Profile

The 100% Chardonnay Essentiel Blanc de Blancs Champagne focuses on the House’s emblematic terroirs to produce a wine whose elegance, fruit and structure illustrate the unfailing link between the Champagne Vineyard and Piper-Heidsieck, the most awarded Champagne House of the Century.

To the eye, the delicate effervescence of Essentiel Blanc de blancs lends even more sparkle to the robe’s glittering green glints.

Blending wines from the very best crus produces a luminous bouquet, with a zest of lemon to highlight the freshness of limestone and the savour of fresh brioche.

With its sprightly bubbles, the palate is more fullbodied than the nose, entrancing the mid-palate with a sensual, almost powdery, sensation. Notes of raisins, mirabelle plums and pear, a subtle touch of iodine and superb peppery notes round out the tasting and open the appetite.

Critic Awards

Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs has produced this classic, mineral and tight-textured Champagne. With its low dosage and emphasis on white fruits and structure, the wine is still young and fresh.

Bright light golden colour with a fine stream of bubbles. Fine maturity on the nose, some windfall, dried apple, fig, hazelnut and candied ginger. The palate is ample with a bright freshness, yet mature and seemingly sweet fruit flavours, fresh butter, mango and citrus, bone dry with a supple and creamy texture and a long complex finish.
