CHARLES HEIDSIECK BRUT MILSIM 2000 CHARLES HEIDSIECK BRUT MILÉSIMÉ 2000

Vintage dated Champagne is always a step up in quality and the 2000 vintage from the house of Charles Heidsieck is no exception. A startlingly good wine with concentration, complexity and elegance, which is everything one should expect from a vintage champagne. A gold medal winner in all the major wine competitions in 2012!


VINEYARD
Charles Heidsieck have built exceptional relationships with the most experienced growers across the entire Champagne region, and can draw on a rich palette of crus. A precise selection of grapes takes place from 60 specific sites across the Champagne appellation.

GRAPE VARIETIES
60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay

VINIFICATION
After the first fermentation in stainless steel, each tank undergoes malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity. Wines from 60 different sites are used in the blend, together with 40% reserve wines (the maximum permitted) with an average age of 10 years.

The blend is then bottled, selected yeast added to begin the second fermentation, then placed in the cellar at a temperature of about 10°C. In order to achieve the depth and complexity required by the house style, Charles Heidsieck age their Non-Vintage champagne for three years before disgorging, much longer than the legal requirement of 15 months.

TASTING NOTE
Elegant shimmering gold in appearance, with persistent, fine bubbles. On the nose, a complex concentration of minerals and grasses with the depth of a fine brandy, give way to Mediterranean fruits of apricot and dates and perfumed acacia honey. The elegant, generous palate has balanced acidity with crisp peach and sweet honey flavours. With infinite length, the structure is large and majestic.
