Champagne Charles Heidsieck Overview
After many years ageing in the unique and ancient Crayères acquired by its founder Charles Heidsieck, Blanc de Blancs reveals itself as a champagne poised between elegance and complexity, with a smooth texture and great length on the palate. Extended ageing on the lees has unlocked the full potential of their aromas. Each vintage has its own signature, its own generous tone.

Weather:1981 is a stunning vintage, but it is rare as a result of drastic climatic variations over the winter,
and springtime frosts that destroyed 25% of the anticipated harvest. Nevertheless, when the grapes were
tasted, particularly the Chardonnays in the white Grand Crus, they were found to be of excellent quality.

This champagne is part of Charles Heidsieck Collection Crayeres, a second late release of vintages direct from their cellars in Reims in October 2018. The releases are very limited quantities and a perfect chance to buy and enjoy champagne with age in its very best condition; just 60 bottles have been released.

News Article: Read about our visit to Charles Heidsieck and tasting with cellar Master Cyril Brun of some of the Collection Crayeres Champagnes here.

Vineyards: Grand Cru | Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger, Oger & 1er Cru Vertus

Tasting Note: A brilliant golden hue with glints of green and yellow. Notes of hazelnut and peanut. Dense and perfectly balanced, the mouthfeel is generous with an incredible crispness. Tautness and full-bodied sensations jostle for position, demonstrating the lively nature of the 1981 vintage.
