Charles Heidseick has won more awards in the wine industry than any other house and this is testament to the quality of their wines.
2012 – A VINTAGE SUITED FOR LONG AGEING
The year 2012 made news. Not often does so chaotic and challenging a vintage provide wines with such incredible balance,
concentration and harmony. Today the 2012 vintage has found its place amongst the great Champagne years.
2012, a vintage, an evidence, a”classic” for Charles. The House has meticulously selected 10 Grands and Premiers Crus this cuvée is enticing for its pleasant smoothness, aromatic intensity and the saline freshness that is so typical of the House. Its elegance and depth make it ideal for enjoying and pairing with the most sophisticated dishes. It is also perfectly suited for further ageing.
2008 – ONE THAT WILL BE REMEMBERED IN CHAMPAGNE
The 2008 vintage is surely one that will be remembered in Champage. The seasons followed one another, generally characterised by mild temperatures. During the harvest, the sunshine was quite generous, promising a superb vintage ahead.
At the winery, the vinification of the Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésimé 2008 began with alcoholic fermentation and was followed by malolactic fermentation. The latter contributed a certain roundness and vinosity to the wine, which marks the signature style of the house. The wine was then matured in vats and bottled. They aged for 10 years in the chalk cellars of the estate in Reims.
The 2008 Brut Vintage will reach its peak around 2022, though it is also possible to taste it now. It can age safely in the cellar until 2032.
