In its January edition of the newsletter Insider, Wine Spectator gives a very special place to two of Piper-Heidsieck champagnes:
Cuvée Brut NV awarded 92 points!
Vintage 2008 awarded 93 points!
With these excellent results they join Insider’s selection of best champagnes. Called "Vibrant" and "Bright", they represent the Maison’s spirit in the best way possible and play their part in its already long prize list. We are really proud of this recognition and hope the year 2017 will sustain this momentum.
Piper-Heidsieck, the most awarded House of the Century.
About Insider by Wine Spectator
American magazine with an international influence in the wine industry, Wine Spectator editors review more than 15,000 wines each year in blind tastings. Every issue of Wine Spectator magazine contains from 400 to more than 1,000 wine reviews with detailed tasting notes and analysis. We set stringent standards for ourselves and rely on the proven ability and experience of our editors as tasters and critics.
Created in 1785, Piper-Heidsieck is part of EPI Group owned by Christopher Descours.
Piper-Heidsieck triggers, teases and renews the flame, each wine revealing its character just as a perfume divulges its fragrance when applied to the nape of the neck or wrist. Each bottle is an overture to seduction, the golden robe unfurling its effervescence like so many pearls.
In line with the wines that we produce - and the time necessary for the meticulous and loving vinification – Piper-Heidsieck represents an enticing, languorous seduction, in contrast with the hurried act of bodily desire. Piper-Heidsieck is the champagne of those who prefer hidden mystery to the obvious.
History is a fabric woven of encounters, the fruit of all the stories it comprises. Florens-Louis Heidsieck created his first vintage in 1785 for Agathe Perthois. The fruit of a love story, our House has kept alive this memory for more than two centuries, combining ambition with expertise, passion with the character of those who founded the Piper-Heidsieck legend. As a result of these unions, we build upon Henri-Guillaume Piper’s marketing talents and his wife’s surname, the audacity of the Marquis Suarez d’Aulan and the passion of the Descours family.
