The beautiful region of Champagne does indeed produce the most discerning and delicate sparkling wines in the world. However, making wine here, on the northern limit for vine growing, is an extremely daring undertaking. Of course, the PIPER-HIEDSIECK Maison owns precious wine-growing land from the Montagne de Reims to the Côte des Bar. However, the majority of the hundred growths used for the blending of its signature cuvée, a full bodied wine, come from growths carefully chosen from those most representative of the diversity grown in Champagne. From amongst the region’s traditional grape varieties, a privileged place is given to Pinot Noir (55 to 60%). It gives structure to the composition. Chardonnay grapes (10 to 15%) add elegant nuances. Pinot Meunier (15 to 20%) expands the blend with its fruitiness. The precious reserve wines (10 to 15%) correct any vagaries of nature. They balance out the current harvest wines and perpetuate the signature of PIPER-HEIDSIECK’s non-vintage Brut. The result is a delight for the senses. On the eye, there is an explosion of fine bubbles and golden glints as if the wine contained all the shades of the Champagne sky. The nose reveals subtle springtime aromas of citrus, apple and pear. In the mouth, the wine is forthright, structured and fruity.
