Piper-Heidsieck "1785" Brut Champagne NV (France)
Winery Notes: Piper-Heidsieck carefully selects fruit from more than 100 of Champagne's crus to blend the Cuvee 1785. This adds great complexity and dimension to the wine and allowed 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 and Chardonnay bring elegant tones and acidity. The precious reserve wines create a consistent flavor profile year after year.
COLOR: Sparkling light gold with fine bubbles.
AROMA: Structured and full-bodied.
TASTE: A juicy, fleshy pear and golden grape texture. The finish narrows to citrus and grapefruit flavors.
Wine Spectator, 92 Points: "Lithe and vibrant, this graceful Champagne is driven by well-knit, racy acidity, carrying flavors of ripe black cherry, grated ginger, toast point and mineral on the satiny mousse."
