Piper-Heidsieck, whose champagne is synonymous with elegance and success, is today a Maison that produces more than 6 million bottles per year and it is a consolidated brand in the Italian market, so wished in the 1960s and 1970s to be the brand sold. Indeed, in 1785, the birthday of the Maison, its founder Florens-Louis Heidsieck was moved by a great ambition to create a cuvée worthy of a Queen. Legend tells that in a very short time this woven merchant, from Westphalia after decided to learn the art of winemaking, managed to create a champagne that was so worthy of note that personally presented it to Queen Maria Antonietta. Immediately his name became synonymous with a high-quality champagne whose reputation spread throughout the region to gain the favor of the Royal Court. From the Habsburg principles to the Chinese emperors, 14 Royal and Imperial courts decided to make the Maison their "authorized supplier". The high society around the world aspired to "Piper Heidsieck". Official Champagne at the Cannes Film Festival since 1993 and the Hollywood Oscar Night, has always been loved by movie stars. Over time, Piper-Heidsieck has also linked to the world of fashion and luxury: Jean-Paul Gaultier, Viktor & Rolf and Christian Louboutin are just a few names that have collaborated with Maison to create extraordinary packaging that has remained in history; like the bottle drawn in 1885 by Carl Fabergé - jeweler of the tsar - to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Maison: a bottle made of gold, diamonds and lapislazuli. Piper-Heidsieck's reputation is backed by the quality of its wines, which in recent years has grown further thanks to Chef de Cave Regis Camus. Since 2002, the prestigious Cuvée of the Maison has been created by him and has led him to be awarded the Best Chef of Cave of the Year by the International Wine Challenge eight times in 2004 and then consecutively from 2007 to 2013. All the "Rare" Cuvée by Piper Heidsieck are produced only when nature unleashes its exceptional strength. "Rare 2002" is an extraordinary, very pure and harmonious cuvée; a deep but delicate wine.
