Piper Heidsieck Rare 2002


We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

A sparkling pale gold color, with green hues. To the nose, a first vegetal and floral impression - honeysuckle, iris, jasmine - complex, though subtle. Notes of vetiver and exotic woods, followed by hints of pepper, and spices such as ginger, cumin and liquorice. The aromas reveal themselves gradually, with fragrances of herbal teas, mint tea, verbena, enhanced by incense. On the palate, a radiant and refined, elegant wine. Tonic, feather-like but rich and dense. Impressions of warm and dry desert plains. A long, delicate finale on notes such as chocolate and tobacco. A veil, lifted by a refreshing breeze in the desert.

Wine SpectatorTogether, he and Kermit blend our Cypress Cuvée (Rouge) and Sunflower Cuvée (Blanc) from his own vineyards, and the other Northern Rhône wines from a selection of Louis' purchases. Louis selects the best parcels he can find, and then Kermit shows up and either has a cuvée bottled unfiltered, or he blends to find the assemblage that satisfies his esthetic criteria.
