TASTING NOTES
The 2008 rosé will always hold a special place in the Charles Heidsieck range of vintage rosés, with an exceptional longevity taking it to culmination in the second half of the 21st century. The quality will naturally prevail at earlier tastings as proof of the adage "Great wines are always good, but the time to open them is another question". The fall was wonderfully fresh and dry in 2008, followed by a rather mild winter, disrupted only by periods of precipitation towards the beginning of spring. In the midst of June, a crucial moment in the flowering, a bitter cold period presented a potential threat to the vines. Worried winegrowers were relieved in mid September to note the quality of their very best vines. Following a series of unusual years, either in volume or precocity of the harvest, 2008 returned to the Champagne norms. Clement weather during the harvests ensured very healthy, ripe grapes. All of which indicates a very high potential for expression and long cellaring. The 2008 wears a sublime soft pink robe. The initial nose is saline and mineral, underlined by a hint of toast and smoke. Notes of citrus, pink grapefruit, blood orange and red current gradually follow. A discreet fruitiness with more intense notes will be unveiled with time: Morello cherries, liquorice and black tea. The exuberant mouthfeel is cubic with the typical vivacity of the vintage. The finish is long and creamy, with extremely delicate effervescence at the very end.
DOSAGE: 7g/l
To be enjojed until 2050

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.
