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 palate:
A structured, full-bodied and franc wine. A juicy, fleshy pear and golden grape texture. The finish narrows to citrus and grapefruit flavors. A wine with great fruit, a good mouthfeel and a harmonious balance.
Piper-Heidsieck was founded by Florens-Louis Heidsieck in 1785 in Reims, the heart of France’s Champagne region. The estate’s name was changed to include “Piper” in 1838 when two of the founder’s nephews, one with the last name of Piper, took over the company. In the 1980s the estate was purchased by the Remy Cointreau group and today it is owned by EPI, a private holding company of French luxury goods. About 420,000 cases are produced a year and the estate makes vintage and non-vintage crus.
