High-pitched and precise on the nose displaying scents of candied citrus jasmine chalky minerals and quinine. Dry nervy incisive citrus and orchard fruit flavors show very good clarity and pick up a spicy quality with air. Finishes bright and linear with impressive thrust and resonating florality. This taut Champagne appears to be built for the long haul.

Piper Heidsieck

Piper-Heidsieck started out as a cloth and wine trading company Heidsieck & Co which was founded by Florens-Louis Heidsieck in 1785. His distinctive champagne’s reputation quickly spread and won favor at court.

The Piper-Heidsieck Maison owns precious wine-growing land from the Montagne de Reims to the Cote des Bar. The blend of its signature cuvee is 55 to 60% Pinot Noir for structure, 10 to 15% Chardonnay grapes which add elegant nuances, 15 to 20% Pinot Meunier which enhances fruitiness, and 10 to 15% reserve wines which provide consistency from year to year.

Vinification is done separately by variety and by vineyard in order to preserve their unique characters and offer maximum blending flexibility.
