Our oenologists' opinion
In the eye, Essentiel By Nicolas reveals a golden and brilliant color with a fine and persistent bubble.
The nose reveals a bouquet of citrus fruits, pears and mineral notes. Complex and precise, this wine offers a beautiful presence and length in the mouth. The finish is fresh on chalky notes.
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.

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 prestige gastronomy and the ambassadors
Domain and appellation
Emilien Boutillat (Cellar Manager Piper-Heidsieck) and the experts Nicolas have combined their expertise to imagine this cuvée with dosing that was tailor-made.
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 component 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, composed by 4 hands, whose balance & dosage sign the personality of this wine.
