Golden in appearance, on the nose the aromas are autumnal and warm with notes of praline and lightly toasted hazelnuts. The palate is rich, as would be expected from a warm and generous vintage, with intense notes of dried apricots, dates and figs. Full bodied and layered, and lasting on the finish.
ABOUT THE PRODUCER
This millésime was composed of 11 crus, including the vineyards that form the corner stones of the house style - Oger, Avize, Vertus and Cramant for Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir from Mailly and Ambonnay.
Charles Heidsieck champagne is one of the most recognized by the profession. Over the course of the past two decades, the Cellar Masters have been named Best Sparkling Winemaker of the Year no fewer than 12 times in the International Wine Challenge (IWC). Charles Heidsieck's success began as soon as the 19th Century. In 1859, 4 years only after the creation of the House, Charles Heidsieck received the first and only gold medal ever awarded to a champagne producer during an exhibition in Bordeaux.
Over the ten past years, the House received more than 180 gold medals and some 32 Trophies. The prestigious Blanc des Millénaires cuvée received a Gold medal in the 2015 IWC. The iconic Rosé Réserve cuvee hit the jackpot and was named #1 of the Rosé Non-Vintage ranking of the famous Fine Champagne Magazine. In September 2015, in the Wine Spectator magazine, the Brut Réserve and Rosé Réserve scored 93 points, the the Rose Vintage 2006 scored 94 points, and the Blanc des Millénaires 1995 scored 95 points.
