CHAMPAGNE BLANC DE BLANCS VINTAGE 2007
GRAPE VARIETY
Chardonnay
TASTING NOTES
4 Grand Cru: Cramant, Avize, Oger, Le Mesnil sur Oger and 1 Premier Cru: Vertus. Aged over 12 years on the lees. The 2007 vintage is anachronistic and in fact refers us to the great Blanc de Blancs of the 80s and 90s, with a contained maturity and a marked acidity. The vintage immediately aroused concern because it was very accelerated. There was a real anticipation of spring with the consequent appearance of the buds. Flowering began on May 25th. The bad weather then made the management of the vineyards very complicated, but at the same time it made it possible to preserve a good acidity of the grapes. A rather cool summer, combined with the arrival of heavy rains just before the harvest, effectively erased the memory of the hot summers of previous years. The pale gold color with greenish reflections is typical of Chardonnay and is in stark contrast to the previous vintage, 2006. On the nose, the chalky minerality of the Côte des Blancs is omnipresent. At first you will notice toasted and smoky notes and then, by swirling the glass, notes of fresh citrus fruits, grapefruit, yuzu and quince that give a carefree youth to the aromatic profile which is in itself fine and delicate. In the mouth the identity of the vintage is intertwined with a strong and classy acidity, reminiscent of the 2004 vintage in its first explosion of youth. An enveloping texture is then revealed with accents of lemon meringue pie and subtle saline notes. Champagne of great generosity that can persist and evolve with aging. The finish is long and full-bodied. The very nature of this vintage makes it perfect, first of all, to drink as an aperitif or at the beginning of a meal. For the more daring we recommend pairing with traditional Italian cheeses such as mozzarella, scamorza and pecorino di Pienza. The sea is the favorite place for food pairings: flying fish roe, sea urchin coral, smoked eel, large oysters and abalone. Vegetable notes delicately accompany these marine ingredients: seaweed, coriander, lemongrass, shiso, lemon balm and peppermint.

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.
