Wine Enthusiast, December 2020

Pale in color, but rich in texture and fruit, this wonderfully mature rosé is structured from 70% Pinot Noir in the blend. There is a nutty character to the wine that springs from the wine's richness and the mellifluous...

Champagne Charles Heidsieck was founded in 1851 by Charles-Camille Heidsieck, an entrepreneur and a visionary. He decided to concentrate on producing and aging wine, leaving the vineyards to the expertise of growers, and purchased forty-seven chalk cellars dating from the 11th century. This labyrinth of underground alcoves and galleries offered ideal conditions for aging and enhancing his wines.

Following his dream of a wider audience for his exceptional wines, Charles left for America in 1852 (at that time a market still untouched by the Champagne trade) and became an ambassador for Champagne and France. He won over the South, including wild Louisiana, and became known as “Champagne Charlie”.

Today, Charles Heidsieck is one of Champagne's premier houses, producing both vintage and non-vintage cuvees. Charles Heidsieck champagne is one of the most recognized by the profession, earning awards, gold medals and trophies over the years.

The 2005 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne Rose is a truly exceptional wine that embodies the elegance and sophistication of the Champagne region in France. This beautiful rosé is made from a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, with 8% of red wine added to enhance its color and complexity. With a vibrant rose hue, it immediately catches the eye and promises a delightful sensory experience.

Upon pouring, the wine reveals a mesmerizing cascade of tiny bubbles that dance in the glass, creating an enchanting visual display. The aromas are immediately captivating, with notes of red berry fruit, orange zest, rose petal, and a hint of spice. It is a bouquet that invites you to delve deeper and explore the layers of complexity that lie within.

On the palate, the 2005 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne Rose showcases remarkable depth and concentration. The red berry fruit flavors are complemented by nuances of baked white cherry, raspberry, saffron, brioche, and citrus peel. These flavors are expertly balanced by vibrant acidity, which adds freshness and liveliness to the wine. The texture is satiny-smooth, enveloping the palate with a luxurious mouthfeel.

The critics have unanimously praised this wine for its exceptional quality. Decanter awarded it 92 points, noting its gastronomic style and amazing depth. Wine Spectator gave it an impressive score of 94, highlighting its rich toasty overtone and elegant character. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate described it as a serious, vinous rosé with a fleshy core of fruit and a lovely chalky grip on the finish, giving it a score of 93. Vinous also rated it 92 points, praising its bright and effusive aromatics. Wine Enthusiast awarded it a remarkable 96 points, emphasizing its rich texture, fruit, and nutty character. James Suckling, another renowned critic, scored it 94 points, describing it as powerful, mouth-filling, and complex.

Overall, the 2005 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne Rose is a truly outstanding wine that showcases the mastery of its producer. It is a wine that deserves to be savored slowly, allowing the flavors and aromas to unfold and transport you to the enchanting vineyards of Champagne.
