Piper-Heidsieck N.V. Brut Champagne wine review by (PB)

I purchased this bubbly for our anniversary but opened it one (NW’s) arrival in town for a prelude to our dinner of anti-pasta, Lemon Leek pasta (homemade of course) and BBQ’s Veal chops with a Balsamic sauce.

It has a pretty, light golden hue with nice bubbles, small and voluminous. The bouquet is nutty and this wine is nicely balanced in all ways. It is gentle, but subtly fruity with pineapple hints and solid structure. It is very easy to drink. I paid $35 I believe—a splurge—but a nice one at that. Raise a glass!
