Wine Enthusiast, December 2022

One of the great Blanc de Blancs Champagnes, this wine only hints of its age and maturity. Up front, the wine has layers of white fruits and a steely texture. It is behind those features that the brioche and almond...

Decanter, March 2022

Seven up for Charles Heidsieck; the seventh release of their magnificent Blanc des Millénaires Champagne, the 2007. Their charismatic chef de caves, Cyril Brun, describes the wine as ‘dangerous’, as in dangerously good...

Intense oyster-shell and candied-lemon aromas pull you into this very elegant champagne, which is so precise on the sleek and focused palate with a finish of crystalline purity and brightness. Still really youthful...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate, August 2022

Cyril Brun considers the 2007 vintage more interesting for Chardonnay than 2008, and Charles Heidsieck's 2007 Brut Blanc de Blancs Blanc des Millénaires is certainly a compelling wine. Unwinding in the glass with scents...

The 2007 Champagne Blanc de Millenaires is floral with honeysuckle, fresh pear, and fresh pastry. The palate fills with fresh Meyer lemon, green apple, and has a soft yet linear mineral feel. Drink 2023-2043.

Wine Spectator, December 2022

Sleek and linear, with racy acidity defining the up-front impact on the palate, but then the plushly creamy texture deftly delivers woven aromas and flavors of apricot and ripe white raspberry, pickled ginger, white...

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.

A masterpiece from the Cote des Blancs made exclusively from Chardonnay grapes, Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Millenaires is a delicate, distinctive bubbly, the result of more than 15 years of aging in Gallo-Roman chalk cellars.

It comes from a strict selection of no more than 4 grand crus and one premier cru, which grants a unique nobility, elegance and generosity to this wine. The rich bouquet offers up aromas of dried and candied fruits such as hazelnuts, almonds and dates. There are also heady notes of beeswax and nougat.

A voluptuous, velvety and yet delicate texture is characteristic of Blanc des Millenaires. Smooth and sensual, the wine reveals its generosity in notes of salty caramel and its mildness in a hint of almond milk, complemented by subtle notes of vanilla and cedar wood.
