CHAMPAGNE BLANC DE BLANCS VINTAGE 2006
GRAPE VARIETY
Chardonnay
TASTING NOTES
4 Grands Crus: Cramant, Avize, Oger, Le Mesnil sur Oger, and 1 Premier Cru: Vertus. Aged more than 10 years on the lees. Despite extreme weather conditions, the 2006 harvest was a generous one. The winter was cold with heavy snowfall, followed by several spring storms across May, then stiing heat at the beginning of summer. Record temperatures featured across July, with a cold and rainy August to follow. Finally, a spell of dry, sunny weather in September was particularly helpful for maturing the grapes and ensuring an unexpectedly smooth and generous harvest. Its refined gold color is illuminated by soft green reflections. The generous perlage is amplified by the brightness and liveliness of its composition. On the nose its bouquet is perfectly balanced between elegance and richness. Elegance is expressed by notes of lemon, apple blossom, salted butter and almond; while the richness is expressed through aromas of pastry, which evolve into richer and buttery notes but, at the same time, also in slightly toasted accents. In the mouth it amazes for its incredible pleasantness, freshness and fullness. Delicate initial citrus notes make it crunchy; the texture is dynamic and the finish soft and round. The rich texture is given by a thousandth still young and tense: the refined and elegant effervescence reveals a minerality still evolving.
DOSAGE : 7g/l

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.
