94 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Powerful aromas of black cherry, tobacco, clove, chocolate and oak are heavy but pleasing on this bold style of Pinot Noir. The lush, delicious and potent palate delivers more of the same, with black-cherry and tobacco flavors sprinkled with crushed nutmeg and vanilla. Matt Kettmann" - (10/1/2019)

"The concentration and largesse of the 2016 Pichon Baron is apparent from the get-go with incredibly alluring, ripe and expansive fruit aromas in the blackberry, dark-cherry, mulberry and plum zone. Espresso and cedar, as well as a slate-like, stony mineral edge add complexity. The palate has incredible depth, drive and detail. Fine and plush tannins stretch the palate in every direction. So fresh and vivacious, this is the greatest Pichon Baron since 1989 and has a long future. Try from 2024." (Jan 2019)

"This gushes with dark fig and black currant compote flavors backed by lively sweet tobacco and singed alder edges. Very fleshy in feel, though there's ample grip to keep this red grounded, echoing with tar and humus accents through the finish. A thumper. Best from 2025 through 2040. 13,500 cases made." —JM

"This sits very much in red-fruit territory with tulips, fragrant red plums, rose petals and a distinctive lavender edge. Light to medium body, tangy acidity and a fruity finish. Lighter style. Drink now." - (15 Apr, 2019)

About the Wine:
Aged for more than 20 years in his private cellar and revealed now in 2018, Rare Le Secret is the most unique creation of Régis Camus, Rare Champagne’s Cellar Master.

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.

Tasting Notes:
Challenging and expressive.
Emblematic of the Rare Champagne style, Régis Camus blended Rare Le Secret with an added touch of boldness!

THE EYE: STUNNING
Elegant bubbles rise in a dazzling dance of delicate effervescence.

THE NOSE: MEMORABLE AND DELICATE
Rare Le Secret is defined by exceptional depth and complexity: scents of liquorice, 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.

THE PALATE: LIVELY AND EXOTIC
Following a crisp attack of lemon and citrus fruit, hints of fresh apricot, and verbena exude a soothing minerality. Touches of acacia honey and incense develop a smoky, exotic vinosity with an infinite, structured and forceful finale that is almost ethereal. Due to the absence of sugar and its recent disgorging, Rare Le Secret is expressive, precise, and yet complex. Unforgettable.

99 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is more exuberant and sexy, with awesome notes of blueberries, blackberries, incense, violets and unsmoked tobacco. This huge, unctuous, beauty has killer purity of fruit, gorgeous mid-palate depth, sweet, sweet tannin and the succulent, sexy style of the vintage front and center. Gaining depth and richness with time in the glass, this incredible Cabernet Sauvignon will be better with 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for two decades. " (Dec 2017)

"This powerful red is rich in steeped cherry, red plum and currant flavors that are matched to herb, graphite and olive elements, aided by aromas of tea and anise that dovetail into the tangy finish. Drink now through 2026. 7,500 cases made, 300 cases imported." - GS (Issue Oct 15, 2018)
