Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésimé 2008

Brut

$320.00

- An extremely limited release

- Aged 10 years in the Crayères

- Blend of 10 Grands Crus and Premiers Crus


After 10 years ageing in the unique Gallo-Romain Crayères, Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésimé is an elegant and refined wine with an incredible smooth texture on the palate. A blend of ten Grands Crus and Premiers Crus meticulously selected by the House, it shows magnificent minerality, intensity and acidity. The long finish displays notes of caramel, citrus and yuzu. 

True to the Charles Heidsieck style, Millésimé 2008 already displays all the elegance and power of an outstanding vintage, qualities which will only be enhanced with time.

Charles Heidsieck 2008 is a very small release compared to the previous vintage 2006, less than half of what a typical vintage would be. 

 

Gentleman and entrepreneur in the audacious 19th century, Charles Heidsieck was heir to a Champagne fortune, a rebel with an extraordinary thirst for adventure. At age 29, he founded a Champagne House in his image: authentic, distinguished and which stands out among all others. In keeping with this spirit, his grandson Charles-Marcel created a Blanc de Blancs, consolidating the style of a House that manifests itself across all varietals.

What makes Charles Heidsieck such an excellent house? Well there are many avenue we can discuss, however, let's 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 with finesse, power and maturity.
