TASTING NOTES
A surprising combination of precision and indulgence, the Rosé Réserve takes its inspiration from the Brut Réserve blend, to which have been added 5 to 6% of red Champagne wines from Les Riceys, the crown jewel of the côte des Bars, a terroir selected for the great delicacy of its Pinots Noirs. As a result of meticulous attention, the Rosé Réserve stands out for its unconventional character. To ensure an ideal balance of freshness and elegance on the one hand and structure and complexity on the other, the Cellar Master bides by a House principle, intentionally selecting reserve wines that are younger than those of the Brut Réserve, aged 5 years on average. Each of the wines are vinified cru by cru, varietal by varietal, in stainless steel vats. 5 to 6% of wines vinified in red provide tannins and aromas of red fruits, a base upon which the Cellar Master will subtly develop a full-bodied, voluptuous rosé. Ageing for more than 3 years in the rare, age-old chalk cellars purchased by Charles Heidsieck starting in 1867. These cellars, one of the sites in the listing of Champagne on the UNESCO World Heritage List, served as inspiration for the shape of the bottle. It wears a sophisticated powdery pink robe with luminous glints of wild rose. Delicate, vivacious bubbles are the result of extensive ageing. A base of 20 % of reserve wines, white and red, give this rosé blend a subtle, yet complex nose. The initial fragrances recall home-made strawberry jam fresh from the stove, mixed with the fruitiness of vineyard peach, followed by luscious warm notes of gingerbread laced with a touch of cinnamon. The pronounced powerful mouthfeel offers a burst of strawberry, raspberry and blackberry nestled in velvety whipped cream.

Charles Heidsieck

Charles Heidsieck Discover the Maison Charles Heidsieck and its fine Champagnes in our online store Charles Camille Heidsieck was born in 1822, 37 years after his great-uncle founded Champagne Heidsieck et Cie House. The young Charles grew up in an environment where one breathed the air of champagne from an early age. At just 29, he took his destiny into his own hands and founded the Maison Charles Heidsieck , buying 47 crayères in which to vinify the grapes grown by his cousin Ernest Henriot. The 19th Century was the era of great discoveries and Charles immediately revealed himself to be a visionary, innovative and highly intelligent man. He became ambassador of his own Maison and, consequently, of all of France. During his travels, Charles Heidsieck embodied contemporary French glamor and distinguished himself as a free spirit with an innate kindness. Charles was a man with an elegant and clean charm, he conquered America and seduced the bourgeoisie of New York, becoming the legendary "Champagne Charlie" . More than 160 years after its creation, the Maison remains a family business driven by the enterprising, ambitious and courageous spirit of the founder. The Champagnes Charles Heidsieck enjoys absolute fame. The unique style, characterized by a high percentage of reserve wines, is what gives balance to the Maison's cuvée sans année. The selected grapes give, together with the original Crus, complexity to the final product. Vinified vine by vine, they allow a precise selection of each wine in which one brings its touch of depth, the other its share of softness. The separate vinification allows precision and great refinement in the construction of flavors.
