Rare Millesime 2006 is immediately delectable, both tropical and fresh, mature and warm. It's almost paradoxical mineral and opulent tautness, it shows substantial potential for expression. 

 

TO THE EYE: IRIDESCENT GREEN GOLD

Bearing witness to a sun-filled year, Rare Millesime 2006 glows with an iridescent yellow-green gold. Delicate, dynamic bubbles glisten in this flaxen brilliance.

 

ON THE NOSE: TROPICAL AND DISTINGUISHED

Rare Millesime 2006 first offers a generous honeyed and oriental nose. The fragrances of crisp mango, cocoa, coffee, tropical fruits, lend the vintage a sophisticated vitality. The scent of jasmine tea paves the way for a gradually emerging minerality. Aromas of dried apricot and pink peony foreshadow a slightly vegetal structure, where vanilla, yellow kiwi and tropical spices bloom.

 

ON THE PALATE: INFINITELY RICH AND INVITING

In the exceptionally long finish hints of mocha and cocoa confirm the fine Rare Millesime 2006 minerality. Dried apricots, sweet spices, citron lime, accents of crisp honeyed pastries and Espelette pepper envelop the palate with an tropical and smoky warmth. Testifying to its solar generosity, this depth underscores the wine's taut freshness and foreshadows a magnificent longevity.
