CHAMPAGNE BRUT MILLESIME 2006
GRAPE VARIETY 59% Pinot Noir, 41% Chardonnay
TASTING NOTES
A distinct aromatic profile underscoring the very meaning of the term vintage, the flagship of one particular year. The fruit of a year with good acidity, this 2006 vintage presents excellent cellaring potential. It is a beautiful classic which, thanks to more than ten years of ageing in the thousand-year old cellars, fully reveals its excellence, placing it amongst the world’s greatest champagnes.The 2006 harvest was optimal with regard to both quantity and quality. The grapes proved to be riper with slightly less acidity than in 2005, with an average potential of 10.1 g/l as compared to 9.6 g/l the previous year. The chardonnays seemed relatively exclusive initially but soon unveiled rich complex aromas. The pinot noirs stood out for their lushness and quickly offered notes of red fruit.To the eye: The beautiful deep golden robe shimmers with remarkable brilliance, enhanced by a subtle but dynamic effervescence. On the nose: the initial nose is generous with, first and foremost, floral notes laced with touches of jasmine and honeysuckle. A fruity cornucopia follows with fragrances of white peach, fresh apricot, mirabelle plum, grapefruit and yuzu vying for prominence. When swirled in the glass, more subtle notes of bergamot, grilled hazelnut, liquorice and fresh grated coconut offer a magnificent complexity to the multidimensional bouquet. On the plate: a beautiful harmony of saline, mineral and silky texture offers flavours of nougat and buttery cream. The shimmering bubbles are delightfully elegant. Generous and full-bodied, the accomplishment and rich-mouth feel of this champagne is truly inspiring. Its incredible aromatic depth offers longlasting delight to our senses.

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.
