PIPER-HEIDSIECK carefully selects fruit from more than 100 of Champagne’s crus to blend the Brut NV. This adds great complexity and dimension to the wine and allows the bold PIPER-HEIDSIECK style to shine through. A majority blend of Pinot Noir provides structure to the composition while Pinot Meunier expands the wine with its brilliant fruit expression and fleshiness. Chardonnay bring elegant tones and acidity. The precious reserve wines create a consistent flavor profile year after year.
Grape varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 25% Pinot Meunier, 15% Chardonnay
Fermentation: The wine goes through alcoholic fermentation in September and October, followed by malolactic fermentation from October to December. Blending takes place from February to April, followed by racking in January.
Aging: 24 months (vs. the 15 months minimum required for a non-vintage Champagne)
Sparkling light gold with fine bubbles
Pear, golden grape
Structured and full-bodied. A juicy, fleshy pear and golden grape texture. The finish narrows to citrus and grapefruit flavors.
