Piper-Heidsieck Champagne Brut


Happy Valentine's Day lovelies! Don't let the cold get you down this February. Pop open a bottle of real Champagne and relax, you deserve it. 

Created in 1785 by Florens-Louis Heidsieck who aimed to create a wine worthy of a Queen, PIPER-HEIDSIECK is one of France’s oldest Champagne houses and one of the world’s most awarded Champagnes.

I recently tried a bottle of true Champagne from Reims, France which came as a gift in the mail around Christmas time. The flavour of Piper-Heidsieck's Champagne Brut is citrusy fresh, dry and very crisp. I would highly recommend trying it out if you have a special occasion to splurge for.

PIPER-HEIDSIECK Cuvée Brut is a classic, structured, full-bodied Champagne with harmonious balance. The blend is mainly Pinot Noir incorporating more than 100 crus from the Champagne region in France. A clear, golden Champagne, Cuvee Brut’s delicate, fine bubbles result from an extended maturation. A juicy, fleshy pear and golden grape texture, the wine’s finish narrows to citrus and grapefruit flavors.

A signature reusable red insulating sleeve to keep your bottle cold and fresh. 
PIPER-HEIDSIECK, the revered French Champagne house known worldwide for the red of its label and the gold of its wine, recently unveiled the ”Red Carpet Ready” limited edition magnum bottle that will be poured exclusively at this year’s 88th Oscars® ceremony.
