Please join Bern’s Fine Wines & Spirits on Wednesday September 11th from 6:00-7:30pm for a seated tasting featuring Piper-Heidsieck Rare Champagne.
Over the last forty years, Rare Champagne has only declared nine vintages, the most demanding in Champagne, and all in limited production. Brand Ambassador Jonathan Boulangeat will be joining us and guiding us through the history and wines of this most prestigious Champagne house.
Five Cheeses from Élevage will be paired with the wines, along with house made breads. The price is $45.00 per person. Reservations are requested, please book your ticket by clicking the link.

2002 Piper-Heidsieck Brut Vintage Rare $149.95
Impeccably balanced and silky, with finely honed acidity shaping the expansive flavors of toasted brioche, crushed blackberry, lemon preserves and honey, revealing hints of Frangelico liqueur and smoked nut. Rich and vivid, with a lasting finish. Drink now through 2027. -97 points Wine Spectator
2007 Piper-Heidsieck Rare Rose $449.95
The salmon colored 2007 Rosé Millesimé Rare has a clear, fresh, slightly oaky-nougat and pretty vinous bouquet. It is a rich and slightly sweetish yet pure, refined, elegant and well-structured Rosé Champagne with good grip and tension as well as a long, intensely aromatic and powerful finish. This is great and enormously complex Champagne with an extraordinary, complex finish. The 2007 is based on 56% Chardonnay and 44% Pinot Noir. -96 points Robert Parker
1998 Piper-Heidsieck Brut Vintage Rare Magnum $428.95
A beautifully bright and expressive Champagne, with precision and vivid acidity throughout; roasted coffee bean and graphite notes lead to a rich palate of toasted brioche, crystallized honey, bergamot and crème de cassis. Exotic ground spice details of cardamom, ginger and anise show on the finish. Tasted from magnum. Drink now through 2030. -98 points Wine Spectator
Piper Heidsieck Cuvee Sublime NV $49.95
A dessert wine, with sweet vanilla flavors wrapped around nutty, oily flavors. Fruit is not the object here; it's more decadent, with unctuous, sweet and lingering vanilla and Bourbon-barrel accents. -91 points Wine Enthusiast
