Piper-Heidisck Millesime Rare 2002
In only the eighth vintage release of this prestigious, classical prestige cuvéthe from the 2002 vintage, Piper Heidsieck have delivered a structured, full-bodied Champagne bursting with fruit. It's a blend of 17 Crus, which matured for over seven years in the House's cellars.
"...extra time on cork post-disgorgement adding to the complexity – and harmony – of the marriage between the zesty grapefruit flavours of the Chardonnay and layers of creamy/honeyed brioche ex the time on tirage and the Pinot Noir component. The farewell of lively acidity attests to the quality of the vintage." 97 points, James Halliday
