Champagne Piper-Heidsieck Cuvée Sublime Demi-Sec (Gift Boxed)

Piper-Heidsieck's Cuvée Sublime is on of Champagne's best loved Demi-Secs. The Pinot Noir, Meunier and Chardonnay grapes for the 'Cuvée Sublime' blend are sourced from over 50 carefully selected and sustainably farmed 'crus' in the Champagne sub-regions of Montagne de Reims, Côte des Blancs, Aube and Vallée de la Marne. The grapes from each separate 'cru' were vinified separately to preserve their unique characters and allow for maximum blending options. The grapes were very gently pressed to yield a very clear juice and then the first fermentation took place in stainless-steel tanks. Once complete, the wines were racked and underwent full malolactic fermentation. At this point the wines were blended with at least 25% reserve wines, and then bottled with selected yeasts added to begin the second fermentation. The wine was kept on its lees for a minimum of three years before disgorgement, when a dosage of 35g/l was added. Pale gold in colour. On the nose, the 'Cuvée Sublime' reveals complex aromas of tropical fruits and roasted pineapple alongside notes of vanilla, caramelised pear and freshly toasted brioche. A vibrant acidity on the palate perfectly balances the sweetness and a fine-beaded mousse carries the flavours onto the lingering finish.
