Champagne Charles HEIDSIECK Blanc des Millénaires - Blanc de blancs 2007 bottle 75cl

bottle 75cl: 216,67 €bottle 75cl

In 2011, the Descours family took over this old House (1851) with the aim of restoring it to its 19th century glory. The gamble paid off, and was widely acclaimed by the critics: "Charles Heidsieck richly deserves to be considered one of today's most brilliant brands" for Mr Bettane, "Heidsieck is back in the limelight with a complete range of top-class wines" for the Revue du Vin de France.

Predominantly Chardonnay, the 'Charles' style is based on elegance and, above all, great freshness tempered by long maturation (from 5 years for the Brut Réserve to 15 years for the Blanc des Millénaires) in their famous chalk pits near Reims. Throughout the range, there's no trace of oxidation, no rancio, just an extreme smoothness. Great art!

The cuvée Blanc des Millénaires is made with 100% chardonnay.

Le Blanc des Millénaires received two successive coups de coeur ♥ from the Hachette guide, for its 2006 and 2007.

Rated 93/100 by La Revue du Vin de France « Une attaque construite soyeusement, un coeur de bouche à l'étoffe gourmande. La finale est élégante. » (December 2022)

    Rated 92/100 by the Revue du Vin de France « This 2012 is beautifully fleshed out, with a seductive envelope. The style is consensual, with a slightly restrained texture and finish. We'd like it to be freer. Nonetheless, it remains a safe bet. » (December 2022)
