“A gorgeous wine that’s a legend in the making, the 2002 Rare Brut is a blend of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir, with just under 10 grams of dosage. Offering incredible notes of stone fruits, brioche, white flowers, and hints of toasted nuts, this flat out awesome wine is concentrated and opulent, yet still dances on the palate with vibrant acidity and great, great finish. It’s going to drink beautifully for another two to three decades. Bravo! This cuvee has only been made in 1976, 1979, 1985, 1988, 1990, 1998, 1999, 2002, and in 2007.”

“Another sensational Champagne, as well as the first vintage for the cuvee, the 2007 Rare Rosé (56% Chardonnay and 44% Pinot Noir) offers that beautiful nuance and complexity you only get from top rosé Champagnes. Orange blossom, strawberries, spice, dried flowers, toasted bread, and orange peel notes all emerge from this richly concentrated, medium to full-bodied, beautifully textured 2007. With a fine, yet layered mousse, incredible complexity, and a great finish, this blockbuster effort will be better with 2-3 years of bottle age and shine for 10-15 years or more.”

“The NV Cuvée Brut is a bright, fresh effort from this estate. Offering up plenty of yeasty notes, stone fruits, a kiss of brioche, and subtle minerality, it’s clean and lively on the palate, with bright acidity, and a classic dry finish. If you’re looking for a high-quality sparkler that will deliver the goods over the coming 4-5 years, you can’t go wrong here.”

“The salmon colored 2007 Rosé Millésime Rare has a clear, fresh slightly oaky-nougat and pretty vinous bouquet. It is a rich and slightly sweetish yet pure, refined, elegant and well-structured Rosé Champagne with a good grip and tension as well as a long,  intensely aromatic and powerful finish. This is a great and enormously complex Champagne with an extraordinary complex finish.”

The Wine Advocate: 94 Points for Piper-Heidsieck Vintage Brut 2008

“The 2008 Vintage Brut offers a clear and toasty aroma on the nose. Pure, fresh, lean and delicate but complex and mineral on the palate, this is a lithe and elegant, very finessed and persistent 2008 with grip and expression. This is a complex, intense yet light and very elegant Champagne with a pure, mineral-structured and persistent finish.”

The Wine Advocate: 90 Points for Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage Brut NV

Piper-Heidsieck Rosé Sauvage Brut NV received a new review from Stephan Reinhardt in the November 30, 2017 issue of Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:

“The NV Rosé Sauvage Brut has a dark salmon color (thanks to the 25% of red wine) and offers an intense, aromatic, almost meaty bouquet of red fruits (red currant, cherries) along with earthy, chalky, and yeasty brioche flavors. Vinous indeed on the nose! On the palate, this is a very fresh, clear and aromatic Rosé that comes a long as a sparkling red wine like Trollinger. It’s so charming, round and fresh but also dry and well-structured. The finish is clear, dry and cleansing, just gorgeous. This is a perfect Champagne to be served with fish, white meat, and even barbeque.”

“Piper-Heidsieck’s white-golden colored, NV Cuvée Brut has a clear, fresh, fine, and aromatic bouquet with sweet cherry but also brioche and chalky aromas. The attack on the palate is fresh and delicate, and the charming finish reveals brioche and whole grain as well as aromatic fruit flavors. This is a medium-bodied, stimulatingly fresh and well-structured blend with gorgeous fruit and a clean, persistent finish. I’d like to brunch with it every Sunday morning until the night comes.”
