More boldly yeasty than the brut, the non vintage Piper-Heidsieck Extra Dry has an intriguing note of coconut in the nose; a more approachable, less austere, style.
Off-dry, lending a roundness and lushness to the toast and honey flavors. Balanced on the soft side, if you like a touch of sweetness in your bubbly, this is the ticket.
Piper-Heidsieck is a Champagne house from the Champagne region of France. Founded by Florens-Louis Heidsieck on July 16, 1785 in Reims, the Heidsieck name was combined with the Piper name in October 1839. In the late 1980s, Piper-Heidsieck became part of the Rémy Cointreau wine and spirits group, and was sold in 2011 to EPI (Européenne de Participation Industrielle), a privately owned holding company of French luxury brands.
