Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Blancs
Pale gold and crystalline in appearance, the aromas of mature Chardonnay are immediately recognized. Resplendent with white peach, candied citrus, lime, and honeysuckle complemented by hints of hazelnut, the cuvée unfolds to subtle nuances of tangerine and lemon. With a freshness and tautness marked by the typical Charles generosity, this velvety, full-bodied cuvée features the aromatic complexity which is the hallmark of Charles Heidsieck and characterized by prolonged aging in the chalk cellars for 25% of this blend.
75% Chardonnay from the 2012 harvest and 25% reserve wines with an average age of 5 years. Composed mainly of crus from the Côte des Blancs (Oger, Vertus) completed by crus from Villers-Marmery, Trépail, Vaudemange, and Montgueux. Aged more than 4 years on the lees. To be enjoyed within 7 years.
