Rare Rosé 2007: 95 Points in Wine Spectator
The Wine Spector’s latest Insider report includes PIPER-HEIDSIECK’s Rare Rosé as a “Hot Wine” — and the first-ever edition of this special wine is the highest scoring rosé Champagne of the 2007 vintage, with 95 points.
Here’s the review from Alison Napjus, the magazine’s lead taster for Champagne:
Brut Rosé Champagne Rare 2007
Toasted brioche and ripe blackberry notes leap from the glass in this lovely rosé Champagne. Glides like raw silk on the palate, with a deftly woven mix of dried white cherry, spun honey, baking spice and blood orange zest flavors. Long and persistent on the vibrant finish, showing more fruit and a rich pastry character. Drink now through 2027. From France.—A.N.
