Description

History

Charles Heidsieck founded the homonymous maison in 1851; he was a man with a great personality The maison stood out for the use of reserve wines that enrich the olfactory profile and drinkability, and conquered market shares all over the world. Despite the important production, the company has maintained its “family style” and its cellars, which extend for about 8 km underground in the chalk quarries, are considered a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

Grapes used

100% Chardonnay

Production method

It is produced according to the so-called methode champenoise or classic method, a method in which the wine substantially undergoes two different fermentations: the first, the alcoholic one (which it shares with the rest of the wines) takes place in vats for fermentation; the second instead takes place directly in the bottle and ensures that during this second procedure, thanks to particular yeasts, the wine also develops carbon dioxide (which will then give life to the famous bubbles when uncorked). the wine rests on its lees for about 13 years.

Alcohol content

12.5%

Tasting notes

Intense golden yellow color with very fine and persistent perlage. Deep and intense on the nose, very elegant with notes of acacia flowers, citrus fruits, blood orange, fig, ripe date jam, vanilla, brioche and a background of chalky minerality. On the palate the wine is broad, very creamy, full, except for developing more crunchiness and expressiveness as the sip descends. Long finish, which recalls the notes of citrus and candied fruit, vanilla and a long mineral vein, supported by a nice acidity and freshness.

Possible combinations

Champagne for great occasions! Expression of chardonnay coming only from the best crus and vineyards, assembled with the skill of the great Chefs de Cave of this maison. Suitable as a meditation wine, or to toast to great occasions or achievements, to be combined with first courses with white truffles, scallops or delicate and tasty fish dishes, or with second courses of white meat.
