Charles Heidsieck have proven themselves one of the most consisitent of houses over the last few years winning award after award. Having spent 10 years working for Bollinger I have a certain allegiance to them but even I have to admit to a growing love of this house and its excellent wines.
Radiant pale gold with fine, persistent bubbles. Complex pastry aromas, with an opulent combination of ripe apricot, mango and greengages, dried fruits, pistachio and almond. The palate begins with a silky smooth sensation, developing into ripe fleshy apricot, melon and enticing plum pastry notes and delicate spice. A perfect balance of freshness and generosity.
