The Champagne pink 2005 vintage from the house Charles Heidsieck comes from a harvest which took place during cool, dry and sunny weather. The night-time freshness favored the accumulation of sugars in the grapes of Pinot Noir (30%) and Chardonnay (70%, including 10% of reserve wines (see definition)).
Thanks to the heat and the rain, the bunches displayed an above average weight as well as a very good high sugar content of around 10% potential alcohol volume. Good news to which can be added a very good level of acidity, giving the Cuvée Rosé Millésime 2005 with case from Maison Charles Heidsieck a very promising balance and aging potential.
To the eye, a delicate pearly pink dress with a fine and joyful effervescence.
On the nose, rich and powerful with notes of kirsch and very ripe cherries, pomegranates and plum plums. Notes of brioches and fresh butter are in tune with the spirit of the vintage.
On the palate, subtle aromas, candied grapefruit. The wine is greedy and unrestrained, ample texture and beautiful aromatic persistence. The first tastings reveal particularly exceptional Chardonnays and subtle and aromatic Pinots Noirs.
The 2005 vintage champagne from the Charles Heidsieck house has taken the time to mature patiently, the solar profile of the year has given it this angular and generous structure which takes years to round out and blossom. After more than 10 years on the lees, the wine is there.
