Rare Champagne lives up to its name.
Champagne legend Régis Camus is the Chef de Cave, whose meticulous winemaking has made him Sparkling Winemaker of the Year at the IWC eight times.
Rare Champagne pays homage to the glory days of the royal court at Versailles when founder Florens-Louis Heidsieck presented his first ever 'prestige cuvée' to Marie Antoinette in 1785, declaring that he wanted to make a 'cuvée worthy of a queen'.
A century later a great tradition was founded when Russian Tsar Alexander III's jeweller - a certain Pierre-Karl Fabergé - designed an opulent, bejewelled bottle for the house. The unique bottle shape is adorned with its distinctive gold casing, paying homage to its glamorous beginnings.
