Discover the structure of this Champagne
Harmonious balance between the various components of acidity.
Supple, easy-drinking champagne, the acidity doesn't clash with the palate.
Generous champagne with great intensity.
Long on the palate
Champagne aromas linger on the palate.
The texture is round and structured, with great finesse and a long, refreshing finish.
This Cuvée Essentiel has a precise profile, and its aroma expresses itself on greedy notes of plum, brioche, grapefruit and quince compote, then evolves towards fragrances of honey and grilled almonds.

Côte des Blancs,
Montagne de Reims and Sézannais
Piper-Heidsieck works with exceptional vintages mainly located in the Montagne de Reims and Côte des Bar areas, and maintains a privileged relationship with its winegrowing partners, most of whom are independent.
About this house
Born of a meeting, it is above all an eternal love story: the one that will forever unite a Champenoise, Agathe Pertois, and Florens-Louis Heidsieck. The spirited, ambitious young German wanted to create a cuvée worthy of a queen, which he did in 1785, placing his champagne at the feet of Marie-Antoinette.
Two centuries later, history continues and one of the most prestigious champagne brands continues to strengthen its legend. Committed to biodiversity, this ancient Champagne House has been VDC and HVE certified since 2015.
Between Champagne and its dish
This Essentiel Extra Brut champagne is ideal with appetizers or parmesan shortbread to start a meal with friends on a fresh, powerful note.
Pair this Extra Brut Champagne with fish or shellfish starters, such as scallops with creamy Parmesan risotto, or a verrine of Champagne lentils with shallot vinaigrette.
This Cuvée Essentiel Extra Brut is the perfect accompaniment to fish and poultry dishes. Try it with free-range poultry, butternut, pumpkin and praline, or Turbot with beurre blanc sauce.
Arnaud Tabarec, restaurant chef at the prestigious Five Seas Hotel in Cannes, has chosen to combine the sweetness of mackerel with the enveloping character of the Essentiel Blanc de Blancs cuvée... He recommends a Maquereau cuit au sel, brûlé sur un galet niçois, bonito broth with parsley condiment and caviar from France
"This dish retraces my journey. Mackerel from Brittany, where I'm from, parsley purée from Burgundy, where I grew up, local Nice pebbles, heated in the oven and used as a baking tray, with a hint of iodine, not forgetting bonito from Asia, a region of the world I'm particularly fond of."
