Champagne Rare Overview
Rare was formally known as Piper-Heidsieck Rare but going forward, Rare will be a stand alone brand. Rare is a truly unique prestige cuvée. In the summer of 1976, an unprecedented heatwave struck France, the likes of which the Champagne region had never experienced before. Piper-Heidsieck's winemaking team began to wonder: could it be possible to create a cuvée given the remarkable conditions? Taming the natural forces was no easy task and when assemblage was complete and the final blend bottled, the team were so proud of the final product, they called it Rare. A testament to exceptional vintages where nature unleashes its forces, Rare cuvées are only produced in supernatural years. Rare Le Secret - In 1997, Rare Champagne Cellar Master, Régis Camus, decided not to declare a vintage and instead blended a small quantity of Rare 1997 champagne in magnums only, and aged them secretly in his private cellar.

Weather: 1997 began with a harsh winter, with plenty of frost and cold snaps. The spring had average temperatures and July was really hot. August heat led to a September without a drop of rain.
