Wine Enthusiast, December 2023

The Champagne is balanced between a soft Brut character and crisper lemon flavors. That balance gives a fine wine, open and easy, but with a fine bite of acidity at the end.

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.

The NV Piper Heidsieck Brut Champagne is a well-regarded offering from the esteemed producer Piper Heidsieck. This Champagne blend, composed of 40% Pinot Noir, 39% Pinot Meunier, and 21% Chardonnay, carries an alcohol content of 12.0%. It is sourced from the renowned Champagne region in France and is presented with a classic cork closure.

Wine Spectator awarded this non-vintage Champagne a score of 92, noting its "finely balanced and fresh" profile. The review highlights the delicate bead that carries flavors of "ripe black cherry and green apple fruit," complemented by "a fragrant mix of lime blossom, saffron, toasted almond, and ground coffee details." This blend of varietals creates a complex and nuanced tasting experience.

Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate also provided a favorable review, with William Kelley giving it a score of 90. Kelley describes the Champagne as offering "attractive aromas of fresh pears, green apple, dried flowers, and subtle hints of wheat toast and fresh bread." On the palate, it is "medium to full-bodied, generous but nicely focused, with an enveloping core of fruit, ripe but racy acids, and a nicely balanced finish." Kelley suggests that this cuvée will evolve gracefully over the next decade.

Jeb Dunnuck also reviewed the NV Piper Heidsieck Brut Champagne positively, awarding it a score of 91. He emphasized its "crisp and clean" nature, with a "classic bouquet of orchard fruits, toasted bread, and a touch of minerality." Disgorged in March of the review year, Dunnuck praises its "beautifully textured" body, "good density," and "clean, crisp finish," making it a high-quality Champagne suitable for enjoyment over the next 5-7 years.

Wine Enthusiast and James Suckling both rated this Champagne at 90. Wine Enthusiast highlights its balance "between a soft Brut character and crisper lemon flavors," resulting in an "open and easy" wine with a "fine bite of acidity at the end." Meanwhile, James Suckling points out the "attractively fruity nose of raspberries, baked apples, pie crust, and lemon curd." He describes it as "medium-bodied with vibrant acidity and lively bubbles," emphasizing its clean finish and noting that the base wine is from 2019 with 32% reserve wine and a dosage of 9g/L. Suckling also mentions that it is crafted from organically grown grapes with Ecocert certification.

In summary, the NV Piper Heidsieck Brut Champagne is a balanced, fresh, and attractively complex offering, praised for its fine bead, nuanced flavors, and potential for graceful aging.
