Piper-Heidsieck was founded by Florens-Louis Heidsieck in 1785 in Reims, the heart of France’s Champagne region. The estate’s name was changed to include “Piper” in 1838 when two of the founder’s nephews, one with the last name of Piper, took over the company. In the 1980s the estate was purchased by the Remy Cointreau group and today it is owned by EPI, a private holding company of French luxury goods. About 420,000 cases are produced a year and the estate makes vintage and non-vintage crus.
Stored on it’s side in a climate controlled cellar since purchase.
A few label scuffs as can be expected from it’s age.
Fill level, color and clarity look great.
