Interesting champagne experience, bought recently from a trusted, local purveyor, fingers crossed it was still alive. Success, and still had some bubbles to share.
Nose has yellow apple peel, shaved ginger, beeswax candle and honey drizzled on recently baked bread.
Palate has warm honey, ginger soda, sugar preserved lemon, medium length finish.
A solid bottle to begin the weekend. — 9 days ago

Good at 55 degrees, but even better at 40! Nose of strawberries, brie, walnut, sourdough bread. Enters with small bubbles, crisp, acidity in check. Crisp red apple, strawberries, hint of young raspberry. Finishes with more rounded edges and creamier notes -- strawberry sorbet! I would have never guessed that this was an 06 Vintage Rose. I think this one has a whole LOT of life left in it and will keep all the other bottles in the back! Went insanely well with a pastrami sandwich with coleslaw and bacon! — 2 days ago
Wow. Have never been a fan of Piper till this. Amazing. Nose of underripe red cherry, red berries, lemon, apricot, papaya, banana, some peach and brioche. Super layered complex. Attack is swift with acid and followed with a layers of bread dough, a bit of oxidation, sour pear. Finish is long but mellow. Can see a bit of the House style with the finish. Excellent bottle. — a month ago
