    The 2008 vintage : After a mild and wet winter, a dull spring, a cool and rainy summer, the weather became sunny and dry until the harvest.
    To the eye

    The intense crystalline golden robe evokes yellow diamonds enhanced by a subtle, joyful effervescence.

    On the nose

    The first nose shines with the sheer vivacity of this vintage. As the Rare Vintage 2008 gradually warms up in the glass, a wide range of orange blossom, hyacinth and white flowers emerge. The second nose reveals abundant and refined saline minerality and a touch of liquorice.

    In the mouth

    On the palate, the crisp, precise attack is followed by exuberant aromas of freshly cut, crisp pineapple, passion fruit, kiwi and coconut, with hints of tart citrus. These combine with lush, spring-like flavours of unparalleled length. The finish, with its remarkable saline and iodine notes, continues the journey into endless spring.

    Food & champagne pairings

    Rare Vintage 2008 perfectly gos with oysters, ginger, lemon grilled sole, mint sabayon, preserved sweet peppers milk chocolate, mango and passion fruit.

    Ideal operating temperature

    To appreciate all its finesse and aromas, champagne should be enjoyed chilled (but not iced). Depending on the cuvée, the ideal serving temperature is between 8 and 12°C.

    Potential of keeping

    Perfect until 2036, then unforgettable
