Charles Heidsieck, Blanc de Blancs, N/A

Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Blancs emanates from the esteemed Champagne house, Charles Heidsieck, established in Reims in 1851. This sparkling wine carries the elegance and sophistication that the house is renowned for.

True to its name, Blanc de Blancs is crafted solely from Chardonnay grapes, a variety widely used in Champagne production. The grapes are sourced from premium vineyards, or crus, in the Côte des Blancs, a region in Champagne lauded for its exceptional Chardonnay.

These Chardonnay grapes undergo an aging process of 3-4 years in the cellars, which lends a profound depth and complexity to the wine. The wine in the glass presents a pale, crystalline gold hue, mirroring the characteristic glints of the Chardonnay varietal.

The aromas of this mature Chardonnay first hit the nose with scents of white peach, candied citrus coupled with lime undertones, honeysuckle, and freshly picked hazelnut. These initial fragrances give way to subtle hints of tangerine and lemon.

The tasting experience of Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Blancs is marked by its freshness and tautness. The first sip is pure and forthright, exuding an unconventional smoothness for a Blanc de Blancs, which is more often associated with a sharp taste rather than a creamy one. The harmonious finish surprises with its minerality and a touch of salinity.

The versatility of Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Blancs makes it an ideal match for a variety of food pairings. It can be enjoyed as an aperitif or served with a wide range of dishes, from seafood and shellfish to poultry and light cheese-based dishes.
