Charles Heidsieck Reserve NV

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Spectator Review Rated 91 Luxurious and inviting in style, this has toasty, vanillin aromas, compelling and complex fruit flavors, a creamy smooth texture and a lingering finish. Much better than when tasted last year. Drink now. <strong>To the eye </strong>A radiant, sustained and very luminous pale golden hue with fine and graceful bubbles.<strong>To the nose</strong> A first nose of pastry with notes of cocoa, pralin and fresh almonds, a delicious sensation half-way between richness, voluptuousness and subtlety that recalls tiramisu, candied fruits and French pastry parisbrest with its hazelnut tender cream. Fresh notes of aromatic herbs just picked such as dill or tarragon enhance the pastry impression.<strong>To the mouth</strong> A crisp and melting impression suggests the texture and lightness of wafer. The wine reveals itself through the fruity notes of white peaches, fresh almonds and pineapple or tropical candied fruits.

There’s a nice, creamy impression on the toast, honey, grapefruit and ginger flavors. It’s medium-bodied, with an open texture and harmony. Drink now. Tasted twice, with consistent notes.

The house style of the highly regarded Charles Heidsieck is readily apparently in this wine: complex yet approachable, full-bodied but lively.

Full-bodied and intensely flavored, this exhibits mature chaacteristics of candied fruit, coffee and vanilla pastry, along with fresh lemon and ginger accents. Seamless harmony and texture, with a long, long finish. Drink now through 2010.

Seductive toast, coffee and hazelnut aromas and flavors highlight the medium-bodied, elegant bubbly. It’s intense, yet graceful, with balance and a long, mineral-tinged aftertaste. Would serve well as an aperitif or with food. Drink now through 2010.

The reserve wines in this blend show in its richness and deep bass notes. It’s a complex Champagne that holds its mature flavors with cleanness and clarity, making it as refreshing as spring water. Scents of green apples and toasty lees add to the firm juiciness. For roast scallops.

Charles Heidsieck is one of Champagneandrsquo;s historic houses. Charles-Camille Heidsieck was an early pioneer in developing export markets for his wine as far back as 150 years ago. Today, this large estate based in Reims makes wines in an easygoing, pretty style. Charles Heidsieckandrsquo;s NV Brut Randeacute;serve is a fresh, floral wine with attractive pear and apple fruit, and an accessible personality. This is Lot 070792 1227, disgorged in 2007. Anticipated maturity: 2008andndash;2010.

This is the Champagne that made the late Daniel Thibault’s name as the maestro of master blender. There was nothing groundbreaking about Thibault’s use of 75% Pinot Noir and Meunier, with 25% Chardonnay, but his massive 40% of reserve wine from eight different vintages in every cuvée was revolutionary. Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve is the only non-vintage Champagne to win a Gold Medal in six out of seven Decanter World Wine Awards. Very fine apple fragrance with elegant creaminess. Very stylish with of bitter almond on the palate, lots of character and refreshing, youthful acidity at the close.
