Charles Heidsieck Brut 2006 Blanc Des Millenaires Blanc De Blancs 75cl / 12%
A bottle of 2006 Charles Heidsieck Brut Blanc des Millénaires Champagne, made from 100% Chardonnay sourced from Grand Cru sites in Avize, Cramant, Le Mesnil-sur-Oger and Oger, as well as the Premier Cru village of Vertus.
'This is the last vintage of Charles Heidsieck to be sold in the old standard bottle shape rather than the snazzy new one introduced in 2007. Made by Thierry Roset to the usual recipe: four grands crus from the Côte des Blancs plus Vertus – 20% each......Very lively and flirtatious. Transparent and mineral – very Côte des Blancs. Definitely lively champagne rather than one of those champagnes that tastes more like a white burgundy with bubbles. Spreads across the palate. There's a rich undertow but only at the very end after the ethereal, filigree aspect that heralds this wine.18+/20' Jancis Robinson MW, tasted 2020
