Wine Review: This rose colored Champagne from Piper Heidsieck opens with a light strawberry like bouquet. On the palate, this light bodied wine is nicely balanced, smooth, and elegant with dried cherry flavors and a hint of minerality. The finish is dry and refreshing, but subtle. They would pair it with broiled salmon or sushi. Enjoy - KWGTP

Winemaker Notes: The attack is fresh, hinting at vivacity and passion which are characteristics of Piper-Heidsieck style. Strong aromas come to the fore, with red fruits, particularly Morello cherries, dominating. This leads to notes of citrus fruits, mandarin, and blood orange. The final impression introduces a hint of cinnamon. A spirited, lively, full wine. The rosé expresses the slight acidity of red fruit, then mellows and lingers with hints of strawberry, plum, blood orange and a welcome sensation of warmth. The final finish is warm and enthusiastic.
