The Story

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 eye
A clear, golden Champagne robe par excellence. Delicate and fine bubbles resulting from an extended maturation time.

On the nose
Fresh fruit dominates, with pear and russet apple, and a few hints of citrus fruits such as star fruit. The finish evokes fresh grapes, livened with hints of freshness and aniseed.

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 flavours. A wine with great fruit, a good mouthfeel and a harmonious balance.

Written Notes

Still so fresh, this is fruity, yes, but it has such a depth of flavor with its red fruits the starting point for an adventure in tastes and textures.

  • 90p

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.

  • 91p

Ripe Champagne-colour. Very elegant nose with fine white blossoms and wisteria, green hazelnuts, hints of pear, rather Chardonnay-driven nose. On the palate crisp and elegant with fine acidity, a touch of well integrated sweetness, good aromatic length with flavour reminiscent of white blossoms and yellow stone fruit. On the palate riper style than on the nose.

  • 91p

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

  • 91p

Subtle and lacy in texture, with a smoky, minerally underpinning and flavors of ripe pear, lemon meringue and pickled ginger.

  • 88p

Deep lemony colour. Fragrant and complex nose of vanilla, toasty and sweet fruitiness. Elegant palate with with toasty complexity and delicious pure fruit. Long linear and fine.

  • 91p
NOTE Marilyn Monroes favoritchampagne. Vinerna centrifugeras, men utsattes tidigare aldrig för malolaktisk jäsning, vilket ledde till sylvassa viner utan extrakt. I dag gör Piper en mjukare och mer lättillgänglig standardchampagne. Alla champagner från firman vinner enormt mycket på lagring, vilket tyvärr inte Piper upplyser konsumenterna om. Den malolaktiska jäsningen uppmuntras och Piper har ryckt upp detta vin väsentligt de senaste åren sedan Thibault blev Chef de caves. Vissa mogna flaskor är läckert rostade. Bättre än någonsin. High drinkabillity-factor.
  • 87p
Nose: fine, stylish, fragrant, tropical fruits Palate: linear acidity, intense fruit Ending: refreshing In a nutshell: Classy Final verdict: the quality of Piper keeps on rising
