A sparkling pale gold color, with green hues. To the nose, a first vegetal and floral impression - honeysuckle, iris, jasmine - complex, though subtle. Notes of vetiver and exotic woods, followed by hints of pepper, and spices such as ginger, cumin and liquorice. The aromas reveal themselves gradually, with fragrances of herbal teas, mint tea, verbena, enhanced by incense. On the palate, a radiant and refined, elegant wine. Tonic, feather-like but rich and dense. Impressions of warm and dry desert plains. A long, delicate finale on notes such as chocolate and tobacco. A veil, lifted by a refreshing breeze in the desert.

Aromas and flavors of toasted brioche and grilled nut enrich the yellow plum, nectarine and grated ginger notes of this rich and creamy Champagne. Finely woven and beautifully integrated, with a firm backbone of mouthwatering acidity providing precise balance for the lush range of flavor. Drink now through 2029.

The 2006 Brut Cuvée Rare is a rich, gourmand rendition of this prestige bottling, unfurling in the glass with a complex bouquet that mingles aromas of yellow orchard fruit, pears and fresh pineapple with nuances of buttered toast, iodine and smoke. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, broad and textural, while remaining fresh and surprisingly tight-knit at the core, concluding with a long and saline finish. There's sufficient structural tension here to promise more than a decade's graceful evolution, and although this is nicely balanced, it's a generous, sun kissed rendition of the Cuvée Rare that reflects the warm vintage. The blend is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir.
