Marks and reviews
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 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.
Celebrating the 200th anniversary of the house, this Champagne Charlie wine comprises a base wine stemming from the 2016 harvest which is supplemented by 80% reserve wines, the oldest of which is 25 years old. The disgorgement was carried out in October 2021. The fruit of the Cellar Master's intuition, this champagne reveals the masterful art of blending that perfectly epitomises the identity and style of Charles Heidsieck.
Charles Heidsieck's Charlie Champagne comprises a blend of Chardonnay (52%) and Pinot Noir (48%).
