Piper-Heidsieck Vintage Brut 75cl

Piper-Heidsieck Vintage Brut

Régis Camus, Piper-Heidsieck’s brilliant winemaker, claims that ‘while not the most difficult wine to make, the vintage should be like a photograph of the year, yet still reflecting the house style’. The 2006 is a near 50/50 blend of Chardonnay and Pinot Noir and is both powerful and structured, yet displays an elegant fruit expression with minerality on the finish. A blend of 17 Grand and Premier Cru wines, aged for six years on its lees prior to release; it shows a honeyed, creamy apricot and orange-zest fruit character with ample freshness on the finish.
