93 points "By Wine Spectator Piper-Heidsieck Brut Champagne 2000 Score: 93 Country: France Region: Champagne Special Designation: Highly Recommended Issue: Nov 30, 2007 An opulent, energetic bubbly, this has a concentrated essence of vanilla, honey, apricot and citrus notes, with a long finish. The firm structure offsets its richness. A compelling 2000. Drink now through 2018. 20,834 cases made. –BS "

90 points "By Stephen Tanzer 2000 Piper Heidsieck Brut Millesime Vintage Winery: Piper Heidsieck Style: Sparkling Varietal: Chardonnay Region: Champagne By Josh Raynolds Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar , Nov/Dec 07 ($75; L070260 11923 on foil) Bright yellow. Leesy orchard fruit and tangerine aromas are brightened by zesty minerality and a kiss of pungent white flowers. Deep and powerfully concentrated, offering ripe pear and peach flavors along with exotic baking spices. Finishes creamy and long, echoing the smoky lees quality. This shows very good depth and strength. (Remy Cointreau USA, New York, NY) 90 points"
