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.
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.
