"The 2012 Vintage Brut – a classic mix of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay – is a very ripe and concentrated Champagne with a bit of bitterness in the finish. "2005 was austere as a young wine, but since 2015, it shows very well and promises a very good aging potential," finds chef de cave Régis Camus. The wine opens deep, pure and fresh on the nose, with very clear white fruit aromas, spiced bread and a very clear definition. Light, fresh and finesse-full on the silky-textured palate, but also round and intense, this is a very elegant and refined vintage Champagne. It has a pure and fresh finish, and a long and intense aftertaste." - Stephan Reinhardt


The 2006 Brut Millésimé spent nine years on the lees and was disgorged in 2017 with ten grams per liter dosage. The wine expresses the sunny vintage, exhibiting generous aromas of mirabelle plum, crisp yellow orchard fruit, confit citrus, toasted nuts and dried white flowers. On the palate, the wine is full-bodied, ample and mouthfilling, with a youthfully boisterous but elegant mousse, a fleshy core of fruit and a rich, expansive finish. This is a gourmand vintage of Heidsieck's vintage Brut, and it will be best enjoyed at table; it will age more on its concentration and extract than its acidity. The blend is a classic 59% Pinot Noir and 41% Chardonnay.

Champagne Charles Heidsieck was founded in 1851 by Charles-Camille Heidsieck. An entrepreneur and visionary, he designed the house in his image and a wine reflecting his personality. Thanks to his charm and ear for languages, Charles confidently toured his champagne around Europe, rapidly earning praise and accolades from the Universal Exhibitions and a reputation with Europe’s most prominent royal courts. Charles’ pioneering spirit meant that he quickly became an ambassador for champagne in America, back when the ‘New World’ was still a mystery for many.

Reflecting Charles’ independent character in the champagne remains significant to this day and is the role of Cyril Brun, Chef de Caves, who consistently expresses the Charles Heidsick style - complex, deep, generous wines, always with precision.

Given the importance of blending and ageing, Charles invested in the development of crayères dating back from the 2nd century; a labyrinth of 47 chalk cellars, connected by galleries, located 65 feet underground. These were given UNESCO World Heritage status in July 2015. Throughout the years the House has maintained a firm commitment to ageing, making Charles Heidsieck one of the most awarded champagnes in the world.

In 1668, Dom Pérignon is said to have discovered how to make sparkling wine; today his technique is used the world over, although Champagne continues to make some of the finest. France’s most northerly wine region, Champagne is now home to 15,000 growers and 290 ‘houses’. A blend of grape varieties is usually required: white Chardonnay to add fruit and elegance, and two reds – Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier – to provide body and backbone.
