Piper Heidsieck Rare Millésime 2002
Perfectly classic, Rare Millésime 2002 combines spicy aromas with freshness, oriental scents with minerality, purity with precision. Dazzling, crystal-clear, citrine yellow gold color enlivened by a delicate, shimmering effervescence. The fruit emerges on the nose as delicate, golden, muted exotic fruits - mango and kiwifruit - and dried fruit - hazelnut, almond and fig. A touch of iodine enhances this wine's flawless nose. The mild spices reflect the wine's depth - white pepper, smoked tea and cocoa. A wine with depth on the palate but also honed, precise, in harmony. Voluptuous delicacy with meringue notes. Subtle nuances evoke distant lands - mint tea, lime, kumquat and exotic fruits such as pineapple and candied ginger.
