This wine is a tour de force in rosé wine making - it just makes perfect sense.

They only use a base wine that's at least 7-8 years old, in this case, they have used 80% of the 2012 vintage with the remainder being reserve wine with an average age of 5 years.

Expect, soft peach in colour, the nose is filled with notes of rhubarb and apricot kernel. The palate is delicate, understated and refined with an almost saline (salty) profile which underlies a mineral edge.

If you are seeking an elegant style of rosé be confident in your choice here.

What makes Charles Heidsieck such an excellent house? Well there are many avenue we can discuss however I will focus on their unashamed pursuit of quality through long cellar ageing, a back catalogue of reserve wines in solera and a multitude of vineyard sites to select across. They produce some 800,000 bottles a year which is small on the grand scheme of champagne production. The Chef de Cave is Cyril Brun who has done a sterling job of crafting some extraordinary wines.

According to our friend and colleague Tyson Stelzer, "The new Charles Heidsieck is built on deep, autumnal complexity, juxtaposed with vibrant energy and astonishing poise. Its cuvées have never looked finer." Tyson Stelzer - The Champagne Guide 2018-2019

Let's not forget they own 1 of the 5 UNESCO World Heritage listed Gallo-Roman cellars that are impressive as they are a prominent part of history.
