The PIPER-HEIDSIECK Maison was founded by Florens-Louis Heidsieck in 1785 and is one of the 10 oldest Maisons de champagne. It has outlived eras and governments, survived wars, dreadful harvests and the vagaries of winemaking, while remaining a family business. This extraordinary resilience, demonstrated for more than 200 years by families with determination, has made it an exceptional Maison. The PIPER-HEIDSIECK Maison owns precious wine-growing land from the Montagne de Reims to the Côte des Bar. However, the majority of the hundred growths used for the blending of its signature cuvée, a full bodied wine, come from growths carefully chosen from those most representative of the diversity grown in Champagne.
