NV Piper Heidsieck Cuvée Brut Champagne
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 - "Vibrant acidity and flavors of toasted brioche, crushed blackberry, candied ginger and salted almond ride the fine, satiny texture of this harmonious Champagne, which features a fresh, graphite-tinged finish."
Jeb Dunnuck - "Crisp and clean, with a classic bouquet of orchard fruits, toasted bread, and a touch of minerality, the NV Champagne Cuvée Brut was disgorged in March of this year. It's beautifully textured and has a solid mid-palate, good density, and a clean, crisp finish, all making for a high-quality Champagne to enjoy over the coming 5-7 years."
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's Wine Advocate - "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."
