Charles Heidsieck – Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve Mis En Cave
Champagne

Charles Heidsieck, Brut Réserve (Mis en Cave 2001) NV

RRP £280 (part of a two-bottle pack with Mis en Cave 2000)

This wine is based on the 2000 vintage, which was magical for Charles Heidsieck’s vintage cuvée. The aroma profile is distinctly on the tertiary side, with less prominent toastiness than usual. Charles’ typical dried apricot and honey aromas are well represented in this fully mature wine’s sweet deliciousness, along with mushroomy and woody notes. The charmingly voluptuous palate, however, is full of life, with compact, healthy fruitiness and a refreshing acid line.
