The nose is reminiscent of a bright, fresh morning during the early days of May. Notes of citrus fruits, pear, Granny Smith apple and subtle hints of warm toastiness follow spring blossoms such as hawthorn. The palate is lively and fresh with more mature of pineapple, nutmeg, white pepper and oriental zest.

Wine EnthusiastIn a delicate style, this is pure, delightful apéritif Champagne that enters the mouth gently, the lightest of mousses, and then rounds out with a creamy texture, dry, but not too crisp, the finish soft and caressing.

Wine AdvocateRipe pears, crisp green apples and flowers emerge from Piper-Hiediesck's NV Brut Cuvee. This medium-bodied non-vintage Champagne offers excellent persistence and a long, clean finish. It is a very solid effort at this level. The Brut Cuvee is 55% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay. This is lot L070921 12253, disgorged December, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008-2010.

Wine SpectatorAn open, airy Champagne, backed by a brisk acidity and a tactile feel. This frames the peach, apple and citrus flavors, tightening up on the finish. Drink now through 2013.
