Charles Heidsieck Rosé Réserve is a prestigious rosé Champagne produced by the renowned Champagne house Charles Heidsieck, based in Reims. The house has a long history dating back to 1851 and is recognized for its commitment to quality, consistent style, and the impressive complexity of its wines.
The Rosé Réserve is no exception to this rule. This Champagne is a blend of Pinot Noir, Chardonnay, and Pinot Meunier, and the use of reserve wines often represent more than 20% of the blend. The addition of these aged wines contributes to the complexity and maturity of the final product.
The Pinot Noir in the blend brings structure and power, Chardonnay adds elegance and finesse, and Pinot Meunier imparts softness and fruitiness. A small portion of red wine made from Pinot Noir is added to give the Rosé Réserve its distinct pink hue and additional red fruit flavors.
The Rosé Réserve is the result of meticulous attention and stands out for its unconventional character. The Rosé Réserve is also the result of juices from the first press only and, the wine benefits from a slow and long maturation of 3 to 4 years, far beyond the norms of the region.
In terms of appearance, Charles Heidsieck Rosé Réserve presents a sophisticated powdery pink robe with luminous glints of wild rose. Delicate vivacious bubbles are the result of an aging period of over 48 months.
On the nose, you can expect a complex bouquet of fresh red fruits like strawberries and raspberries mixed with the fruitiness of vineyard peaches. You will also find warm velvety notes of gingerbread.
On the palate, the deep powerful mouthfeel offers a burst of strawberry, raspberry and blackberry nestled in velvety whipped cream.
Charles Heidsieck Rosé Réserve pairs beautifully with a variety of dishes, including seafood, white meat, and even some red fruit desserts. It can also be enjoyed as an aperitif, or simply on its own, to fully appreciate its complexity.
