Heidsieck Brut Millésime 2008

A blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, the Brut Millésime 2008 is described as having a “complex” nose, with aromas of “candied citrus, dried fruits, pecan and hazelnut”. Flavours include “caramel and citrus”. The grapes used in the blend were sourced from 10 grands and premiers crus: Oger, Vertus, Chouilly, Cuis, Verzy, Aÿ, Ludes, Ambonnay, Tauxières and Avenay. Undergoing full malolactic fermentation, the fizz was kept on its lees for a decade, later being disgorged and given a dosage of 8g/l. The wine was then left a further six months before being released.

RRP: £105.
