Champagne Charles Heidsieck Overview
+
Charles Heidsieck's prestige cuvée is a blend of pure Chardonnay from just five different Crus: Avize for verve and minerality; Cramant for complexity and ageability; Le Mesnil-sur-Oger for balance; Oger for creaminess and weight; and Vertus for floral freshness. An absolute masterpiece from the Côte des Blancs, this cuvée spends more than fifteen years maturing in the heart of Charles Heidsieck's two-thousand-year-old chalk cellars. Such an outstanding creation deserves an exceptional case: the gift box, which mirrors the curves of the crayères cellars after which it is named (Blanc des Millénaires, or 'White of Millenia'), echoes the nobility of this location where nothing counts except time itself.

Tasting note: The first universally declared vintage since 1990, 1995 had generally good conditions throughout the summer and autumn, meaning grapes were harvested in prime condition. This was a fresh and balanced vintage, producing wines of excellent ageing potential. A rich golden colour, the bouquet expresses buttery and vanilla aromas. The palate is rich and complex with notes of pineapple and ripe white fruit flavour. This tastes surprisingly young, displaying all the characteristics of a mature Chardonnay and has incredible potential for ageing. Simply exceptional! Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires 1995 is a seriously voluptuous champagne.

“An amazing bouquet of gunpowder, coffee and toasted almonds. The palate is a super refined balance of nutmeg, white chocolate & mocca with an acidity that delineates it all beautifully with its flintiness. Great purity and length!”

“Vivid gold. Heady aromas of candied citrus fruits, flowers, truffle, gingerbread and iodine, with an intensely smoky overtone. Deep, pungent and palate-staining, with the orchard and pit fruit flavors reaching every corner of the palate and showing impressive power without any excess weight. Even more extroverted than last year's release, finishing with excellent cling and lingering smokiness.”

“Deep, pure and fresh on the fruit-intense and complex nose, the 1995 Blanc des Millenaires is still young and incredibly fresh on the palate. This is refreshingly pure, concentrated, fruity and perfectly round Champagne that reveals a great tension and mineral complexity. It also has a long and salty finish. Keep it for ten or 20 years.”

“Stunning, come-hither toast, vanilla and coffee nose with white and tropical fruit richness. Powerful, mellow, mature palate with oily smoothness and the softest texture. Long and dense. Fully mature and impossible not to like.”

“A mouthwatering Champagne, refined and satiny in texture, with a citrusy overtone to the flavours of apricot preserves, toasted hazelnut and brioche, crystallized honey and fleur de sel. Presents a lasting, smoke-and spice-finish.”
