Piper-Heidsieck Rare Brut 75cl

Piper-Heidsieck Rare Brut

‘Rare’ is the Prestige Cuvée of Piper-Heidsieck and is only made in extraordinary vintages – this 2002 version being just the 8th since 1976. Made with fruit sourced from 8 of the best crus in Champagne, the blend is, unusually for Piper-Heidsieck, dominated by Chardonnay making up 70% of the blend (the balance being Pinot Noir) and aged for a minimum of 8 years on its lees, often much more. The nose exhibits ripe exotic fruits, sandalwood, smoked tea and candied ginger. Dosed at 9.5g/l, the wine strikes a balance between fruit purity and lees character, sweetness and acidity. A hugely awarded Prestige Cuvee Champagne.
