The elegance of a harmonious Brut by Charles Heidsieck

The estate

An essential reference for great Champagne wines, the Charles Heidsieck House maintains a prestigious heritage with two thousand year old chalk pits. The pioneering Charles Heidsieck began to distinguish itself from the end of the 1980s through showcasing its multi-vintage Brut champagne’s exceptional capacity for aromatic evolution. In 1987, Charles Heidsieck was the first Champagne house to indicate its “cellaring” year to follow the evolution of the wine over time.

The vineyard

The Charles Heidsieck Champagne House owns a vineyard of around 60 hectares in Marne and Aube. This vineyard has received sustainable viticulture and High Environmental Value certifications. In addition to its own vineyard and through following the Champagne model, Charles Heidsieck supplements its vineyard with long-term supply contracts with rigorously selected wine-growers and cooperatives.

The wine

The Brut Reserve Charles Heidsieck is a multi-vintage champagne, another one of the house’s prestigious cuvees.

Winemaking and aging

Patiently produced with the talent and know-how of the house’s Cellar Master, the Brut Reserve Charles Heidsieck gains in finesse and elegance during 36 months of aging, spent in the shade and coolness of the House’s chalk pits.

Blend

Embodying the quintessential style of the Charles Heidsieck house, the Brut Reserve is the fruit of a blend of 60 crus, bringing Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay together in equal parts. 40% reserve wines aged by around 10 years on average, ensuring the wine’s unique complexity.

Tasting

Color

This champagne seduces with its deep golden color, which highlights the finesse of its effervescence.

Nose

The complex and delicious nose opens on beautiful notes of brioche, evolving with touches of roasted coffee. Harmonious and beautiful fruity nuances ranging from sun-kissed fruits (mango, apricot, mirabelle plum) to nuts (pistachio, almond).

Palate

The greatly precise palate envelops through a succession of fruity aromas alongside a deliciously crunchy texture similar to a thin layer of brittle. Persistent and flavourful, the finish seduces with its notes of praline and vanilla. A harmonious, full-bodied and elegant champagne by Charles Heidsieck.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Based on the 2014 vintage, complemented by fully 40% old reserve wines, the new release of Charles Heidsieck's NV Brut Réserve was disgorged earlier this year. It's showing very well, opening up in the glass with notes of green apple, dried white flowers, pear, candied peel and walnuts. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a textural attack and a racier, tighter-knit core than either the 2012- or 2010-base renditions, displaying good concentration and underlying richness. This is a bottling that continues to punch above its weight and which both merits and rewards a few years in the cellar before opening.
