Review: Piper Heidsieck - Rare - 1998
Submitted: 30th July 2023
This Champagne is just as a small young child as entered Willy Wonka's chocolate factory - It's all you could have ever wished for! Certainly one of the best from Piper-Heidsieck.
Tasted the magnum during a sit down dinner at the Ritz, London so certainly the superior taste from the larger bottle size and superb surroundings added to the overall tasting experience.
A fine example of a vintage Champagne, toasty notes, fresh and crisp yet smooth, fine bubbles.
Nose: Lightly toasted bread, apricot skin, citrus, white floral.
Mouth: Toasty, yellow stone fruits, lemon candy, white floral, touch of white pepper.
