Piper-Heidsieck Rare Rose 2007 in Gift Box

$429.99

A very limited release of the first ever prestige cuvee rose from the House of Piper-Heidsieck provides a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for fine wine collectors. Bold and sensual, its minerality pays tribute to the pure fresh style of Rare Champagne. Few Houses dared to make a 2007 vintage because of the difficult and risky weather conditions.

TASTING NOTES

On the eye: A golden pink color with glints of copper and rose petals, reminiscent of the colors of 19th-century Orientalist painters. Effervescence is regular and beaded.

On the nose: Light and distinguished, the nose begins with spring notes of chlorophyll, tangerine and Oriental spices before aromas of crisp Napoleon cherry and wild strawberries emerge, giving way to a final slightly smoked bouquet.

On the palate: The taste of red fruits flourishes against an elegant minerality, then merges into notes of spices, pomegranate, vanilla and passion fruit with a dash of paprika. Long and persistent with the vibrant finish, peppered with accents of gingerbread, mocha and liquorice, followed by Persian scents of sandalwood and rosewood. A generous, full-bodied and refined wine.
