Piper-Heidsieck, Rare Brut, Champagne, Champagne, France, 2002
Platinum - Best in Show: Best Sparkling over £15
30% Pinot Noir, 70% Chardonnay
A attractively aromatic nose of delicate apples and toast. The palate is elegant and dry with a chalky, mineral subtlety and honeyed citrus fruit that lends body. An accomplished champagne that is rich, yet finely structured. Great to enjoy now.
