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 2006 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 Charles Camille Heidsieck was born in 1822 to a noble family from Westphalia. In 1851, at the age of 29, he founded the Maison Charles Heidsieck based on his far-sighted initiatives and the fertile lands of his brother-in-law, none other than a Henriot. Charles' ambitions resonate in a world in full swing. The 19th century is the age of great discoveries and immediately reveals itself as a visionary, innovative man with great intelligence. He became an ambassador for his own Maison and, consequently, for the whole of France. He travels all the time, driven to an ambitious curiosity and never tired, imbued with an undeniable "savoir-faire" and kind spirit, a real dandy globetrotter. The Maison de Champagne Charles Heidsieck remains, more than 160 years after its creation, a family reality and maintains the spirit of resourcefulness, courage and pursuit of the founder's excellence. The champagnes Charles Heidsieck enjoy an unmistakable signature. The unique style is characterized by a high percentage of reserve wines that enriches the Maison's cuvée sans année, giving rare and constant balance. Reserve wines represent the richness and uniqueness of Charles Heidsieckchampagnes, but they are also constantly evolving wines, which chef de Caves' mastery assembles in a harmonious composition. The selected grapes give, together with the original Crus, complexity to the finish. Cru vinified for Cru, vine for vine, allow a precise selection of each wine in which one brings its touch of depth, the other its part of softness. Rich, different, the notes obtained from separate vinifications determine a precision and great refinement in the construction of flavors, gently oscillating between complexity, depth and softness.
