Wanda Mann on the Brut NV, from Start to Finish
Wanda Mann, author of the Black Dress Traveler blog, sits down with Régis Camus and explores how the PIPER-HEIDSIECK Brut NV comes to be, and she offers a tasting note for the current bottling. An excerpt from her thoughtful and elegant piece:
Is it any wonder why Champagne is so revered? From the vineyard to assemblage and beyond, so much goes into crafting this most special of wines that requires no effort to enjoy. To truly appreciate the delicious puzzle that is Piper-Heidsieck, pop open a bottle of their Brut NV ($45) – it is a lively Champagne with fine bubbles, a lingering finish, and balanced flavors of citrus, pear, brioche, and minerality. Cheers!
