Founded in 1785, Piper-Heidsieck owes its international success to its bold leadership, with innovation always remaining at its core. Over the centuries, Piper-Heidsieck, known for its iconic cuvées, has fostered its reputation of international wine excellence well beyond the borders of France through its long-standing love affair with cinema and fashion. Since 2018, the Maison has been paired perfectly with one of the youngest Chief Winemakers, Émilien Boutillat (IWC Sparkling Wine Maker of the Year 2021), charged with safeguarding Piper-Heidsieck’s unique philosophy and leading the House into the future. Today, it brings together Champagne drinkers from 100 countries worldwide, with one bottle popped every eight seconds. Proud to hold a dual certification of VDC (Sustainable Viticulture in Champagne) and HVE (High Environmental Value) in its vineyards since 2015, Piper-Heidsieck continues to improve the quality and authenticity of its wines and acknowledges the importance of its global responsibility to positively impact the environment through sustainable practices. Today, the house is owned by the same family as Charles Heidsieck, Rare Champagne, Biondi-Santi and Château La Verrerie, benefitting from the quality ethos that drives the continual investment in winemaking and vineyards from the Descours family.
This wine is pale golden in colour. On the nose, there are intense notes of almonds and fresh hazelnuts, with flavours of fresh pear and apple with a delicate hint of citrus. It is lively and light with added depth from the Pinot Noir, creating beautiful balance.
The 2014 vintage is elegant, radiant and intense. Golden in colour, the nose delivers aromas of orange blossom, apricot, brioche and a hint of toasted almond. On the palate, there are notes of tangerine, lime zest and liquorice. It has a refreshing acidity with a long, silky finish.
