Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve

Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, September 2015

“Rich and creamy, this harmonious Champagne is expressive, with brioche, crystallized honey, black currant and toasted marshmallow flavors, accented by hints of verbena, baked peach and chopped nut. Vibrant and focused through to the lasting, saline tinged finish. Drink now through 2022.”

Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, November 2018

2006 Charles Heidsieck Millésime Vintage Rosé

Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, June 2016

“Charles Heidsieck's 2006 Brut Rosé (with 10% Pinot Noir red wine) has been launched before the 2005. Disgorged at the end of 2014, the wine offers a delicate and intense wild strawberry flavor with some lovely spicy aromas on the nose. Ample, full and round, this is a lovely matured Rosé with a super intense and aromatic Pinot character (sweet cherries, red berries). The finish underlines the great complexity, purity and finesse of this vinous Rosé. There are cherry aromas again in the long aftertaste. An impressive Rosé.”

2006 Charles Heidsieck Millésime Vintage Rosé

Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, September 2015

“This focused rosé Champagne offers a mousse with the texture of raw silk, which swathes the firm frame in layers of roasted hazelnut, baked peach, toasted brioche and crème de cassis flavors, with a rich and smoky underpinning and accents of candied kumquat, espresso, ground ginger and cumin that expand on the finish. Drink now through 2030.”

2006 Charles Heidsieck Millésime Vintage Rosé

Nick Stock, James Suckling, July 2015

“A pale hue in the glass, this has a savory nose that delivers a very nicely struck toasty edge with chalky pastry and faint red fruits. The palate's sophisticated fine texture is mesmerizing. This really dances, leaving a trail of red berry fruits in its wake, through to a long, pure and fresh, spicy finish. Drink now.”

2005 Charles Heidsieck Millésime Vintage Brut

Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, June 2016

“The 2005 Vintage Brut – a classic mix of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – is a very ripe and concentrated Champagne with a bit of bitterness in the finish. 2005 was austere as a young wine, but since 2015, it shows very well and promises a very good aging potential, finds chef de cave Régis Camus. The wine opens deep, pure and fresh on the nose, with very clear white fruit aromas, spiced bread and a very clear definition. Light, fresh and finesse-full on the silky-textured palate, but also round and intense, this is a very elegant and refined vintage Champagne. It has a pure and fresh finish, and a long and intense aftertaste.”

2004 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires

Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator, October 2018

“A seamless Champagne, showing a texture of raw silk, this weaves vibrant acidity with an expressive range of glazed apple and poached white cherry fruit flavors, with pickled ginger and saffron spice details and rich notes of pastry cream, toast and coffee liqueur. More about finesse than power, this is long and creamy on the mineral-tinged finish. Drink now through 2028”

1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires

Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, June 2016

“Deep, pure and fresh on the fruit-intense and complex nose, the 1995 Blanc des Millenaires is still young and incredibly fresh on the palate. This is refreshingly pure, concentrated, fruity and perfectly round Champagne that reveals a great tension and mineral complexity. It also has a long and salty finish. Keep it for ten or 20 years.”

1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires

Stephan Reinhardt, Wine Advocate, June 2016

“Disgorged 20 years ago, the golden colored 1985 Blanc des Millenaires – comprised of 55% Chardonnay and 45% Pinot Noir – displays a deep and beautifully matured nose with wax, honey, caramel and butterscotch aromas. Full-flavored, rich and highly elegant in the mouth, with great intensity, structure and complexity in the aromas, this 31-year-old prestige cuvée is fascinatingly vital – although there are almost no bubbles visible. There are dried stone fruit flavors in the finish. A great drinking experience.”

2007 Bruno Giacosa Spumante Extra Brut

Kerin O'Keefe, Wine Enthusiast, December 2015

“Made entirely with Pinot Nero, this straw colored Metodo Classico opens with subdued aromas of nut and a whiff of bread crust. The palate is more expressive, offering white peach, citrus zest and pastry notes alongside a creamy mousse. An almond note closes the finish.”

2017 Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis

James Suckling, James Suckling, July 2018

“This is very beautiful. Lime-skin, light-pear and lemon aromas and mineral undertones. Full-bodied, dense and very intense with layers of fruit and flavor. Extremely long finish. Fantastic density and richness, yet always crisp and lively. Drink now.”

2017 Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, June 2018

“From a hot vintage, the 2017 Roero Arneis is a rich and pulpy white wine with bright fruit definition. The bouquet delivers tropical fruit, papaya and apricot. The mouthfeel is rich with thick fruit flavors. This vintage shows superior structure. But an expert winemaking hand is clearly at play, because that sunny ripeness falls short of tasting jammy or too heavy. Bruna Giacosa tells me that because of reduced yields, it proved challenging to source enough fruit to make this wine. Drink this fruit-forward white wine within the next few years.”

2016 Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis

Monica Larner, Wine Advocate, June 2017

“The 2016 Roero Arneis was bottled on Saint Valentine's Day and that's a fitting touch. Some 140,000 bottles were made, which is more than average. This is a fresh and buoyant wine that is loaded with tangy tropical fruit, pineapple and honeydew melon. The wine's intensity is exuberant, pronounced and refreshing. Dustings of fine mineral and salty limestone characteristics give the wine a brilliant sense of polish and crispness. Bruna Giacosa tells me the fruit harvested in 2016 was beautiful. She distinctly remembers the perfumes of the Arneis grapes as they came into the winery on the back of a truck during harvest. This is a beautiful white wine.”

2015 Bruno Giacosa Roero Arneis

Stephanie Johnson, Wine & Spirits, December 2016

“Lemony acidity lifts this wine’s honey and orchard fruit flavors and, along with the waxy texture, gives an impression that’s reminiscent of a Loire chenin. It feels poised and balanced, the pear and apple flavors remaining cool and fresh on the way to a long and elegant finish.”
