Vinous 91 points - (55% Pinot Noir, 30% Pinot Meunier and 15% Chardonnay; no dosage; L130629 3872): Dark, lurid pink--almost red, actually. Ripe red berries, cherry pit and tangerine on the deeply scented nose and in the mouth. In a plush, open-knit style, but with dusty mineral and bitter quinine notes adding back-end cut and grip. Rich yet dry and taut, finishing with very good thrust and echoing minerality.
A blended Rosé added to the great Piper-Heidsieck Cuvée Brut classic blend is a generous champagne. A great, not so classic, structured, full-bodied Champagne, with more than just a hint of red fruits and elaborated with a majority of Pinots Noirs, wines from over 100 crus, and Pinots Meuniers from the Grande et Petite Montagne de Reims.
A brisk, original and juicy wine which simultaneously offers black cherry, blackberry, pink grapefruit and blood orange notes. This structure and fruitiness is enriched with warm, spicy notes of Espelette pepper, tea and liquorice.

|Brut Rose is an assemblage of 50 growths blended in the same way as cuvée Brut. Then a small proportion
of red wine from the Champagne region is added to give the wine its colour and fruity flavour... A perfect
balance is achieved over the course of slow ageing in Piper-Heidsieck’s chalk cellars.

|Piper-Heidsieck Brut Rosé champagne is ideal for a refined dinner, just as it is for a romantic supper for
two. It goes wonderfully with red fruit desserts and is perfect as a summer aperitif.
