Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne

SKU #100189 91 points Wine Spectator

 Smoke and toasted brioche notes ride a lively bead in this well-cut Champagne, layered with pastry cream, poached apple, fresh ginger, honey and yellow plum flavors. Lightly creamy throughout, with a hint of fleur de sel on the finish. Drink now through 2020.  (11/ 2013)

Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

 Light yellow. Aromas of white peach and melon, with subtle floral and ginger qualities in the background. Fruity and round, offering citrus-accented pit and tropical fruit flavors and a warm quality on the back half. Finishes smooth, with a lingering suggestion of ginger and good cling.  (12/ 2013)

Wine Enthusiast

 This is a bright style of Champagne that’s fresh and crisp. It has a strong citrus tang, with notes of green apple and attractive lemon zest. It is fit for an apéritif.  (12/ 2012)

This is a great little champagne at a very affordable price! It has pear and ripe flavors on the nose with some cream, as well. On the palate, juicy and rich but, there are also ample mineral notes on the finish. Very, very nice at a really great price!

Country:

France

- When it comes to wine, France stands alone. No other country can beat it in terms of quality and diversity. And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them.

Sub-Region:

Champagne

- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
