Champagne Charles Heidsieck Rosé Millésimé 2008

Champagne Charles Heidsieck Rosé Millésimé 2008 comprises 11 meticulously selected Grands and Premiers Crus. This vintage presents a blend of 63% Pinot Noir - including 9% red wines - and 37% Chardonnay. The dosage, significantly lower than in previous vintages, is designed to set off the wine’s tart, thirst-quenching character in its early youthful freshness. Comprising 11 meticulously selected Grands and Premiers Crus, the Rosé Millésimé 2008 presents a blend of 63% Pinot Noir - including 9% red wines - and 37% Chardonnay. The initial nose is saline and mineral, underlined by a hint of toast and smoke. Notes of citrus, pink grapefruit, blood orange and red current gradually follow. A discreet fruitiness with more intense notes will be unveiled with time: Morello cherries, liquorice and black tea. On the palate the exuberant mouthfeel is cubic with the typical vivacity of the vintage. The finish is long and creamy, with extremely delicate effervescence at the very end. It is paradoxical to find a wine of such great freshness paired with a structure of such restrained power. The 2008 rosé will always hold a special place in the Charles Heidsieck range of vintage rosés, with an exceptional longevity taking it to culmination in the second half of the 21st century.
