Brut Réserve. A multi-vintage worthy of a prestige cuvée.
Complex: a particular blend of Pinot Noir, Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
Precise: a judicious selection of approximately 60 crus.
Unctuous: 40% of reserve wines, many of them more than 10 years old.
Deep: a maturation of more than 3 years in Gallo-Roman chalk cellars.
A golden champagne, with persistent effervescence. A nose that is both complex and delicious.

Winery Tasting Notes
A deep golden robe. Delicate vivacious and long-lasting bubbles, area the result of more than 36 months of ageing in chalk cellars.
With 40% of reserve wines (the maximum possible amount), the blend offers a complex, voluptuous nose with notes of freshly baked brioche and the richness of roasted coffee beans. A precise selection of wines, purposely limited to 60 crus, ensures the Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve a deliciously sophisticated harmony.
An opulent selection of ripe, sun-drenched fruits such as mango, apricot and geengage plum combines with dried fruits, pistachio and almond.
The texture is reminiscent of a crisp layer of nougatine on a velvety cream pastry filled with plum red plums and ripe cherries. The reserve wines some dating back ten years, give the wine lushness. The depth of the thousand-year old chalk quarries where the wine matures offer a touch of praline along with notes of amber and vanilla.
