Piper-Heidsieck Cuvee Brut Reims 1.5L
Winemaker Notes: The Brut NV represents the epitome of the Piper-Heidsieck style: a classic, well-structured, and fruit forward champagne. Piper-Heidsieck carefully selects fruit from more than 100 of Champagne’s crus to blend the Brut NV. This adds great complexity and dimension to the wine and allows the bold Piper-Heidsieck style to shine through. A majority blend of Pinot Noir provides structure to the composition while Pinot Meunier expands the wine with its brilliant fruit expression and fleshiness and Chardonnay bring elegant tones and acidity. The precious reserve wines create a consistent flavor profile year after year.
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.
Wine Spectator - "A mouthwatering Champagne, with a fine mousse, this offers juicy flavors of plum, candied grapefruit zest, ground ginger and pastry. Vibrant and expressive. Drink now through 2020."
Jeb Dunnuck - "The NV Cuvée Brut is a bright, fresh effort from this estate. Offering up plenty of yeasty notes, stone fruits, a kiss of brioche and subtle minerality, it’s clean and lively on the palate, with bright acidity, and a classic dry finish. If you’re looking for a high-quality sparker that will deliver the goods over the coming 4-5 years, you can’t go wrong here."
Wine Enthusiast - "The style of Piper-Heidsieck's nonvintage Champagne is getting more and more refined. It is drier than in the past while also full of ripe white fruits. There is a tight structure, a hint of toast from bottle age and fresh acidity at the end. Ready to drink."
Robert Parker - "Piper-Heidsieck's white-golden colored, NV Cuvée Brut has a clear, fresh, fine and aromatic bouquet with sweet cherry but also brioche and chalky aromas. The attack on the palate is fresh and delicate, and the charming finish reveals brioche and whole grain as well as aromatic fruit flavors. This is a medium-bodied, stimulatingly fresh and well-structured blend with gorgeous fruit and a clean, persistent finish. I'd like to brunch with it every Sunday morning until the night comes."
