Piper-Heidsieck Rare Le Secret "Goldsmith Edition" (1.5L Magnum)
Aged for more than 20 years in his private cellar, Regis Camus, Rare Champagne Cellar Master, now shares his most unique creation: Rare Le Secret. Unlike other vintages of Rare Champagne, Rare Le Secret has no dosage, leaving it with a distinctive identity, enhanced by a second fermentation of over twenty years.
On the eye: Elegant bubbles rise in a dazzling dance of delicate effervescence.
On the nose: Rare Le Secret is defined by exceptional depth and complexity: scents of licorice, candied tropical fruits and bergamot mingle with a fragrance of dried fruit and powdered flowers. Something extraordinary for Rare Champagne then emerges: a nuance of fresh cream heightened by spices, sandalwood, and lime blossom tea. Finally, a bouquet of lychee and violets is released, guiding Rare Le Secret towards redolent scents of rum, smoked tea and incense.
On the palate: Following a crisp attack of lemon from Menton and citrus fruit, hints of fresh apricot, vetiver and verbena exude a soothing minerality. Touches of acacia honey and incense develop a smoky, exotic vinosity, almost ethereal in an infinite, structured and forceful finale. Due to the absence of sugar and to its recent disgorging, Rare Le Secret is expressive, precise and yet complex. Unforgettable.
