When it comes to celebrating life's moments of triumph and joy, few beverages can match the elegance and sophistication of champagne. And if you appreciates the finer things in life, then Champagne Piper-Heidsieck is a brand you should have on your radar. With a legacy dating back to 1785, this French champagne house has been producing extraordinary champagnes for over two centuries, captivating the palates of connoisseurs around the world.
Piper-Heidsieck's Rich History
The art of champagne making is a meticulous process that requires a delicate balance of expertise, innovation, and passion. Piper-Heidsieck has mastered this art to perfection. One of their hallmarks is their unique blends, crafted from a harmonious combination of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier, and Chardonnay grapes. It's no wonder that they have received numerous accolades and awards for their superior craftsmanship.
To truly appreciate Piper-Heidsieck, it's important to delve into the rich history of the champagne house. Founded in 1785 by Florens-Louis Heidsieck, a German businessman who settled in France, the company initially operated under the name Heidsieck & Co. With a passion for viticulture and a belief in the art of blending, Heidsieck created the Piper-Heidsieck brand in 1839, setting the stage for the champagne house's enduring legacy.
"I go to bed with a few drops of Chanel N° 5, and I wake up each morning to a glass of Piper-Heidsieck; it warms me up."Marilyn Monroe
Over the years, Piper-Heidsieck has gained worldwide acclaim for its distinctive fresh, elegant, and harmonious taste. It has become a symbol of luxury and celebration, making appearances at prestigious events such as the Cannes Film Festival. Savoring a glass of Piper-Heidsieck is like indulging in a piece of history and immersing oneself in the refined elegance of a bygone era.
A new Era for the Maison
While many chief winemakers have been instrumental in shaping the legacy of Piper-Heidsieck, the brand's future lies in the capable hands of Émilien Boutillat, who joined the family in October 2018 as the chef de cave. At a young age, Émilien has already garnered extensive experience working with renowned champagne houses such as Armand de Brignac. His exposure to diverse winemaking practices across the globe has enriched his skills and expertise, making him the perfect successor to carry forward the Piper-Heidsieck tradition of excellence.
"A magnum is the perfect size for two gentlemen to have over lunch, especially if one isn’t drinking."Winston Churchill
Émilien has now also infused his expertise into the creation of the Essentiel Blanc de Noirs. By blending the distinct qualities of Pinot Noir and Meunier grapes, he reinterprets the Champagne-making tradition with audacious expressions. With delicate freshness and unparalleled skill, Émilien captures the essence of the unconventional while respecting the House's storied identity.
Piper-Heidsieck Essentiel Blanc de Noirs
With the introduction of the Essentiel Blanc de Noirs, Piper-Heidsieck pays homage to its legacy while embarking on an exciting new chapter. This cuvée stands as a testament to the House's commitment to both tradition and innovation. Tasting Piper-Heidsieck's first ever Blanc de Blancs lets us embarking on a sensory adventure. From the delicate notes of yellow fruits that evolve into the rich hues of red and black fruits, to the intriguing accents of smoky honey and paprika, each sip is a symphony of flavors. This cuvée's crisp generosity on the palate, guided by citrus and raspberry undertones, culminates in a finish that is both rounded and tension-filled. Aged for three years with an Extra Brut dosage, the Essentiel Blanc de Blancs unveils a wide array of pairing possibilities to enhance your culinary experiences.
Through the Piper-Heidsieck Essentiel Blanc de Blancs, the House not only introduces a new Champagne but also invites us to explore the delicate balance between history and innovation, tradition and sustainability.

Château Galoupet presents its second vintage since embracing organic farming, following the resounding success of the Château Galoupet Cru Classé Rosé 2021. The latest vintage, crafted entirely from estate-grown vines, is a complex, full-bodied Rosé de Provence boasting a refined mineral finish and remarkable aging potential. Let's discover the magic of Château Galoupet's second vintage since transitioning to Organic Cultivation!
An Exceptional Rosé de Provence
Located in an environmentally conscious and forward-looking estate, Château Galoupet encompasses 77 hectares of protected forest and 69 hectares of certified organic vineyards. It boasts three distinct micro-terroirs and a unique microclimate shaped by the winds blowing between the Massif des Maures, the ancient salterns of Hyères, and the "Golden Islands" off the Côte d'Azur.
Recognized as a Cru Classé de Provence since 1955, the estate traces its roots back to an 18th-century map and lies within the geologically oldest area of the appellation. As a burgeoning biodiversity sanctuary, housing diverse native plants and animals, the team at Château Galoupet strives to produce increasingly refined expressions of the terroir while respecting nature and the environment to the fullest.
The 2021 vintage presented its challenges, but given the weather conditions of 2022, this second vintage rosé is truly a marvel. Due to extremely high temperatures, the grapes ripened ten days earlier than in 2021, leading to an unprecedented early start and end to the harvest in the month of August. However, the harvest was suddenly interrupted by a severe hailstorm, an event not seen on the estate for two decades.
Nevertheless, thanks to rigorous micro-selection from 39 organically cultivated plots and meticulous vinification in 600-liter French oak barrels, the wine reveals different aspects of the terroir. Compared to the 2021 vintage, it is equally expressive, boasting the same well-structured mouthfeel, a long, mineral finish, and intriguing aging potential.
Château Galoupet Cru Classé Rosé 2022
The Aroma: Generous and vibrant, with notes of apricot, wild peach, and complex pastry aromas.
The Palate: Full-bodied, opulent, and intense, with delicate notes of fresh flowers, yellow fruits, almonds, and sweet spices, followed by a touch of honey. A long, complex, and mineral finish.
Blend: Grenache (58%), Tibouren (12%), Syrah (11%), Rolle (11%), Cinsault (6%), Sémillon (2%).
Cellaring Potential: 2-4 years.
At Artworth we believe that the Château Galoupet Cru Classé Rosé 2022 is a truly exceptional wine that harmoniously captures the essence of the estate's unique terroir and organic winemaking philosophy. With its impressive complexity, luxurious mouthfeel, and the promise of graceful aging, it is the perfect companion for moments of indulgence and celebration.

Her influence extends to the very limited edition introduced to us today – the 17 Year Old Legend. A culmination of decades of blending experience, this rare gem beautifully embodies the spirit of Appleton Estate.
Appleton Estate - The 17 Year Old Legend
Created with a unique care, the 17 Year Old Legend pays homage to the historic rum used in the original Mai Tai back in 1944. Joy Spence expertly recreated this legendary profile using four exceedingly rare 100% pot still distillates, which were aged to perfection in just ten carefully selected casks at the Appleton Estate. With only 1,500 bottles crafted globally, the Legend is a testament to the dedication and passion that defines the essence of Appleton Estate.
A Must-Have for Rum Connoisseurs
For those who appreciate rum and collectors alike, the Appleton Estate 17 Year Old Legend is a remarkable treasure, destined to be a cherished addition to any discerning collection. Its exquisite taste, nuanced flavors, and limited availability make it an extraordinary experience that should not be missed.

When art and champagne come together, it's a match made in heaven. The renowned Champagne house Ruinart is proud to present "Promenade(s) en Champagne" by Eva Jospin at Art Basel in Basel. This unique exhibition invites you to embark on a journey through the rich landscapes, history, and craftsmanship of the Montagne de Reims region. All beautifully depicted through the artistic vision of Eva Jospin, a French sculptor. Join us as we take you on a virtual tour of this extraordinary collaboration, celebrating the beauty of the terroir and the craftsmanship involved in creating exceptional wines.
Embark on a Champagne Promenade
Imagine taking a leisurely stroll through the picturesque Champagne region, immersing yourself in its breathtaking landscapes, hidden rituals, and the intertwined vines glistening under the sun. Ruinart's "Promenade(s) en Champagne" exhibition captures the essence of this experience, allowing you to feel a profound connection with the land and its evolution over time.
As the guest artist for Ruinart's Carte Blanche 2023, Eva Jospin presents her interpretation of the Maison's terroir. She perceives the Montagne de Reims as a cross-section of geographical and temporal layers, both real and imaginary. Inspired by the region's richness and historical significance, from the deep-lying crayères (chalk cellars) to the intertwined vine roots, from the coronation of French kings in the Reims Cathedral to Ruinart's elevation to nobility, Jospin invites us to explore this mystical world where history, vegetation cycles, life, and creation intertwine.
A Stop on Art Basel's World Tour
Following its opening event in Paris earlier this year, the Carte Blanche exhibition by Ruinart travels the world, revealing itself to art enthusiasts across different continents. In June 2023, Art Basel in Basel serves as the next destination for this remarkable exhibition.
As part of the global journey, Carte Blanche offers a gastronomic and artistic interpretation through the "Food for Art" program. Eva Jospin collaborates with local chefs, bringing together the culinary delights of the region with her artwork. It's a unique sensory experience that tantalizes both the palate and the imagination. In Basel, she teams up with Les Trois Rois. Here, tables are spectacularly set for the occasion: a setting of history, encounter and conviviality. It's an experience that combines art and gastronomy to celebrate the aesthetics of craftsmanship - in the kitchen, in the wine cellar or in the artistic creation.
Carmontelle by Eva Jospin
At the heart of this year's Carte Blanche exhibition lies Eva Jospin's sculptural landscape, meticulously crafted using her preferred medium - cardboard. Her installation comprises a series of masterpieces, reliefs, drawings, and embroideries arranged around a Carmontelle, reminiscent of the 18th-century era when Ruinart was founded. The Carmontelle, an invention of the Enlightenment era, serves as the narrative architecture of Carte Blanche. It unfolds a story without words, drawing connections between underground crayères, vineyards, nature, architecture, and the artist's handiwork in the studio, mirroring the intricate processes involved in champagne production. The intertwining motif echoes the vine tendrils, symbolizing the sublime connection between these two worlds.
Eva Jospin's "chefs-d'œuvre" are cardboard sculptures that invite us to explore the region in miniature. These intricate pieces, displayed on two levels, juxtapose representations of natural landscapes with architectural forms, paying homage to the historical crayères. The sculptures captivate with tiny staircases that lead us deep into Ruinart's cellars.

London is a city that never fails to impress. With its vibrant culture, rich history, and unmatched fashion scene, it's no surprise that it's a top destination for many travelers. Recently, we visited the city to host our 6th Artworth at Bucherer event, the first one in the United Kingdom.
Our stay started with a good breakfast at White Mulberries at Hay's Galleria. In a city filled with incredible coffee shops and breakfast places, there is a lot to be discovered. White Mulberries has long been a favorite of ours because it obviously serves great coffee but has also an incredible banana bread on the menu.
After getting our coffee fix, it was time for some meetings around town. Driving around with the new Range Rover, we got to see some of the famous sights as well. It is impressive to see how the the City of London is ever evolving.
Luckily, some things don't change. For example the Big Benn and Westminster Abbey. Historical buildings like these never fail to impress us! Which is your favorite sight in London? Send us a message and let us know.

We decided to stay at the Rosewood Hotel during our trip to London. This luxury hotel is centrally located, in the city's Holborn neighborhood, and is renowned for its Scarfes Bar, which boasts an impressive selection of rare spirits.
One evening, we headed to the bar, where we met Martin Siska, a talented mixologist who crafted a delicious cocktail with cognac by Rémy Martin. We were thoroughly impressed with his expertise and enjoyed our drinks immensely.
Offering drawing room conviviality and gentleman’s club sophistication, this bar gives true meaning to the phrase ‘get scarfed’.
