Piper is not only one of the world's favourite Champagnes, it's also one of the greatest value-for-money authentic Champagne's available. Created by four time winner of 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge, Regis Camus, this is a crisp and elegant Champagne with a depth and complexity that belies the price.
A sophisticated Champagne, whose quality rests upon Taittinger’s skill to select the region’s finest grapes, using mostly their own vineyards which gives greater control and consistent quality. The delicate Taittinger style is enhanced by using just the first pressings and basing the cuvee on 40% Chardonnay, on average twice the percentage found in most standard cuvees. Three years ageing on the lees brings a complexity and roundness to the wine, making it dry, light and elegant with a fine mousse, fresh citrus fruit and subtle, weightier notes of peach and brioche; Taittinger Brut Réserve characterises the Taittinger house style.
The strength of this golden-label wine is immediately pleasing to the nose while its complexity explodes to the palate. The initial notes of fruit are followed by more discreet aromas of brioche and vanilla when the wine is allowed to the age in the bottle. Veuve Clicquot Brut offers a perfect balance of finesse and forcefulness.
