    Winemaker's Notes:

    #84 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2012

    Piper-Heidsieck Cuvée Brut is a classic, structured, full-bodied and bursting with fruit Champagne. The blend is composed of a majority of Pinots Noirs, incorporating more than 100 crus from around the Champagne region and Pinots Meuniers from the Grande et Petite Montagne de Reims region.

    On the palate:
    A structured, full-bodied and franc wine. A juicy, fleshy pear and golden grape texture. The finish narrows to citrus and grapefruit flavors. A wine with great fruit, a good mouthfeel and a harmonious balance.

    Critical Acclaim:

    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.

    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.

    By far the best Piper Brut we've tasted in years, this is a full-bodied, oxidative, savory wine that would stand up to red meat. There's some sulfur when the wine is first poured, but once that dissipates, the richness of the texture takes over with bold, juicy lemon and ginger flavors.

    We drink a lot of champagne, and we've tried a lot of different kinds, but we always come back to Piper Heidsieck, the basic brut. To us it is the platonic champagne, the benchmark, against which we describe all others; they are all lighter, crisper, darker, fuller. Maybe it's because we've been drinking and enjoying PH's basic brut for over 30 years now. It has a full bubble and a rich, nutty flavor, with little or no acid. It's not in an austere style, and lacks some of the more exotic flavors that pop up in some artisanal bubblies. It isn't Krug or La Grande Dame or a 1988 Acacia, but it is a magnificent champagne whether for a celebration or every day drinking.

    I love this champagne. I have bought it for many years now and although a bit pricey, it is my go to holiday and special occasion champagne: not too dry, not too sweet--perfect.

    Very affordable, appropriate for all kinds of occasions - I brought this with me across the country to celebrate our anniversary with family - it's not too sweet but still dry enough - everyone loves it
