A blended Rose added to the great Piper-Heidsieck Cuvee Brut classic blend is a generous champagne. A great, not so classic, structured, full-bodied Champagne, with more than just a hint of red fruits and elaborated with a majority of Pinots Noirs, wines from over 100 crus, and Pinots Meuniers from the Grande et Petite Montagne de Reims.

On the palate:
A brisk, original and juicy wine which simultaneously offers black cherry, blackberry, pink grapefruit and blood orange notes. This structure and fruitiness is enriched with warm, spicy notes of Espelette pepper, tea and liquorice.
"The darkest wine of the tasting; lush raspberry and cherry nose; bright, juicy and fresh with ripe fruit and lovely acid structure; long and vibrant. 55%-60% Pinot Noir, 20%-25% Pinot Meunier, 10%-15% Chardonnay. "
"Hints of roasted hazelnut and toasted brioche add richness to this refined and creamy rosé, partnered with juicy acidity and layers fruit-forward black currant, dried strawberry, licorice and smoke. Spiced finish. Drink now through 2018."
