A lively, elegant style, with floral, vanilla and light toast notes. A lemon cake flavor emerges on the palate, and this is seamless and bright, with a chalky sensation on the long finish. Drink now through 2011.

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.

At an optimal point of maturity, this blend with substantial amounts of reserve wine is filled with delicious leesy richness. Itrsquo;s dynamic and complex, full yet completely dry. Harmonious.

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.

A flavorful, medium-bodied Champagne suitable for hors d'oeuvres or the dinner table.

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.
