STORY: Charles Heidsieck is one of the champagne houses with the highest ratings in the world. Chef de Cave Cyril Brun has just been awarded the coveted title of Sparkling Winemaker of the Year in London. The cuvees of the house are opulent and delicate at the same time, profound and complex paired with elegance and finesse. A reflection of the personality of the founder. The 2012 vintage is considered to be particularly exceptional
AGEING: More than 7 years on the lees in the in-house crayères. (Storage and disgorgement dates are shown on the bottle label)
AROMA: The Brut Millésimé 2012 presents itself with classic elegance in a delicate golden yellow with the finest perlage, which is delicate and persistent at the same time. As a duet, there are initially subtle toasted and smoky notes with a hint of liquorice and earth, followed by a beautiful fruit, dominated by apricots, blueberries, sloe and fresh almonds.
EVALUATION: The wine develops excellently on the palate, fresh and mineral with aromas of quince, peach and vanilla, which develop into a powerful, crisp finish, a true delight for the senses.
SERVING RECOMMENDATION: Goes perfectly with smoked or roasted dishes such as eel and scamorza or roasted with chicory sauce

The founder Charles Heidseick courageously invested in 2,000-year-old cellar vaults from Roman times, whose hygrometric conditions are ideal for the aging of wines and the development of finesse and elegance. His decision at the time to let the wines mature over a longer period of time was a cost-intensive but also forward-looking move. To this day, the ripening period has strategic priority. The fact that the House of Charles Heidsieck has its very own style and perfects its level year after year not only inspires champagne connoisseurs and sommeliers, but also more and more lovers of good cuisine.
