Background

History

“Create a cuvee worthy of a queen”. Inspired by this ambition, Florens Louis Heidsieck founds the house of Piper-Heidsieck in Reims with Marie-Antoinette and the royal courts in mind. Founded in the age of Enlightenment, the elegance and audacity of this great Champagne house led to fourteen Royal courts to choose it as their official Champagne supplier. 1885 - To celebrate Piper- Heidsieck's 100th anniversary, Carl Fabergé designs a bottle of diamonds, white gold and lapis lazulli for the specially created cuvée. 1976 - Extraordinary weather inspires Piper Heidsieck to create the first vintage of Rare. 1985 - To celebrate the 200th anniversary, Van Cleef & Arpels recreate the Fabergé bottle. Valued at $1 million and escorted around the world by armed guards. 2002 - Régis Camus becomes head winemaker. 2006 - Piper- Heidsieck wins Non-Vintage Champagne of the Year IWC. 2012 - Régis Camus wins his 6th IWC Sparkling Winemaker of the Year award (5th in a row.)
