In 1851, young Charles Heidsieck founded his own Champagne house in Reims. He understood that the United States was an important emerging market, so he traversed America repeatedly north to south promoting his new brand. The stylish entrepreneur became known lovingly as ?Champagne Charlie.?
Charles Heidsieck Champagne is distinguished by the high proportion of reserve wines in the Brut R'serve. 40% of the blend is comprised of reserve wines averaging 10 years old, giving the wine uncommon depth and complexity. In addition to the non-vintage Brut R'serve and Ros? R'serve, the winery produces a Vintage Brut, Vintage Ros? and the prestige cuv?e Blanc des Millenaires.
Only 60 crus from Champagne are blended to create Charles Heidsieck Champagnes, but the three stylistic pillars that give the Brut R'serve its distinct character are Grand Cru Chardonnay from Oger in the C?te des Blancs, Grand Cru Pinot Noir from Ambonnay in the Montagne de Reims, and the distinct Pinot Meunier from Verneuil in the Vall?e de Marne.
Visual : Pillory with garnet edging.Nose : Complex predominance of mineral notes in a background of cherry jam combined with a subtle blend of roasted and smoked background.Palate : Powerful but with a step of silky and well-balanced tannins that make up a final that feels fatty with mineral and candied aftertaste.
