Star-Ledger: Closing out 2015 in Style with PIPER-HEIDSIECK

John Foy, the longtime Newark Star-Ledger and NJ.com wine wine writer, reviews the PIPER-HEIDSIECK Rare as part of his feature “oing out in style with PrestiGge Cuvee Champagne.” He writes:

Piper-Heidsieck Rare lives up to its name. Created in 1976, it has been made only eight times. The most recent is the 2002 Piper-Heidsieck Rare.

Packaged in a bottle with a tiara-like golden-lace foil bottom and a removable red ring at the top, the 2002 Piper-Heidsieck Rare is stylish to the eye and palate

The 2002 Piper-Heidsieck Rare is a blend of 70 percent chardonnay and 30 percent pinot noir; after nearly eight years of aging, it was released to the market.

I’ve tasted the 2002 Rare six times since its release in 2010; it always displayed its elegant, light body, delicious white fruit flavors, and lingering finish.
