Charles Heidsieck’s 2008 Rosé lifts out of the glass with a pronounced and detailed medley of wild strawberries, blood orange, firm peaches and redcurrants – a wonderfully harmonious summer fruit salad with a dash of mint and chalk to awaken those taste buds ready for the first sip. The mouthfeel is silky and luxurious, but contained by the very driven acidity and dry, mineral energy on the palate. With air, the richness builds with aromas of ripe fig and a touch of salted liquorice, but maintaining that nervous, tight energy and fresh composure into its long finish. Delicious.
