Champagne Charles Heidsieck Overview
+
*Delivery from Mid-November 2018*

Charles Heidsieck's prestige cuvée is a blend of pure Chardonnay from just five different Crus and always 20% from each: 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.

This champagne is part of Charles Heidsieck Collection Crayeres, a second late release of vintages direct from their cellars in Reims in November 2018. Only 75 of these special edition cases are available worldwide and only 20 cases in the UK.

“1983: Generous, fully mature apricot marmalade, honeycomb and toast nose with a mild mushroom undertone. Full-bodied, oily palate with mild, soft effervescence surviving. Soothing, peaceful, superbly concentrated palate. No longer improving but fully alive. ”

“1985: Strikingly opulent and rich, full of cream-laden coffee character and delicious candy floss notes. The winey, velvety palate shows graceful evolution, the best bottles are perfectly crisp and lively still. Peaking beautifully now but there is no hurry. ”

“1990: Superbly classy and polished wine in the hallmark Charles Heidsieck style. Powerful, intese character with plush, sweet fruit in opulence. Super velvety and seamless with fantastic freshness. Sheer pleasure, truly hedonistic. Peaking with lots of chewy succulent power left. ”
