Piper-Heidsieck Vintage Brut 2012

Vintage

$89.95

- Sister house of Charles Heidsieck

- Newly released vintage 2012

- 48% Chardonnay and 52% Pinot Noir

A rain-filled spring followed by a dry, sunny summer provided an ideal combination to make the 2012 Millesime an exceptional vintage. Modest production along with magnificent maturity of the grapes contributed to an extraordinary aromatic concentration. Elegant Chardonnays blended with powerful Pinots Noirs to produce rich, perfectly balanced wines. 

Notes of pomegranate and almond open with the expression of a plush texture of smoked tea or freshly harvested honey, the juice of ripe black cherries and blackberries. The long, silky finish is perfect both as a prelude or the accompaniment to a gourmet meal.

Dosage: 10g/L. 

Created in 1785 by Florens-Louis Heidsieck who aimed to create a wine worthy of a Queen, Piper-Heidsieck is one of France’s oldest champagne houses. With a grand history, the house has been synonymous with excellence, boldness, and grandeur for 230 years. One of the world’s most awarded champagnes, Piper-Heidsieck benefits from the expertise of celebrated winemaker, Régis Camus, who has been named 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year' 8 times over the past 10 years.

As this wine has great richness and development in flavour, it would comfortably pair with chicken, roasted with lemon and rosemary. If you are into soups, cellarmaster Severine Frerson recommends creamy chestnut soup with fennel and slices of duck breast.
