Winemaker's Notes:

Rare vintage 1988 first reveals its generous amplitude - a powerful and elegant wine, of great finesse. A sophisticated, warm wine, incredibly pure.

Rare is a blend chiefly of Chardonnay, completed with Pinot Noir. The Chardonnay comes from the Montagne de Reims, which is renowned mainly for its Pinot Noir. Its most striking characteristic is its unusual expression of minerality.
