Piper Heidsieck Cuvée Brut
|Region||France, Champagne, Reims|
Lithe and vibrant, this graceful Champagne is driven by well-knit, racy acidity, carrying flavors of ripe black cherry, grated ginger, toast point and mineral on the satiny mousse. Drink now through 2022.
Piper's nonvintage Champagne is balanced, fruity, fresh and elegant. It is both ripe and crisp with apple fruits, a mineral edge and final fruitiness. Drink now.
The latest release of Piper-Heidsieck's NV Cuvée Brut is showing well, offering up attractive aromas of fresh pears, green apple, dried flowers and subtle hints of wheat toast and fresh bread. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, generous but nicely focused, with an enveloping core of fruit, ripe but racy acids and a nicely balanced finish. This is a very solid non-vintage cuvée that should evolve gracefully for the coming decade.
