Elegant, with rich base notes of toasted brioche and smoke adding depth, this integrates finely honed acidity, detailed texture and flavors of black cherry puree, apple tarte Tatin, kumquat and grated ginger. Provides a creamy, mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2022. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

Even though this wine is comprised of over three-quarters black grapes, it shows a great deal of elegance and lightness; the pale yellow gold color and stone fruit nose is followed by a bright citrus-dominated palate; a long finish with the lively freshness continuing for some time.

92 pts.: November 15, 2014

Vibrant acidity and flavors of toasted brioche, crushed blackberry, candied ginger and salted almond ride the fine, satiny texture of this harmonious Champagne, which features a fresh, graphite-tinged finish. Drink now through 2020.

This medium-gold sparkler shows off a wonderfully full bouquet redolent of fresh bread dough; luscious on the palate, with plush fruit flavors of honeydew melon and tart citrus, all nicely framed by firm acidity.

Toasty aromas leap from the glass in this deliciously mature wine. It is soft but still very dry, with acidity tamed by both fine, mature fruit and a creamy texture that sits well in the mouth. This is a very fine, tasty wine.

Firm and lightly toasty, this offers ripe flavors of quince paste, candied orange peel, grilled nuts and ground ginger. Shows fine balance and a pleasant juiciness that builds to the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2020.

91 pts. : November 30, 2009

A fresh, medium-bodied style, this shows finesse, with notes of apple, peach, ruby grapefruit, vanilla and toast. The refined texture and vibrant structure keep this focused and lingering, with fine length. Drink now through 2012.

91 pts. : January 15, 2003

This enticing blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay and Pinot Meunier undergoes malolactic fermentation and a minimum of three years aging to soften its attack, resulting in an appealing roundness and harmony. Piper-Heidsieck’s winemaker Daniel Thibault died earlier this year, his longtime assistance, in now winemaker.

91 pts. : November 15, 2003

A gorgeous, toasty nose leads to candied citrus, honey and toast flavors in a medium-bodied, sumptuous profile. Very accessible and full of warmth and personality, with fine length. Drink now.

91 pts. : November 15, 2005

This is creamy, enticing and bursting with honey, vanilla, hints of coffee and candied berry flavors, all matched to a rich texture and firm structure. Fine length and harmony, with time to give. Drink now through 2010.

91 pts.: November 15, 2013

Smoke and toasted brioche notes ride a lively bead in this well-cut Champagne, layered with pastry cream, poached apple, fresh ginger, honey and yellow plum flavors. Lightly creamy throughout, with a hint of fleur de sel on the finish. Drink now through 2020.

The quality of this nonvintage wine from Piper-Hedsieck is a sign of the increasing quality of the range as a whole. It’s a wine that hovers comfortably between freshness and maturity, between a soft dosage and crisp fresh apples. This bottling is ready to drink.

90 pts. : December 31, 2007

A pronounced graphite aroma introduces this finely wrought, chiseled Champagne. Lemon verbena, ginger and spice notes weigh in, and the finish is lingering, if tart. Drink now through 2010.

90 pts. : December 15, 2003

Very crisp and somewhat metallic, with a mineral or iron-ore core. On the palate, it opens up with somewhat rounder fruit flavors of tangerine and citrus, but it retains an austere, tightly delineated structure. Elegant and refined.

90 pts. : November 15, 2008

A range of citrus, honey, pastry and ginger flavors mark this appealing Champagne, which is well-knit and smooth, with a fine mousse and a butterscotch finish. Drink now.

90 pts. : Nov/Dec 2006

Green apple and citrus with freshly baked bread aromas; smooth delivery of green apple tinged with caramel and hints of vanilla with a longer than usual finish.

90 pts.: December 31, 2007

This is a particularly mature nonvintage, with toast and secondary flavors of almonds and yeast. The acidity is there, but it is mature and ripe, leaving a wine that lingers softly, beautifully integrated.

90
90 pts. : September 9, 2004

A cuvée based on the 2001 vintage, with 12 percent reserve wines from 1998, 1999 and 2000. An assertive bubbly with citrus, honey and spice flavors. Concentrated and densely textured, with a lively acidity and lingering aftertaste. Its punch comes from Pinot Noir (60 percent), with Chardonnay (25 percent) and Pinot Meunier (15 percent) rounding out the blend.

89 pts. : November 30, 2006

Lacy and graceful, this Champagne builds in intensity as its firm structure and viscous texture frame the honey, mineral and candied berry notes. Drink now.

A generous style of Champagne with buttery, honeyed aromas, a rich texture and nicely mature flavors, strong acidity and a crisp finish.

88 pts.: Nov/Dec 2005

Medium straw. Light gold, with a strong mousse. Smoky, rich and floral on the nose, with suggestions of orange peel, pear and jasmine. Nicely concentrated and moderately weighty, with flavors of lemon cream and buttered toast. Quite long, with the butter and lemon notes resonating.

Ripe pears, crisp green apples and flowers emerge from Piper-Heidsieck’s NV Brut Cuvée. This medium-bodied non-vintage Champagne offers excellent persistence and a long, clean finish. It is a very solid effort at this level. The Brut Cuvée is 55% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay. This is lot L070921 12253, disgorged December, 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008–2010.

Exuberant, showing oyster shell, toast and hazelnut flavors. Also has richness and weight, with just enough acidity to keep it from getting heavy. Drink now.

An open, airy Champagne, backed by a brisk acidity and a tactile feel. This frames the peach, apple and citrus flavors, tightening up on the finish. Drink now through 2013.

Tart green apple fruit flavor holds its balance through a spicy, leesy finish. Delicate and clean, crisp, without a lot of structure or weight. A refreshing aperitif.

83 pts. : October 31, 1997

Straightforward Champagne that’s toasty in aroma, lean and a bit tart in flavor.

: November 1, 1993

…pale yellow color, has a lovely perfume with pleasing nuances of vanilla, citrus and spice. The fresh creamy flavors of spice, vanilla, citrus and tropical fruit are very flavorful, deeply fruity, and have a long finish — a delicious Champagne.

: July 1, 1997

Offers a gorgeous perfume of vanilla, cream and spice-etched apple and citrus. The rich, full, creamy flavors echo the aromas, with excellent length — a lovely, delicious NV Champagne.

: August 1, 1998

Soft, fruity, clean, fresh and flavorful, with balanced sweetness and an expansive finish — very attractive.

: December 1, 1994

…light creamy yellow, with a faint golden hue, reveals a very attractive scent that is faintly floral and laced with spice and vanilla. The lovely, creamy, spice and vanilla flavors are rounded, with a long, clean finish — delightful.

: October 1, 2007

Bright, good mousse. Finely crafted and elegant.

: October 1, 2009

Low key floral nose. Light bodied, racy and very zesty. Good aperitif style.

: January 1, 2009

Crisp, well-balanced, toasty; less fruit than most in this test.
