Piper Heidsieck Vintage 2004
Champagne, France

Florens-Louis Heidsieck, the son of a Lutheran minister from Westphalia, founded this famed Champagne house in 1785. Piper-Heidsieck's 2004 vintage is composed of 60 per cent Pinot Noir and 40 per cent Chardonnay. A multi-layered bouquet reveals almond and hazelnut aromas, apricot and rhubarb as well as fragrant floral notes. Fresh and effervescent on the palate, this vintage is pleasantly dry, with just a hint of coconut.
