Winemaker's Notes:

In 19th century Russia, gentleman patrons celebrated a ballerina's triumphant performance by raising her champagne-filled slipper in a toast. Scandalously, this tradition was adopted at the Folies Bergère in Belle Époque Paris, where the revelry of the dancers and their admirers often transcended just the dancing.

Piper-Heidsieck has resurrected this tradition with Le Rituel by Christian Louboutin. A marvelous crystal stiletto champagne flute by this master shoe designer stands on a translucent sole saturated by his iconic red hue of seduction, which perfectly pairs with the renowned red label of Piper-Heidsieck Brut in this extraordinary gift set.

Available in extremely limited quantities and at the price of $500, only a fortunate few will have the pleasure

About Piper-Heidsieck:

The 'Piper' style plays on a register of freshness, vivacity and fruitiness. Piper-Heidsieck wines are joyful, youthful champagnes, with aromas of citrus and pip fruits contributing to their sense of liveliness. Consumers are pleasantly surprised when they taste these wines for the first time. If they were to be defined as a fragrance, they would be described as belonging to the Floral-Fruity-Fresh perfume family. These are wines that ring true, with great appeal yet good, clear-cut structure. The Cuvée Brut blend is made of around fifty crus, with not one jarring note allowed, since the final flavor should be one of simplicity and pleasure. Pinot Noir grapes from the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Bars areas add strength to the structure while Chardonnays from the Côte des Blancs and the Sézannais vineyards provide floral nuances following on to an exciting freshness. Finally, Pinot Meunier from the Vallée de la Marne and the Massif Saint-Thierry areas adds a touch of refreshing fruit. Although it is certainly true that Piper-Heidsieck wines have a strong personality, their harmony is all in subtlety. Cuvée Brut and other more complex champagnes such as Brut Divin, Cuvée Sublime and Cuvée Rare reveal Piper-Heidsieck's different shades of style.
