Champagne Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésimé 2008

Champagne Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésimé 2008 is a composition of Pinot Noir (60%) and Chardonnay (40%) sourced from ten Grand and Premier Crus (Oger, Vertus, Chouilly, Cuis, Verzy, Aÿ, Ludes, Ambonnay, Tauxières and Avenay) each meticulously selected by the Chef de Caves. After the first fermentation in stainless steel vats, the wines were racked to separate the lees and then underwent malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity and improve texture. After blending the two varieties, the cuvée was bottled and yeast added for second fermentation. The bottles were placed in the cellars in spring 2009, and remained ageing on lees for ten years. After disgorgement and dosage of 8g/l, the wine was aged for a further six months before release. The Brut Millésimé 2008 is a brilliant golden yellow in colour with a delicate effervescence. The nose is complex with aromas of candied citrus and dried fruits with notes of pecan and hazelnut. On the palate the wine has generous texture and a pronounced minerality. Flavours of caramel and citrus carry through to the long finish.
