Charles Heidsieck are a Champagne house worth knowing and a consistent favourite here at FINE+RARE. We are therefore delighted to offer their superb prestige cuvee, the 95 point 1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millenaires.
The Blanc de Millenaires a has been met with unanimous praise by the critics, who have called it “exquisite”, “mouthwatering” and, in the words of Richard Juhlin, “already a legend”.
Made of 100% Chardonnay, the Blanc des Millenaires is a precise selection of the very best grapes from the Côte de Blancs, hailing from four Grands Crus and Premier Cru. It has more than 15 years maturation in the heart of Heidsieck’s historic cellars. It has won a number of awards, including Gold at the International Wine & Spirit Competion - an impressive litany of achievements that puts this Champagne firmly at the top of any wish list.
Charles Heidsieck have one simple, overriding ambition; to create the very best Champagne on the market. With numerous awards and wins against much more expensive rivals they appear to have achieved this aim, to the extent that renowned Champagne critic Tom Stevenson has awarded them “almost mythical status” and commented:
“After more than 30 years' intensive experience... I have ripped up my old list of Champagne’s greatest producers and started afresh with Charles Heidsieck firmly at the top.”
As the pinnacle of the Heidsieck range, this incredible prestige cuvee is therefore not to be missed.
