95+ points for me at this point but with SO much upside potential that the rating may seem conservative in 5+ years.

This was the best champagne I ever drank. So many different tones and a finish over a minute. Spectaculair wine.

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.

Beautiful, elegant, and nuanced but with body and intensity, lemon laced minerals, very nice now but it has a lot of life left.

A lovely wine with an initial impact of zesty limes and citrus notes, followed by a tasty front and mid palate of almonds and truffle. Quite a surprise as not many have rated this highly compared to the more popular brands. A very lively drink and quite a good example of a champagne that should last for years to come.
