Description & Technical Information
-
Piper-Heidsieck Essentiel Cuvée Reservée NV is the newest release from the house. With extended ageing and a lower dosage than the Cuvée Brut NV this has more complexity and precision.

Piper-Heidsieck's roots trace back to Florens-Louis Heidsieck, who created the original company of Heidsieck & Co. Christian Heidsieck joined the venture alongside Guillaume Piper and once Florens-Louis died in 1828, the duo decided to continue the adventure side by side, founding Champagne Piper-Heidsieck.

In 2011 both Charles Heidsieck and Piper-Heidsieck were bought by EPI Group headed by Christopher Descours, he has pumped significant finance into the companies allowing them to grow their vineyard holdings, grape purchasing and production. The brands are now growing their sales fast after many decades of decline. Today, production occurs alongside sister company Charles Heidsieck in an ultra-modern functional wine-making facility on the southern outskirts of Reims. Their characteristics differ quite considerably, with Piper opting for a fruitier and lighter style of base wines.

Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims give the structure and the Chardonnay from la Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims expresses the elegance and charm of the vintage. Cuvée Brut is a round and vibrant non-vintage Cuvée Brut recalling the rich variety of its blend of 100 crus from across Champagne.

“Impressively toasty nose with lots of pastry nuances, both dried and fresh fruit, spice and charred notes. Fruity, boosted palate with fresh acidic backbone and soft expansive mousse. Lovely fleshy texture with perfectly soft, perky bubbles, Long, juicy finish. A charmer of richness and vivacity.”
