Charles-Camille Heidsieck set up his own Champagne company in 1851 and right from the start, the pursuit of the highest quality was always the company's main aim.
Based in the great city of Reims, Charles Heidsieck is one of the few houses that are able to use the fabulous chalk "crayères" cellars under the city. The "crayères" were hollowed out during Gallo-Roman times so that the chalk could be used for building. These cellars now provide a perfect atmosphere for the ageing of Champagne.
The entire Charles Heidsieck range is excellent from the Brut Réserve right up to the luxury cuvées Blanc des Millénaires and Champagne Charlie. A great believer in the ageability of fine Champagne, Charles Heidsieck ensure that their luxury cuvées drink well for decades.
The palest of rosés made with the addition of 7% red wine from the great villages of Ambonnay and Bouzy lending a delicate copper tint. The nose is rich with yeast and brioche notes; red fruits (fresh strawberry and raspberry) not evident at first, increase with time in the glass. There is a similar profile on the palate with almost chalk/mineral and citrus notes and red fruits again increasing over time. A very elegant, subtle rosé, drinking beautifully now, but which I suspect will gain further weight over the next year or so. Simon Field MW - Champagne Buyer
