Rare 2002 (97 Points) on Wine Spectator Cover
Piper-Heidsieck Rare 2002 (97 points) is featured on the cover of the December 15 issue of Wine Spectator and Régis Camus is featured in Alison Napjus’ article “Champagne Abundance: Creativity and Precision Winemaking Drive Quality Forward.” From the article:
Topping the list are 15 wines that earn classic ratings of 95 points or higher on Wine Spectator’s 100-point scale, crowned by Piper-Heidsieck’s 1998 Brut Rare (98 points). Piper-Heidsieck Chef de Cave Régis Camus draws out beautiful spice notes and toasty aromatic expression through the use of full malolactic fermentation and extended bottle aging: “If it were up to me, I’d do everything in magnum,” says Camus of the fact that this is the only format in which the 1998 is available. – Alison Napjus
