Piper-Heidsieck Vintage Brut 2008
A blend of 52% Chardonnay and 48% Pinot Noir. Delicate and exotic notes recreate the warmth of the sun’s playful rays, interwoven with the caress of a sea breeze which dances along a faraway beach. As succulent peach and greengage, entwined with floral notes of cherry and hawthorn blossom, create a sensation of lightness, elegance and freedom. A velvety softness - as if brushing against a rose petal - envelops the mouth. Then a delicately sensual and ripe freshness sweeps across your palate, demonstrating this champagne’s liberated character. And to complete this idyllic sensation comes a saltiness accentuated by notes of peppery spices and plums.
