Editorial Reviews for Charles Heidsieck Champagne Brut Reserve
Floral and cheesy/leesy on the nose this also shows off wonderfully fresh lemon fruit. Firm and super clean on the palate, this is clear as a bell with fine pithy lemon fruit over gentle but well-delineated almond, wildflower and citrusy flavors. This really pops on the finish where the flavors gain height in the mouth and depth. The finish is really quite long and driven by the fine citrus fruit here. A wine with a distinct purity about it. 93pts
External Reviews for Charles Heidsieck Champagne Brut Reserve
A broad non-vintage brut, with big-boned scale and full richness of texture. What the wine lacks in detail, it makes up for in its length of yeasty, nutty flavor.
Bright pale yellow color. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Smoke, roasted coffee, lemons, minerals. Attractive integrated toasty nose shows hints of roasted coffee. Substantial mouthfeel has a firm minerally backbone with tart lemony flavors and a lingering smoky finish.
Slightly high-toned peach and apple nose, plus a suggestion of older juice. Brisk and toasty on the palate, with good flavor intensity. Actually rather fat and rich, and ripe on the middle palate. then finishes quite dry, with good snap.
Expressive, yeasty aromas of apple, warm biscuits, toasted nuts, truffle and minerals. A rich, nutty midweight, with enticing coffee, mushroom and truffle notes. Smooth and harmonious, with brisk framing acidity. Nicely balanced, midweight Champagne with good intensity and length. Developing nicely.
Bright pale straw color. Brisk, complex aromas of lemon, apple, chicory, cumin, nutmeg and coffee. Very strong, persistent mousse. Spicy, lively and on the dry side, with strong extract and hints of grilled nuts and coffee. Long, tactile finish. Substantial, youthful Champagne.
Herersquo;s something special in a nonvintage brut. It has rich, mature flavors, a velvety-smooth texture supported by lively acidity, and a lingering finish. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.
