Champagne Charles Heidsieck Rosé Millésimé 2005

Champagne Charles Heidsieck Rosé Millésimé is predominately Pinot Noir (70%) alongside Chardonnay (30%) made from a selection of 12 Grand and Premiers Crus throughout Champagne: Ay, Ambonnay, Louvois, Tauxières, Ludes, Cumières, Verzy, Villers Marmery, Vertus, Avize, Oger, Trépail, Les Riceys and La Montagne de Reims for the red wines. After the first fermentation, the wine was racked to separate the lees and then underwent malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity. 8% of the blend was vinifed as a red wine. After blending, the cuvée was bottled and selected yeast was added to begin the second fermentation. The bottles were placed in the cellar at a temperature of about 10°C to age for a minimum of eight years before release. In the glass, the 2005 rosé is an elegant, pearly pink with a delicate bubble. The nose is deeply perfumed with luxuriant notes of kirsch, ripe cherries, fleshy plums, pomegranates and cranberries. Pastry aromas follow, with notes of brioche and fresh butter that characterise the spirit of this vintage. On the palate, there are delicate flavours of candied grapefruit and earthier notes. This full-bodied and indulgent wine has a long-lasting, aromatic finish.
