We have a long history of drinking this Champagne. I remember when I first started in the wine business serving this Champagne for most of my holiday functions. Charles Heidsieck makes incredible age-worthy Champagnes, and for sure this Champagne is as good as any of the top houses baring non-vintage bottling except for Krug. This Champagne is comprised of 40 % Chardonnay, 40% Pinot Noir, and 20% Pinot Meunier. The key here is 40% reserve wines with at least 10 years of age go into this bottle. The reserve wines give this Champagne an uncanny richness, and complexity seldom seen at this price point. This Champagne also spent a whopping 48 months on the lees. The 2014 base has just arrived. The mousse is very fine with aromas of white flowers, citrus, and apple fruit, bread dough, and minerality. The palate is very accessible, powerful, yet elegant, and detailed. The balance here is perfect, and we expect this Champagne to develop more depth and richness with more time in the bottle.
