Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve really exceeded my expectations. I tend to be a champagne traditionalist who appreciates a little more depth and complexity to whatever bubbly I happen to be drinking. Charles Heidsieck drinks like a vintage champagne though it's only a non-vintage brut. What a wonderful mouthful of toast and biscuit notes. Especially good when I pair this with pate or any other charcuturie for that matter. What a great champagne! What a great value!
Bright on the palate, with a notes of hazelnuts, cream, brioche toast, apple and pear.
I had this at a tasting with 100 Champagnes, 15 being over $100/bottle. (Cristal, Dom...) This was my #3 of the entire tasting. Nose of whipped cream, toast and citrus. Full bodied, balanced and refreshing. This is one of the few well priced wines from wine.com.
