Our oenologists' opinion
Fruity and crisp
Yellow colour with glossy green reflections, fine and regular bubbles. Nice open and fresh nose of fresh hazelnuts, almonds, vanilla, brioche and peppermint notes. Good balance, rather nervous, finesse, elegance, frank and straightforward, character on freshness and minerality. Beautiful length on the minerality, rather chalky.
Body ? The body is the way a wine feels inside the mouth. Several factors, such as the alcohol content and the presence of tannins, contribute to the feel of the wine.
Freshness ? The freshness of a wine is defined by its level of acidity. Unlike rounded wines, fresh wines are easy to drink, and are more lively. Acidity plays a necessary part in a wine's structure.
Aging ? All wines do not have the same aging potential. Some are supposed to be consumed at a young age while others must be kept for longer periods of time.
Do you know ?
Expert in quality and advice since 1822, Nicolas naturally chose the Piper-Heidsieck House to work together on an exclusive cuvee: Essential by Nicolas.
Essential represents the very essence of the House of Piper-Heidsieck style, with wines whose complexity and profile meet the requirements of prestigious gastronomy and the greatest ambassadors.
Domain and appellation
Emilien Boutillat (Cellar Manager Piper-Heidsieck) and the experts at Nicolas have combined their expertise to imagine this cuvée with tailor-made dosing.
They tasted both the wines that make up the different dosing liquors but also performed multiple tests, varying both the wines and the amount of sugar composing the liquor.
The dosage, a crucial step that sublimates the blending of a wine, is similar to the spice added by a chef to perfect a dish.
The result is Essential By Nicolas, made by 4 hands, whose balance & dosage signs the personality of this wine.
