Charles Heidsieck Champagne Brut Reserve

Charles Heidsieck Champagne Brut Reserve 750ml        91   
Sku: 1015832

3 day lead-time required to confirm availability Why?

With a balanced portion of all three grape varieties and top growths from throughout the region of Champagne, Charles Heidsieck’s winemaker often refers to Brut Reserve as "the map of Champagne.” Brut Reserve’s aging period is longer than most any other non-vintage Champagne producer.

Tasting notes
Expressive, yeasty aromas of apple, warm biscuits, toasted nuts, truffle and minerals. A rich, nutty midweight with enticing coffee, mushrooms and truffle notes. Smooth and harmonious, with a brisk framing acidity. Nicely balanced Champagne with good intensity and length.

Rating
 Wine Spectator 92 points
Plenty of graphite and honey flavors mark this well-structured, effusive Champagne. Lemon, dough and vanilla accents are also present. Finishes with a tactile sensation around the gums. Drink now through 2010. Score: 92. —Bruce Sanderson, November 30, 2006.

This is a prime example of what I call a classic, and completely admirable, "Big House” NV Brut. The nose is yeasty but not too, there is freshness yet a trace of age, there is complexity yet there is still some primary fruit and the round but still vibrant offer excellent depth and fine length plus, and this is the most important part, real finishing character. A more than respectable example that is a really lovely effort in every respect and while it could be aged to moderate benefit, I probably wouldn't do so beyond 3 years or so. Score: 91. —Allen Meadows,

A big boy with almost fleshy fruit. The flavors push into exotic, tropical richness yet retain spicy citrus-rind highlights. There is nothing clumsy, despite the ripeness; the finish seems to extend almost infinitely and keeps zinging you with surprises—marshmallow, marzipan, cookie dough, etc. An added bonus: the back label clearly indicates when it was bottled and cellared (2001). Score: 94. —Paul Gregutt, December 01, 2006.
