Winemaker Notes

Rose Sauvage, meaning Wild Rose in French, is not your typical Champagne Rose. A high proportion of Pinot Noir results in a bold, deep-hued rosé and a palate that is structured, full-bodied, and yet distinctly elegant. This unique, fruity Champagne, carefully crafted from over 100 crus, is guaranteed to delight all the senses.

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 are enriched with warm, spicy notes of Espelette pepper, tea, and liquorice.

TP 93
Tasting Panel
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.
WS 92
Wine Spectator
This rosé is a light garnet color, with expressive flavors of mulled cherry, mandarin orange peel and smoke, with an aromatic hint of herb riding the satiny mousse. Offers a firm, well-spiced finish. Enjoy this with food, perhaps duck breast.
W&S 90
Wine & Spirits
A powerful, red-fruited Champagne, this needs air to get past its initially rustic feel. As the alcohol and tannins integrate into the wine, it takes on a vinous character with exotic scents of Asian spice and hibiscus. Pour it with tea-smoked duck.

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The NV Rosé Sauvage Brut has a dark salmon color (thanks to the 25% of red wine) and offers an intense, aromatic, almost meaty bouquet of red fruits (red currant, cherries) along with earthy, chalky and yeasty brioche flavors. Vinous indeed on the nose! On the palate, this is a very clear, fresh and aromatic Rosé that comes a long as a sparkling red wine like Trollinger. It's so charming, round and fresh but also dry and well structured. The finish is clear, dry and cleansing, just gorgeous. This is a perfect Champagne to be served with fish, white meat and even barbeque.

Piper-Heidsieck, Champagne, France
Image of winery
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.

Champagne

Associated with luxury, celebration, and romance, the region, Champagne, is home to the world’s most prized sparkling wine. In order to bear the label, ‘Champagne’, a sparkling wine must originate from this northeastern region of France—called Champagne—and adhere to strict quality standards. Made up of the three towns Reims, Épernay, and Aÿ, it was here that the traditional method of sparkling wine production was both invented and perfected, birthing a winemaking technique as well as a flavor profile that is now emulated worldwide.

Well-drained, limestone and chalky soil defines much of the region, which lend a mineral component to its wines. Champagne’s cold, continental climate promotes ample acidity in its grapes but weather differences from year to year can create significant variation between vintages. While vintage Champagnes are produced in exceptional years, non-vintage cuvées are produced annually from a blend of several years in order to produce Champagnes that maintain a consistent house style.

With nearly negligible exceptions, three varieties are permitted for use in Champagne: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Pinot Meunier. These can be blended together or bottled as individual varietal Champagnes, depending on the final style of wine desired. Chardonnay, the only white variety, contributes freshness, elegance, lively acidity and notes of citrus, orchard fruit and white flowers. Pinot Noir and its relative Pinot Meunier, provide the backbone to many blends, adding structure, body and supple red fruit flavors. Wines with a large proportion of Pinot Meunier will be ready to drink earlier, while Pinot Noir contributes to longevity. Whether it is white or rosé, most Champagne is made from a blend of red and white grapes—and uniquely, rosé is often produce by blending together red and white wine. A Champagne made exclusively from Chardonnay will be labeled as ‘blanc de blancs,’ while ones comprised of only red grapes are called ‘blanc de noirs.’

Champagne & Sparkling

Equal parts festive and food-friendly, sparkling wine is beloved for its lively bubbles and appealing aesthetics. Though it is often thought of as something to be reserved for celebrations, sparkling wine can be enjoyed on any occasion—and might just make the regular ones feel a bit more special. Sparkling wine is made throughout the world, but can only be called “Champagne” if it comes from the Champagne region of France. Other regions have their own specialties, like Prosecco in Italy and Cava in Spain. Sweet or dry, white or rosé (or even red!), lightly fizzy or fully sparkling, there is a style of bubbly wine to suit every palate.

The bubbles in sparkling wine are formed when the base wine undergoes a secondary fermentation, trapping carbon dioxide inside the bottle or fermentation vessel. Champagne, Cava and many other sparkling wines (particularly in the New World) are made using the “traditional method,” in which the second fermentation takes place inside the bottle. With this method, dead yeast cells remain in contact with the wine during bottle aging, giving it a creamy mouthful and toasty flavors. For Prosecco, the carbonation process occurs in a stainless steel tank to preserve the fresh fruity and floral aromas preferred for this style of wine.
