About the Producer
Founded in 1785 by Florens-Louis Heidsieck, Piper-Heidsieck is among France’s oldest Champagne houses and soon after its inception became a firm favourite of Marie Antoinette, and centuries later Marilyn Monroe. In 1823 the house was taken over by Christian Heidsieck and Henri-Guillaume Piper, a formidable duo who managed to receive Royal Warrants from 14 royal and imperial courts and created the name Piper-Heidsieck. Currently in the hands of wine-maker Emilien Boutillat, the philosophy of Piper-Heidsieck is simple – preserving the quality, elegance and style that got the house where it is now.
