Description

Charles Heidsieck is a house defined by its blending of many vineyards, the percentage of reserve wine and the average age of the reserve wine, typically 10 years. As a result, the Non-Vintage cuvee is typically toasty and complex and even capable of bottle age. When the NV is this good, it’s a sign that the house is worth investing in, especially with respect to buying their vintage Champagne. In this case only from one year, the fabulous 2005 vintage, a blend of only the top 11 Cru (top villages) of exceptional Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier. 2005 was one of those legendary vintages, combined with the quality of this house, guarantees it will not only delight but offers cellaring potential for up to 10 years and worth every cent.

Smells

alluring aromas of toasted hazelnuts, praline, candied chestnuts, honey all underpinned by red apples and lemon zest.

Tastes

A wonderful combination of richness and toastiness speaking of a warmer season whilst maintaining impeccable balance evident by the clean acid definition giving length and drive. There are generous flavours of roasted apricots, hints of fresh figs interwoven with brioche and nougat. Vintage Champagne typically comes from the very best vineyards of Champagne and really does warrant paying just a little bit more for. Drinking superbly now and for another 10 years or so, serve with your favourite canapes.
