Winemaker’s Notes

In a subtle, joyful effervescence, the intense crystalline golden robe evokes yellow diamonds. The initial nose shines by the pure vivacity of this vintage. As Rare Millésime 2008 gradually warms in the glass, a vast range of orange blossom, hyacinth and white flowers is released. This leads to the delicacy of vanilla blossoms, a touch of fresh coconut, aromas of just ripe Williams pear and fresh almond, enhanced by notes of tangerine and blackcurrant buds. The second nose reveals the saline minerality, abundant and refined, an iodine-smoky harmony and a touch of liquorice. On the palate the crispy, precise attack is followed by exuberant aromas of fresh pineapple, freshly cut and crisp, passion fruit, kiwi and coconut.

Pair with Oysters, ginger, lemon Lobster roasted in pieces, white Soisson beans, Tonka cream Lamb fillet with citrus crust, zucchini flower, candied eggplant and garden peas.

Like a stallion out of the gate this shows an initial explosion of power in the form of mouthwatering flavors and fine texture before quickly settling into an elegant gait. The racy acidity is seamlessly knit buoying the lacy mousse and flavors of cassis toasted brioche and tangerine with accents of candied ginger hazelnut and fleur de sel lingering on the long creamy finish.
