Chardonnay Champagne Reims France
The Blanc des Millenaires Brut Vintage by Charles Heidsieck is a Blanc de Blancs made solely from Chardonnay, produced in very small quantities and only in years of exceptional quality. To make this Blanc de Blancs, Charles Heidsieck retained only five vineyards from the Côte des Blancs known for their capacity to evolve and mature. The Blanc des Millenaires is aged in contact with the lees for a minimum of 10 years, producing an impeccably accomplished quality wine. A superior Champagne which is both subtle and intense.
From 1852 in search of new markets, Charles Heidsieck crossed the Atlantic four times heading to the New World. His sense of business and his personality made him famous under the name of Champagne Charlie. Today, with a full confidence in the quality of its Champagnes and their potential for ageing, Charles Heidsieck lays down exceptional wines in its Gallo-roman cellars. Cellared or vintage wines will have been matured for as long as 19 years before sediment removal and an additional ageing of several years. The heritage of Charles Heidsieck is now available to lovers of fine wines seeking an unforgettable experience.
A fine gold, deep straw yellow colour, a nice cordon for a very brilliant wine. Floral first impression with violet aromas followed by smooth, fruity nuances of apricot and quince preserve. A touch of fresh fig followed by a warm finish marked by cappuccino cream and liquorice, the finish develops between hazelnut and lavender, honey and quince. An elegant and distinguished wine, with distinct freshness, cellared at the Heidsieck caves at Reims, pure nectar after almost two decades of maturity.
