97 Points for the Rare 2002 from Wine Spectator


In the September 2, 2016, Wine Spectator Insider, Champagne expert Alison Napjus awards the PIPER-HEIDSIECK Rare 2002 a score of 97 points. Here’s her glowing review of this extraordinary wine:

Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne Rare 2002  | 97 points
Impeccably balanced and silky, with finely honed acidity shaping the expansive flavors of toasted brioche, crushed blackberry, lemon preserves and honey, revealing hints of Frangelico liqueur and smoked nut. Rich and vivid, offering a lasting finish. Drink now through 2027. From France.”—Alison Napjus.
