charles heidsieck grand cru blanc de blancs n.v. 750ml
Charles Heidsieck was one of the very first Champagne Houses to demonstrate its passion for Chardonnay by producing a Blanc de Blancs in its 1949 vintage. There is also evidence that the Maison had produced some mono-crus from the Cote des Blancs as early as1906... Through this cuvee, relaunched in 2018, two of the House's areas of expertise come together: the production of great white wines and the art of blending a large selection of wines from different years and terroirs. The considerable challenge is to make opposites coexist: the tautness and the freshness of young chardonnays on the one hand, and the silky "Charles" character on the other.
TO THE EYE: Pale, crystalline gold with the typical glints of the Chardonnay varietal.
ON THE NOSE: The aromas of mature Chardonnay can be recognised initially: white peach, candied citrus with notes of lime, honeysuckle and fresh hazelnut, giving way to subtle hints of tangerine and lemon.
ON THE PALATE: Freshness and tautness mark this typically Charles generosity: the attack is pure and forthright, not aggressive but almost unconventionally suave for a Blanc de Blancs, so often en characterised as being sharp rather than creamy. The harmonious finish offers surprising minerality and a slight salinity.
