Decanter, January 2020

Decanter World Wine Awards 2020. Citrus-infused, peachy and creamy characters on the nose with some autolytic nuttiness. Rich, savoury and multidimensional palate brimful of raspberry, white chocolate, coffee, and...

Decanter, July 2019

Very much a youngster, even after five-and-a-half years on its lees. A blend of 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay, 2012 has the potential for some of the best Pinot Noir since 1952. With vivid shafts of gold colour, this...

jebdunnuck.com, November 2019

Based on 52% Pinot Noir and 48% Chardonnay, with 10 grams of dosage, the 2012 Champagne offers a beautifully layered, rich style with loads of brioche and orchard fruits, medium-bodied richness and depth, good acidity...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2019

93+ Unfurling in the glass with incipiently complex aromas of citrus oil, wheat toast, fresh peach and crisp orchard fruit, the newly released 2012 Vintage Brut is full-bodied, deep and tightly wound, with excellent...

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.
