Take 60% wines of the year – by mixing a third Pinot Noir, one-third Pinot Meunier and one-third Chardonnay – and make up the rest by adding reserve wines consisting of half-and-half Pinot Noir Chardonnay and what do you get? The Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve, of course, complete with a bright gold dress glowing with silver streaks and a graceful, effervescent charisma that simply exudes charm.
Champagne Tasting :
With its gourmet nose, marked strongly by notes of hazelnut, praline and alluring dark chocolate, it's light and contains hints of delicious rich pastry. Soon after come the herbs: dill and tarragon, enhancing an already sumptuous flavour.
The silky palate is a measure of all these qualities, and offers up fruit aromas of tropical fruits, pineapple and peach. The mouth is therefore full, making the finish of this bottle intense and delicious.
