Piper-Heidsieck Rose Sauvage in Ice Jacket
A charming wine with delicate and enchanting accents. It gives an impression of youth and vigour but also tenderness and serenity. Based on a blend of about fifty crus; the same approach to blending as that of the Brut Cuvee, with the addition of a proportion of red Champagne wine, which gives this wine not only a style typical of Piper-Heidsieck but also a distinctive color and fruity taste. The harmony of the blend develops during a long maturing process lasting at least thirty months in the Piper-Heidsieck chalk cellars.
On the eye: An intense color, a clear and deep pink.
On the nose: The first impression is fresh, suggesting the high spirit and vivacity typical of the Piper-Heidsieck style. It has a strong aroma of red fruit, dominated by the Morello cherry. This is followed by a fragrant harmony of citrus fruit, mandarins and blood oranges. The final impression leaves a hint of cinnamon.
On the palate: A lively, generous and intense wine. Its freshness is expressed by the slight tartness of red fruit, which then mellows with the aromas of macerated fruit and red plums. The final sensation is exuberant and warm.
It can be drunk as an aperitif and served at a cocktail party, garden reception, an all-night party lasting until dawn, an intimate tête-à-tête or a gathering of friends. It is also ideal for a sophisticated dinner party. In the kitchen, it can be used to prepare fish and chicken, and desserts based on red fruit.
