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

It demonstrates model balance of Pinot weight, fruity and flowery Meunier, and the citrus span of Chardonnay. There's a nice saline palate, drawing from reserve wines. Serious yet friendly, it's an adaptable food wine to try with clam chowder, moules marinières or lobster bisque.

Offering up aromas of golden orchard fruit, freshly baked bread and warm biscuits, it's medium to full-bodied, with a pillowy mousse, brisk acids and a mouthwatering finish. This will benefit from another year on cork to knit together and round out, but it's a creditable effort. - William Kelley

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.
