product Details

Piper Heidsieck Demi-Sec NV Champagne

A demi-sec - or lighly sweet - non-vintage Champagne from Piper-Heidsieck.

The additional label, just above the main front label states "Fornitore Di S.S. Pio XI" (We are informed that this translates as "By Appointment to Pope XI").  Given that to date there have been 266 Popes, we are further informed that this refers to Pope Pius XI who served between the years of 1922 and 1939.  This bottle is therefore both very old and very rare.

This bottle is in good condition: light cosmetic damage to label/seal; cork/closure secure, no leakage.

Important Notice

We would recommend viewing/close inspection prior to placing any bids. If this is not an option and you have questions beyond the offered description and images, please contact us for a more in-depth condition report. Otherwise lots will be sold as seen in the images.

Please note: Due to the various ages of bottles and their seals, condition of liquid is at the buyer's discretion and no claim can be lodged against failure/leakage in transit.
