Winemaker Notes: This gift set includes the 92+ Point Rated Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve in a limited edition coffret with two champagne flutes. The 280 ml glasses were designed by Judith Van Den Hoek, the illustrator who designed the Charles advertising. A witty tone expressing the style and spirit of the house.
To the Eye
A deep golden robe. Delicate vivacious and long-lasting bubbles, are the result of more than 36 months of ageing in chalk cellars.
To the Nose
With 40% of reserve wines (the maximum possible amount), the blend offers a complex, voluptuous nose with notes of freshly baked brioche and the richness of roasted coffee beans. A precise selection of wines, purposely limited to 60 crus, ensures the Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve a deliciously sophisticated harmony. An opulent selection of ripe, sun-drenched fruits such as mango, apricot and greengage plum combines with dried fruits, pistachio and almond.
On the Palate
The texture is reminiscent of a crisp layer of nougatine on a velvety cream pastry filled with plump red plums and ripe cherries. The reserve wines, some dating back ten years give the wine lushness. The depth of the thousand-year old chalk quarries where the wine matures offer a touch of praline along with notes of amber and vanilla.
Wine Spectator - "A rich and toasty Champagne, with vivacious acidity backing the flavors of apple pastry and coffee, with just a touch of hard candy or treacle. The texture is delicate and refined, and the wine shows fine length overall."
