This rosé is made predominantly from Premier Cru Pinot Noir Grapes grown at Ludes in the heart of black-grape champagne country, whose pretty cherry pink colour leads on to a delectable ripe, elegant, raspberry and strawberry-fruit-charged palate.
A rich and compelling nose of blackberry, blueberries, sandalwood and dried herbs are augmented by layers of plum and cherry, cocoa and graphite. Bold and full bodied, this wine is structured firmly around a solid core of rich fruit, licorice and herbs. Supple, ripe tannins provide ample backbone. The mouth-feel is plush and unctuous while retaining stability and finesse. The finish is extended, with lingering flavors of caramel, sweet oak and chocolate.
Piper-Heidsieck carefully selects fruit from more than 100 of Champagne’s crus to blend the Cuvée 1785. This adds great complexity and dimension to the wine and allows the bold Piper- Heidsieck style to shine through. A majority blend of Pinot Noir provides structure to the composition while Pinot Meunier expands the wine with its brilliant fruit expression and fleshiness and Chardonnay bring elegant tones and acidity. The precious reserve wines create a consistent flavor profile year after year.
"The dress, light straw, is displayed with silver highlights. The nose offers notes of citrus (lemon), spices, bread and pear-tatin. The palate, harmonious and sweet, reveals a condensation of yellow fruits, dried oranges, stone fruits and cake spices. It displays a beautiful purity, suppleness and a tangy freshness. A real pleasure to taste."
Dundee Hills Chardonnay is a mix of all the Chardonnay clones on our property. Whole cluster pressed to mitigate phenolics, delicate aromatics leap out of the glass. Showing notes of ripe pear, candied lemon, and jasmine on the nose, the palate is vibrant yet succulent. Flavors of mandarin orange, baked apple, and ginger along with hints of wet stone fill the front and mid-palate. The initial vibrancy winds down to a long soft finish
