Millésiméé is a blend of chardonnay (70%) from the Montagne de Reims and Pinot Noir matured for over 7 years. In 1976, a year which the Champagne region suffered unprecedented drought, Piper-Heidsieck introduced the Rare prestige cuvee, this 2002 is only the 8th vintage released in the past 30 years
A gold grape vine tiara created by Parisian Jeweller Arthus Bertrand is wrapped around the foot of the distinctive bottle which is packaged in a luxurious cardboard hinged box.
Review and Tasting
Sampled on 24/11/2012
Clear, pale golden with small vigorous mousse.
Green apple, lemon citrus, honey comb and chamomile with fresh kiwi fruit, toasted meringue and bruised mint leaves.
Pleasingly assertive, toasted biscuit, clean lemon citrus and tart gooseberry-like acidity balancing subtle honey sweetness with faint kiwi fruit.
Lemon zesty citrus and subtle brioche and biscuit with slight pecan nut. Tiara bling factor has to be worth half a point.
