Terry Jeans rated this wine as 92/100 with the following review:

Toasty, bready apple and citrus on the nose, with a fine balance of acidity and depth. Minerality, acid and slight sweetness make this fantastic for a special occasion and well worth the money.
Jon Steeves rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

The Piper-Heidsieck Brut is 12% ABV, brilliant pale straw, with aromatics of toast, green apple, stone fruit, wet stone minerality. This is a fantastic crowd pleaser and a great wine to have on hand for special occasions and festivities any time of year. Enjoy now, pair with almost anything.
Jennifer Havers rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Great typical aromas including bread, yeast, butter, crisp green apple and lemon. Crisp with fine bubbles promoting the citrus and apple notes on the palate, as well a bit of minerality. Crisp and refreshing. Perfect with oysters or for holiday celebrations.
Monique Sosa rated this wine as 90/100 with the following review:

Loads of fresh orchard fruit (apple, pear, apricot) and wet stone minerality on the nose. Incredibly mouthwatering, crisp and light bodied with a medium-short refreshing finish. Pair with oysters, crab legs or shrimp cocktail. Updated Oct 2016. @sommsosa | Bespoketastongs.ca
Sean O'Regan rated this wine as 91/100 with the following review:

Pale gold, small uniform bubbles, lovely nose with brioche, citrus and apple. Fine mouse on the palate, dry with biscuit/bread notes, lemon citrus, apple and toast. Beautiful Champagne

Ashley Quesnel rated this wine as 89/100 with the following review:

This is clean and fresh with the typical aromas of mineral, citrus and baked bread that one would associate with champagne. A great introductory champagne.

Natalie's Review

Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne, Champagne A.O.C., France: One of the best values for non-vintage Champagne on the liquor store shelves. Crisp and toasty, robust and muscular. This is a terrific party bubbly for discerning guests. Pair with fried foods or shellfish. 462432 12% XD 750 mL  $59.95 Score: 91/100. October 10, 2016 Top Rated Sparkling Wine.
