Winemaker's Notes:

A beautiful, sustained golden tint. A bouquet of dried flowers, then more powerful notes of candied fruit and dried apricots. Notes of almonds, hazelnuts and rich fruit on the palate. This is a warm wine, quite powerful but well balanced, which has matured well over the years.

About Charles Heidsieck:

From the very start, the wines of Charles Heidsieck managed to seduce the royal courts of Europe. Today, the House’s wines are awarded the highest accolades by professional juries across the world. The quantity of medals and trophies regularly earned by Charles Heidsieck is simply extraordinary. The winemaking team has been awarded the “Winemaker of the Year” trophy nine times by the UK International Wine Challenge.

Régis Camus joined Charles Heidsieck in 1994 and has been the head winemaker of the House since 2002. This meticulous and passionate professional likes to keep an eye on everything: the state of the vineyards, the selection of the grapes, their pressing and their vinification, cru by cru, in individual vats. His mission is to perpetuate the Charles Heidsieck style, reflecting the richness of the Champagne region.
