Singapore Airlines serving Piper-Heidsieck Brut Vintage 2014
New as of January 6, 2024, Singapore Airlines is serving Piper-Heidsieck Brut Vintage 2014 in business class throughout its network, on all routes that offer champagne.
Now, I’m not going to claim to be a wine critic, but this champagne gets very high scores from most experts, and retails for somewhere around $100 per bottle, making it one of the best regarded and most expensive champagnes you’ll find on any airline in business class.
It’s not yet known for how long Singapore Airlines will be serving this, though the airline lets you look up the menu and wine list for flights in advance, so you can always see what’s expected to be offered on your flight. I think it’s also worth calling out how Singapore Airlines is one of the few airlines to serve the same champagne throughout its network — it doesn’t matter if you’re flying from Singapore to Bangkok or New York.
For context on the carrier’s champagne selection, in late 2021, Singapore Airlines was serving Piper-Heidsieck Brut Vintage 2012 in business class, which was also well regarded. However, that was eventually switched out for Charles Heidsieck and Henriot, before eventually transitioning to NV Piper-Heidsieck Essentiel Extra Brut.
For those who are champagne snobs, this is objectively the best champagne we’ve seen in Singapore Airlines business class in around two years, and should be quite the treat.
Singapore Airlines offers such a great experience
Personally I consider Singapore Airlines to be one of the world’s best airline brands, and to offer one of the best business class experiences out there. This largely comes down to the carrier’s exceptional service, the great food (thanks largely to the “Book the Cook” program), endless entertainment, and even free Wi-Fi.
Ironically, I’d argue that the weak point of the Singapore Airlines business class experience is the seat. While the airline has a few different kinds of business class seats, none of them are industry leading, with long haul seats requiring you to sleep at an odd angle, and lacking padding.
The airline is expected to be introduce a new business class product on its Boeing 777-9s, with the current first delivery expected for 2026 (though that timeline could slip). I feel like Singapore Airlines is going to come up with something exceptional, and I can’t wait. The airline already has one of the world’s best business class products, and I have to imagine the overall experience might just be in a league of its own when the new seats are introduced.
Singapore Airlines has upgraded its business class champagne, as the airline is now serving Piper-Heidsieck Brut Vintage 2014 in business class on all routes. This is one of the best champagnes you’ll find in business class on any airline, so this sure is a treat.
Anyone flying Singapore Airlines business class soon, and looking forward to having a glass?
