Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve NV 750ml Champagne, France
- $90.00 $128.00
The Brut Réserve boasts a deep golden hue. Delicate, vivacious and long-lasting bubbles are the result of a long, slow maturing process in chalk cellars. Thanks to 40% of reserve wines, the blend offers a complex, elegant, voluptuous nose with a touch of freshly baked brioche, rich toasted notes and sun-drenched fruits - mango, apricot and mirabelle plum - accented by dried fruits, pistachio and almond. The texture is reminiscent of a crisp layer of nougatine on a velvety cream pastry, filled with plump red plums and ripe cherries. The selection of reserve wines gives the wine lushness. The finish unveils notes of praline and vanilla.
60: the number of crus gone into the blend that is precise, stringent and tailor-made. The wines produced that year, a third for each varietal are vinified by cru, varietal by varietal in stainless steel vat. A high proportion of 40% of reserve wines divided equally between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, to ensure the fine complexity and indulgence of the Brut Rểserve. The average age of reserve wines is 10 years, an exception in Champagne. Taken from the best crus from the best years, the wines placed in reserve are kept in vats between 5 to 15 years, if not more, to develop finesse and their aromatic range.
