Rare Le Se­cret Cham­pagne

Robb Report (USA) - - MOST WANTED -

Régis Ca­mus, the chef de cave for Rare, one of Cham­pagne’s pre­mium cu­vées, is some­thing of a sneak. Back in 1997, he squir­reled away some of that year’s sparkling wine, ex­pect­ing it to prove ex­tra­or­di­nary over time. Last year he deemed it fi­nally ready for its de­but as

Rare Le Se­cret. The 20-yearold wine has no sugar added, a rar­ity among Cham­pagnes.

For an­other layer of ex­clu­siv­ity, Ca­mus part­nered with Mel­le­rio, France’s old­est jew­elry house, to cre­ate a jew­eled edi­tion of just 10 mag­nums. White and yel­low gold wrap the bot­tle, with a di­a­mond, sap­phire, emer­ald, or ruby cen­ter­piece sur­rounded by gold and plat­inum rib­bons with four carats of di­a­monds. Af­ter en­joy­ing the Cham­pagne, the buyer can take the jewels to Mel­le­rio’s stu­dio on Rue de la Paix to have a cus­tom piece of jew­elry de­signed. $100,000.
