The sommelier info

This Champagne Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires is a masterpiece from a superb vintage. The complexity of over 15 years, and a wine that's still so fresh! Discover fabulous citrus and floral notes, with fresh fruit revealing itself a little later. Blond tobacco and eucalyptus are added on the palate with a saline, lively and slightly chalky attack. These fruity notes continue through to a generous, saline finish.

An ultra-precise selection of Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs - 4 Grands Crus and 1 Premier Cru - a unique complexity made possible by 15 years of ageing. An intense moment of tasting, as special as the atmosphere of the thousand-year-old chalk pits where this wine matures.
For this legendary wine, an exceptional case was needed: the box, echoing the curves of these chalk pits, echoes the nobility of these places where nothing counts but the time left to time. This time is that of exceptional moments. A unique emotion!

CHARLES HEIDSIECK, A CHARISMATIC BUSINESSMAN

Charles Heidsieck was a colorful character, drawing on the experience of his great uncle who founded his Champagne house decades before him. At just 29, he decided to take the plunge and founded his own house in Reims in 1851, which still bears his name today. Having purchased a large number of crayères, he soon began to develop his own wine-making and ageing processes. This daring young man flew to America in 1852 and made his mark with the country’s elite, who renamed him "Champagne Charlie". As a result, the Charles Heidsieck Champagne House became one of the first to export its products, supplying a number of European royal courts. In 2011, the House was handed over to the Descours family, whose sole ambition is to take it to the top.

IN THE CELLARS OF CHAMPAGNE CHARLES HEIDSIECK...

The Charles Heidsieck vineyard covers some 60 hectares in the Marne and Aube regions, where Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier grow, each bringing their own typicity and nobility to the house’s champagnes. Charles Heidsieck holds Viticulture Durable and Haute Valeur Environnementale certifications, guaranteeing its commitment to biodiversity and its cultivation practices. Depth and smoothness. These words take on their full meaning as Maison Charles Heidsieck vinifies vintage by vintage, grape variety by grape variety. The demand for delicacy is evident at every stage. The crayères acquired by Charles in 1867 enable bottles to be aged for extended periods, from 4 to 40 years. The cellar masters at Champagne Heidsieck are among the most renowned, and have been voted "Best Sparkling Wine Cellar Master of the Year" 12 times in 20 years by the prestigious Wine Challenge.
