This signature cuvée of the House is a round and vibrant non-vintage Cuvée Brut recalling the rich variety of its blend of 100 crus from across the patchwork of Champagne vineyards.
Just like a self-assured romantic character with a strong and chatty personality, this champagne teases and allures us with its festive, light-drenched, pale gold shimmer and joyful display of neat, lively bubbles.
Notes of almond and fresh hazelnut accompany the precise ascent of its bubbles. It is lively, subtle and light, leaving a deliciously incisive sensation of smoothness, marked by the pureness of fresh pear and apple and a delicate hint of citrus fruits.
A harmonious mixture of bright, crunchy pomelo, blonde grapes and juicy white fruits creates the delightfully surprising sensation of lightness embraced by the structure and depth from the Pinot Noir; all beautifully balanced.
50-55% Pinot Noir, 30-35% Meunier, 15-20% Chardonnay.
10-20% reserve wines.
Dosage: 10 g/l
Piper-Heidsieck was founded by Florens-Louis Heidsieck on July 16, 1785 in Reims. After the founder died in 1828, the business was taken over by his nephew, Christian Heidsieck, and his cousin Henri-Guillaume Piper. They combined to form the Piper-Heidsieck house when Henri Piper married the widow of Christian Heidsieck in 1838.
