Piper-Heidsieck Brut Vintage

Piper-Heidsieck Brut Vintage 2006

The 2006 growing season in Champagne was difficult, with a very hot summer followed by violent hailstorms just before harvest. Despite the less than ideal conditions, Piper-Heidsieck created this elegant and charming blend of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay with fruit harvested from 17 grand and premier crus. A crystal-clear pale yellow with aromas of dried apricots, berries and spice, the Brut Vintage 2006 is bold and intense with a long, harmonious finish.
