Piper Heidsieck - Brut Rose Sauvage - Champagne 75cl Bottle
75cl Bottle £39.86 In Stock
Description: A charming wine with delicate and enchanting accents. It gives an impression of youth and vigour but also tenderness and serenity. The ultimate in refinement.
Based on a blend of about fifty crus; the same approach to blending as that of the Brut Cuvee, with the addition of a proportion of red Champagne wine, which gives this wine not only a style typical of Piper-Heidsieck but also a distinctive colour and fruity taste. The harmony of the blend develops during a long maturing process lasting at least thirty months in the Piper-Heidsieck chalk cellars.
It can be drunk as an aperitif and served at a cocktail party, garden reception, an all-night party lasting until dawn, an intimate tete-a-tete or a gathering of friends.
It is also ideal for a sophisticated dinner party. In the kitchen, it can be used to prepare fish and chicken, and desserts based on red fruit.
A carefully studied simplicity that will enable you to express a spontaneity full of charm.
An intense colour, a clear and deep pink, whilst on the nose, the first impression is fresh, suggesting the high spirit and vivacity typical of the Piper-Heidsieck style. It has a strong aroma of red fruit, dominated by the Morello cherry. This is followed by a fragrant harmony of citrus fruit, mandarins and blood oranges. The final impression leaves a hint of cinnamon.
The palate is lively, generous - an intense wine. Its freshness is expressed by the slight tartness of red fruit, which then mellows with the aromas of macerated fruit and red plums. The final sensation is exuberant and warm.

Florens-Louis Heidsieck was the son of a Lutheran minister from Westphalia. He moved to Reims to work as a cloth merchant, and discovered winemaking there. He started making his own wine in 1780, and while he was neither a viticulturist nor a native of Reims, he displayed talent and worked hard at his new-found profession. He founded his own House on 16 July 1785. He had already become an expert in his art, and even dedicated one of his wines to Queen Marie-Antoinette. Moreover, he was granted the honour of presenting it to Her Majesty in person.
Piper was exceptionally gifted in business and as an entrepreneur of his time, he travelled the world promoting Heidsieck champagne. Fourteen royal and imperial courts made the House their official supplier, and quite soon, "Heidsieck from Piper" was the only champagne which true aficionados would drink. And thus the wine with quality standards rigorously defined by Florens-Louis Heidsieck himself very quickly became known as "Piper-Heidsieck".
