95pts Wine Spectator Magazine

Piper-Heidsieck Champagne Rare 1999, NJ Wine CentersA nicely toasty Champagne, with lots of smoke, brioche, lemon peel, honey, dried apricot and roasted nut flavors. Firm acidity provides a lovely freshness and framework, and it’s seamlessly integrated with the flavors and refined texture. Features more nut and smoke notes on the long, lingering finish. Drink now through 2024. 150 cases imported.

Regis Camut, the wine maker at Piper-Heidsieck, has won winemaker of the year at the International wine awards in London in 2004 and again in 2007. The care and attention he puts into the Champagnes culminates in the blending of Cuvée Rare. Mainly made from chardonnay from the Montagne de Reims, this Champagne is rich and pure with biscuits, floral notes and apple on the palate.
