2008 Piper Heidsieck Rare Champagne...$199.99
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. Drink now through 2035.
Rated 97/100 The Wine Spectator
Rare Champagne is produced only in very limited quantities with only eleven vintages declared over the past forty years of production. (Dom Perignon is made almost every year now)
