Notes From The Winemaker:
The majority of the blend of Piper-Heidsieck signature Cuvee Brut is composed of Pinot Noir. Hand selected parcels of Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay also play important roles in the elaboration of this well-balanced cuvee. Selected reserve wines from preceding years are incorporated into the blend to ensure consistency of style year after year. The blend is aged for minimum 24 months on the lees before release.

Palate: A structured, full-bodied and franc wine. A juicy, fleshy pear and golden grape texture. The finish narrows to citrus and grapefruit flavors. A wine with great fruit, a good mouthfeel and a harmonious balance.

Ratings & Reviews

92 Points & #95 Top 100 Wines of 2019 - Wine Spectator:

"Lithe and vibrant, this graceful Champagne is driven by well-knit, racy acidity, carrying flavors of ripe black cherry, grated ginger, toast point and mineral on the satiny mousse. Drink now through 2022. 222,500 cases made, 29,000 cases imported. —AN

90 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"Piper's nonvintage Champagne is balanced, fruity, fresh and elegant. It is both ripe and crisp with apple fruits, a mineral edge and final fruitiness. Drink now." - RV (12/1/2019)

89 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"(55% Pinot Noir, 25% Chardonnay and 20% Pinot Meunier; L130419 3867): Light gold, with a hint of onion skin. Toasty, lees-accented orange and white peach on the deeply scented nose. Fleshy and open-knit, displaying good cut to its ripe orchard and citrus fruit flavors. Shows a touch of gingery spiciness on the finish, which clings with good tenacity and building smokiness." - Josh Raynolds (January 2015)

James Suckling:
Light green-ish stone fruits and lemon citrus notes on the nose with gently herbal, floral aromas, too. The palate is an easygoing, approachable and sweetly flavored offering, made for simple, early drinking. (Oct 2017)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Piper-Heidieck's NV Brut is a fresh, young and modern cuvée with an open white fruit aroma on the nose intermixed with brioche flavors. Pretty round and elegant in the mouth, this is a very aromatic, but also finesse-full and refreshing blend of Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay. It is quite fruit-intense in the finish - Stephan Reindhardt (Mar 22nd, 2016)
