Piper-Heidsieck Rare 2002 Wins Top Award
FINE Champagne Magainze and Tastingbook.com have named the Rare Millésime 2002 the Champagne of the Decade!
The wine was selected in a rigorous process that began with the tasting, over the course of 2015 and 2016, of more than 1,0000 Champagnes made between 2000 and 2009. The top 100 advanced to a final, blind tasting held in Reims, France. Here are the Top 10 scoring Champagnes as posted on Tastingbook.com:
According to Tastingbook.com, “WINE of the DECADE is the wine ranking concept that was created by FINE wine magazines together with Tastingbook.com in 2013. The rankings are held 2-3 times a year.” Previous categories judged include Australian reds from the 2000s, Napa Valley Cabernets from the ’90s, and all the wines of the ’70s.
