Piper Heidsieck Cuvee Brut
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.
