To complement our Spring Champagne Dinner, Piper-Heidsieck will be raffling off a Magnum of 1998 Rare as well as a bottle of 2002 Rare!
The raffle is only open those attending the dinner. The raffle is now open to all!
Rare is the prestige cuvée Piper-Heidsieck produce only in exceptional years. It pays homage to the bottle presented to Marie Antoinette in 1785 which was the key that opened the doors of royal and imperial courts around the world to the champagne house.
