Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne Rose Sauvage - 375ml
Wine Spectator: "A deeply-hued, vinous rosé, almost garnet in color, this distinctive version offers dried cherry and currant flavors, accented by delicate dried thyme, graphite and singed orange peel notes. Well-recommended for food, this is firm and lightly chalky in texture, with a lingering, mineral-laced finish. Drink now through 2023. 20,000 cases made, 2,500 cases imported." Nov 2019
Winery: "Its dazzling appearance brings to mind a shiny ruby. Its deep scarlet color - almost poppy red - symbolizing the perfect balance between strength and elegance, comes from the red wines of Les Riceys in the Aube department. In keeping with its color, aromas of dark berry fruits pervade the senses. Imagine blackberry, blackcurrant and strawberry all scattered on a golden platter edged with mandarin orange and finished with exquisite traces of saffron.
Chardonnays from the Montagne de Reims come together with Pinot Noirs of Les Riceys in the Côte des Bar, the most southerly Champagne vineyard. The result is a deeply intense performance that engrosses you from the first sip. With an incisive attack, juicy berry fruits in the middle-palate, spiced and smoked notes in its stunning finale, this champagne is a mischievous delight. Ideal to be served with duck à l’orange and other red meat dishes."
