Wine Enthusiast, December 2020

The four years on the lees before disgorgement shows in the richness of this Champagne. Nutty flavors and perfumed aromas come together in a ripe, tightly textured and mature bottling. Drink this fine wine now. ROGER VOSS

Wine Spectator, November 2021

A lithe and lacy Champagne that wraps flavors of ripe pear, blanched almond and candied lemon zest with lightly juicy acidity. Hints of graphite and spice show on the fresh finish. Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and...

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.
