Description

Charles Heidsieck is the Champagne house for those in-the-know. Ultra-stylish in terms of both their wine and their appearance, there is something about Heidsieck that sings class. Their wines are renowned for their richness and intensity and the flagship wines stand shoulder to shoulder with the greatest prestiges cuvées in Champagne. Greedily sought by collectors and discerning drinkers alike, Charles Heidsieck is one to seek out.
 
 
94 Luca Gardini  

The harmony and complexity come from one of the higher quotas of riserva wines (40%). The dosage does not indulge softness, even if the citrus is never very openly bitter and the apple has inflections of rennet, but also quince. On the finish, tones of yellow-fleshed fruit, hazelnut, and salt intersect. Nice persistence.

93 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.

93 Decanter  

An exceptional Brut Reserve NV based on the great 2008 harvest. The intricate aromas have settled into a rare complexity of bouquet. Vanilla, toast and pâtissière flatter both nose and palate, miraculously freshened by lovely acidity. A superior aperitif champagne, ideally matched with oysters or caviar. 11g/l dosage. Disgorged in early 2017.

92 James Suckling  

A wealth of trademark complexity that makes for an immediately engaging Champagne. Bright little red berries and poached peaches plus flinty reductive notes and baked caramel nut biscuits. Makes a composed and focused impression to start with citrus, strawberry and stone fruit flavors all here; really fluffy foamy texture fills it out and then it rolls through richer savory notes to close. A solid NV drinking well now, this will even handle a year or two more on cork.

17 Jancis Robinson  

Extremely powerful nose powers out of the glass! A certain sweet creaminess on the nose. Really quite rich. Very much more rounded and welcoming than the blend based on 2008. Not that many houses have a seven-year-old NV on the market! Real bullseye for the Charles style. Tastes readier than the 2008 base – a real standout.
