Charles Heidsieck's millésimé usually comprises around 11 crus. It has autumnal and warm notes of praline and lightly toasted hazelnuts on the nose. The palate is rich and generous, with a lively freshness on the long finish.
Golden in appearance. Initially, the nose shows subtle toasted and smoked notes with a touch of liquorice and earthy tones. When swirled in the glass, fruity notes of apricot, blackthorn, quince, blueberry and fresh almonds add an extra dimension to the wine. The palate is mineral and taut with excellent freshness, with notes of quince, vanilla and vineyard peaches on the mid-palate, followed by a crisp finish. A lovely vintage which will continue to develop great complexity and generosity over time.
