An exceptional artisanal Champagne from Charles Heidsieck, made from the permitted grape varieties of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier and blending over 60 still wines; 40% of which are reserve wines, some up to 15 years old. This Non-Vintage Brut Reserve has a delicate and vivacious golden hue and complex, elegant and voluptuous nose with notes of freshly baked brioche, toast and sun-drenched fruits including mango and apricot. On the palate, a velvety cream pastry character is supported with dried fruits, red plums and cherries, a slight sweet spice and savoury notes including Pistachio and Almonds.
Charles Heidsieck was born into a winemaking family in 1822 and founded his own Champagne house in 1851. He was well known for travelling extensively through the US and Europe and acting as an advocate for both his own wines but also the Champagne region as a whole. The estate was purchased by the Descours family in 2011 and they work to uphold the legacy of this prestigious estate. A perfect bottle to celebrate a special occasion or pairs superbly well with fresh fish and chips! 12% ABV.
