Charles Heidsieck, Millésime 2012

RRP £70

The nose jumps at you via stunning smoky toastiness and rich biscuit notes that are complemented by generosity of fresh and dried fruits ranging from apricots to tropical fruits and zesty lemony layers. It sits between reductive and oxidative in style, leaning safely towards the former. On the palate, the marriage of the velvety texture, the invigorating tension and the fine bubbles is disarming. Creamy and generous but ending on a fresh note of stylish bitterness.

Price in bond.
