As of today

A founding house of the Champagne region, Piper-Heidsieck was created in Reims in 1785 and has always been a favorite among wine lovers. In the last ten years, it has had a major qualitative shift under the impetus of Christophe Descours, its new owner. Since then, the brand has made great strides and has set its sights on a range of champagnes that are resolutely geared towards gastronomy, with less and less dosage and made from rigorous selections only.

A clear ascension of style which is fully reflected in this new range: "Essentiel", which embodies the revival of the house and the quintessence of the Piper style. The deliberate choice of an aging period of more than 36 months on laths, of an Extra-Brut dosage and of a great transparency of information (date of disgorgement and year of harvest are now mentioned on the label) are the assumed consequences of this philosophy of excellence which satisfies the greatest wine lovers from around the world.
