Today, production occurs alongside sister company Charles Heidsieck in an ultra-modern functional cuverie on the southern outskirts of Reims. Their characteristics differ quite considerably, with Piper opting for a fruitier and lighter style of base wines. In recent times, the House has shifted from royal accolades to becoming a favourite amongst celebrity stars. Indeed, the legendary Marilyn Monroe famously declared in 1953: “I go to bed with a few drops of Chanel No. 5 and I wake up each morning to a glass of Piper-Heidsieck; it warms me up.”
Cellar Master: Régis Camus
Winery Location: Reims | Champagne, France
Champagne Region: Montagne de Reims
Annual Production (bottles): 8,000,000
Weather: After a rainy but mild winter without any prolonged cold spells, spring arrived with some very localised frosts. Cool weather returned in June and the infrequent sunshine prolonged the feeling of freshness. The spring to autumn weather was bright with sunny spells and the long, hot days and cool nights during September gave the grapes excellent acidity during the harvest period. The 2008 vintage is fast emerging as one of the best since the renowned and now-legendary 2002.
Vineyards: Grand Cru, Premier Cru | Chardonnay: la Côte des Blancs, Montagne de Reims | Pinot Noir: Montagne de Reims
Grape Varieties: 52% Chardonnay, 48% Pinot Noir
Ageing: 7 years on the lees
Dosage: 9.5 g/l
Tasting Note: A lush golden hue with a fine bead of bubbles. Initially delicate notes on the palate give way to a ripe fruit freshness. Citrus and plums right through to the long finish.
