'Fresh, lively, fruity and precise, Piper is a reliable champagne at a great price, and I recommend it all the time for weddings, parties, anything. The house has fulfilled its mandate to grow this cuvee into a more serious, textural and complex offering, thanks to longer lees age than ever, though balances this marvellously and unexpectedly with more bright fruit integrity and tension than before. Pinot noir takes the lead, laced with fresh, fruity red apple and strawberry hull, with the lemon zest of chardonnay contributing tension and a touch of struck flint adding complexity. Lees age brings plenty of toasty, roast nut, gingernut biscuits, spice and honey character. Refreshingly, bright acid tension is the theme of the finish rather than dosage. Bravo. Rating: 91/100."
