Piper Heidsieck Brut NV
The arrival of the late great Daniel Thibault transformed Piper-Heidsieck beyond recognition. The style is now fuller and rounder with elegance and charm. The cepage is an equal blend of all 3 varieties and shows good balance and length. The wine is a fresh aperitif style which is much finer than is often given credit for. Marilyn Monroe famously declared that she went to bed every night with Chanel No5 behind her ears and woke up every morning with a glass of Piper-Heidsieck.
Duperrey Champagne Premier Cru Brut (6-pack) NV
Forget those mass produced Champagnes from obscure vineyards. Champagne Duperrey is sourced from 100% Premier Cru vineyards, unbelievable for this price! This Premier Cru is fresh and full flavoured with a crisp dry finish. It shows fine balance between the elegance of the Chardonnay, and the roundness and fruitiness of the Pinot Noir. The palate lingers, with floral, dried fruit and brioche notes.
