Liz Palmer Champagne ReviewThis is Baron-Fuenté’s top wine. Light gold hue with expressive nose intermixing aromas of pear, nuts and citrus fruit; the palate is well-balanced; the minerality is palpable with a zingy edge and lemon-zest flavors which flow through to a long palate.
This fruity well-balanced champagne will be ideal with turbot and dill, lemon-pie or excellent as an aperitif.
Variety: 100% Chardonnay
Sugar Content: 6 g/L
Sweetness Descriptor: XD – Extra Dry
Style: Rich & Complex

Piper-Heidsieck is launching a cuvee this September aimed at the champagne connoisseur and will be exclusive to the UK on-trade and select wine merchants.
Essentiel is a low-dosage offering at 5g/l compared to the Brut NV at 9/10g/l, and has received an additional 12-18 months of ageing. Additional information will be displayed on the label, such as, disgorgement and cellaring dates which will communicate that extra level of detail to an engaged champagne audience.
Chef de Caves, Régis Camus states:
“I am proud of this Extra-Brut cuvée which symbolises the essence of our champagnes. This extra-aged and lower dosage wine is the pure expression of Piper-Heidsieck style: a structured, crisp and ardent wine.”
Winemakers tasting notes: bright, crisp and firm, you can expect notes of citrus, grapes, crisp apple, almond and salinity.
Price – GBP37.99 (US$49) per bottle
