Charles Heidsieck 2005

Charles-Heidsieck-2005Having slept in the house’s Gallo-Roman cellars for eight years, Champagne Charles Heidsieck 2005 will make its UK debut this October. Disgorged in the spring, the fizz is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay from vineyards in Oger, Avize, Cramant, Vertus, Mailly and Ambonnay with chef de cave Thierry Roset seeking sites that produced grapes offering freshness and acidity in order to produce a balanced wine.

The warm weather in 2005 has resulted in a “rich and generous” wine according to its maker. “The wine has all the hallmarks of a classic Charles Heidsieck vintage: great depth, balance and richness”, says Roset. “A harmonious acidity and intensity suggest the wine has a long life ahead of it. Currently it is showing warm autumnal notes of praline and lightly toasted hazelnuts, with an intense palate of dried apricots, figs and dates.”

RRP: £74.99.
