CHAMPAGNE AND OTHER SPARKLING WINES

Fizz - CHARLES HEIDSIECK, Brut Réserve. Champagne

CHARLES HEIDSIECK, Brut Réserve. Champagne

Alcohol Percentage: 12%
Area: Based in Reims, Charles Heidsieck own (or buy grapes from) 120 different vineyards. Unlike most areas, it is the blending of different 'terroirs' that is invariably the key to top quality Champagne
Grape Variety: 34% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Noir, 33% Pinot Meunier; bottle matured on lees for a minimum of 3 years before release
Producer: Charles Heidsieck have had a mixed history but for the last 15 years have been making outstanding wines. Since 2002 Regis Camus has been head winemaker. One of the house's remarkable features is that it releases its wines fully mature. Almost 40% of this blend is "reserve wine" - wine held back from previous years
Cellar Potential: Will steadily improve for 3 years then keep for 3 more
Food Match: A Champagne style with the (rare) richness of a white Burgundy - and so a great match for food, even standing up to veal, pheasant or guinea fowl
Old Bridge Rating: Now the leading 'Grande Marque' house for mature styles. This has toasty richness finely balanced by firm freshness - top quality by any standards
Press Reviews: Ever successful in competitions, the results in 2013 include an International Wine Challenge Trophy, Sommelier Wine Awards Critic’s Choice and Decanter Wine Awards Gold Medal. 2014 was similar, including Gold Medal and top non-vintage wine in the Sommelier Wine Awards
