Description & Technical Information
-
After many years ageing in the unique and ancient Crayères acquired by its founder Charles Heidsieck, Brut Millésime reveals itself as a champagne poised between elegance and complexity, with a smooth texture and great length on the palate.

Weather: The 2005 vintage was a warm weather year without complications. An early heatwave in June encouraged flowering, followed by moderate rainfall throughout summer and another heatwave in early September. The heat and rain developed berries rich in sugar and with high acidity levels, rendering 2005 an ideal year to blend a vintage.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | Chardonnay: Avize, Cramant, Oger, Vertus | Pinot Noir: Ambonnay, Mailly
Grape Varieties: 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay
Ageing: 8 years on the lees
Disgorged: Summer 2014
Dosage: 10.8 g/l
Drink: Now to 2030

Tasting Note: Golden in colour, this 2005 boasts an expressive nose with hints of hazelnut. On the palate the acidity is immediately apparent: this is rich, fresh and lively. Given a few minutes it opens up into delicious lemony flavours, a characteristic we've come to expect from 2005. This is a terrific expression of a difficult vintage.
