Steeped in history, innovation and excellence have been at the heart of Piper-Heidsieck since 1785. Florens-Louis Heidsieck founded his Champagne House with the dream to create a ‘cuveé worthy of a queen’. That dream was realized when he boldly presented his first cuvee to Queen Marie Antoinette and she declared love at first sip. The Heidsieck name was combined with the Piper name in October 1839. Piper-Heidsieck’s red carpet reputation is world-renown at film festivals across the globe, and it is also the official sponsor of the Cannes Film Festival and the Academy Awards and has appeared in many notable films.
Piper-Heidsieck Cuvee Brut is a classic, well-structured, and fruit forward sourced from 100 different villages in Champagne. It's crisp and clean, with a bouquet of orchard fruits, toasted bread, and a touch of minerality. The palate is juicy and rich showing flavors of black cherry, apple, pear, toast point, white peach, cherry, and hazelnut leading to a mineral driven finish. Sole Véroniqu is a dish which this wine would partner well.
