年又被EPI (Europeenne de Participation Industrielle)——一個私人控股的法國奢侈品牌收購。
