Vintage : 2006
Bottle : 75 cl

From a contrasted year comes an unexpectedly elegantly charming wine. A year that first of all was marked by highly contrasted weather: after a heat wave in July, August witnessed violent storms of rain and hail. A year that offered a contrasted expression of the grapes: the Pinots Noirs were exceptionally intense and impetuous while the Chardonnay was ready for a long maturation. A year that obliged the winemakers to adapt: reducing the proportion of Pinot Noir compared to past years, thus reaching parity between Pinot and Chardonnay to moderate the Pinot Noir’s intensity. A year that asked for patience: the 17 crus that were selected to build the vintage (9 Grands Crus, 7 Premiers Crus – 8 Pinots Noirs, 9 Chardonnays) patiently waited 6 years in the House’s cellars to reach the perfect balance, and express the wine’s elegance and charm. On the eye A pale, crystal-clear yellow, to which the higher proportion of chardonnay brings glints of green. A light, airy effervescence. On the nose Aromas of dried apricots, notes of little red and black berries (raspberry, blackberry) and a hint of spices. Intense and enticing. An ample and generous harmony. On the palate A particularly dense and structured wine, whose generous structure is plush with candied orange peel, highlighted with a touch of smoked tea and toasted almonds. An incredibly long finish and the freshness of the Chardonnays tame the Pinots Noirs’ vigor. Balanced and elegantly charming.

Piper Heidsieck

Product by: Piper Heidsieck

In the late 80s the house was acquired by the large group Remy Cointreau and in 2011 the two main brands, Piper-Heidsieck and Charles Heidsieck, are owned by the group Européenne de Participation Industrielle (EPI) led by Christopher Descours. Piper-Heidsieck utilizes all three grape varieties allowed for champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier, in varying proportions depending on the different products.
