Charles Heidsieck was one of the very first Champagne Houses to demonstrate its passion for Chardonnay by producing a Blanc de Blancs in its 1949 vintage, going on to make a non-vintage during the 1960s. It now combines the Chardonnay grapes of ten crus, with 25% of the blend being reserve wines, averaging 6 years in age. Very pale, crystalline gold colour, the nose recalls white peach and spiced citrus with notes of honeysuckle and toasted hazelnuts. On the palate, this bears all the hallmarks of a Charles Heidsieck Champagne: boldness, generosity and elegance. Embracing yet light, it displays appealing mineral notes, and has a velvety texture that leaves a lasting impression.
