Since its founding in 1785, the House of Piper-Heidsieck has proven its innovative prowess in selecting and blending wines of exception. A quest for excellence and open-mindedness are reflected in the entire range of champagnes created by Chief Winemaker Emilien Boutillat.
ESSENTIEL, The quintessence of the House style
Precise, Accomplished, Balanced
Essentiel is a multi-vintage cuvée featuring a blend of 3 varieties. Its magnificent structure, balance and freshness ensure that this Extra Brut represents the iconic style of the House.
The Essentiel collection comprises champagnes whose complexity and profile meet the strict demands of fine cuisine and the most exacting of wine enthusiasts. The deliberate decision to extend the ageing period, use Extra Brut dosage and provide transparent information are the intended consequences of this philosophy.
45% Pinot Noir, 36% Meunier, 19% Chardonnay, with 23% of Reserve Wines. Extra-Brut.
