Charles Heidsieck – Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve Mis En Cave

Charles Heidsieck, Brut Réserve (Mis en Cave 2017) NV

RRP £42

This 2016-based Brut Réserve is the first release to include a small proportion of oak-vinified wines. The proportion of reserve wine has crept up to 46%. Its softly and deeply fruity nose comes with refined, subtle toastiness and sweet coconut, vanilla and candied fruit aromas. There is still tightness on the fresh and vivacious lemony palate that harnesses both power and richness, but its best feature is the already caressingly smooth texture.
