Rare Champagne was originally a cuvée from the champagne house Charles Heidsieck, created in 1785 as a tribute to Queen Marie Antoinette of France. It became its own brand in 2018.

These champagnes are crafted only in selected years when the harvest produces grapes of exceptional quality. The champagnes are typically composed mostly of Chardonnay with some Pinot Noir. Rare Champagne is produced in minimal quantities making it an exclusive champagne. Rare Champagnes undergo extensive ageing in the cellars. They produce only three cuvées: the ‘Rare Millésime’, crafted only in outstanding vintage years, the ‘Rare Rosé Millésime’, a vintage champagne mainly composed of Pinot Noir, and the ‘Rare Le Secret’, an exclusive cuvée produced in limited quantities and during exceptional years only.

The limited availability of Rare Champagne is also influenced by the selective distribution and allocation of their champagnes. The cuvée ‘Rare Millésime’ can range in price from approximately £150 to £300 or above, depending on the specific vintage and bottle size. Prices for ‘Rare Le Secret’ can range from several hundred dollars to several thousand dollars per bottle.
