Charles Heidsieck Millésime Vintage Brut
A beautiful deep golden hue shimmering with remarkable brilliance and enhanced by a subtle but dynamic effervescence, the aromatics generously prevail first and foremost with floral notes laced with touches of jasmine and honeysuckle. A cornucopia of fruit ensues with fragrance of white peach, fresh apricot, Mirabelle plum, grapefruit, and yuzu each vying for prominence. When swirled, subtle notes of bergamot, toasted hazelnut, licorice, and freshly-grated coconut offer a magnificent complexity to the multi-dimensional bouquet. A harmony of silky textures of nougat and butter cream complement salinity and minerality. Generous and full-bodied with a rich mouth feel this blend imparts a lasting finish.
