Wine Enthusiast, December 2022

Even the nonvintage cuvée from this top producer has bottle age, so the yeasty edge and touches of almonds balance with the Champagne's acidity and fruitiness of white fruits and citrus flavors. This fine poised wine is...

Decanter, October 2023

Even in the tricky 2017 vintage, Charles Heidsieck turns out an impeccable NV. The reserves form a serious, appetising core of dried apricot and sourdough around which zesty citrus, raspberry and bitter almond offer...

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 9998 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne Reserve is a remarkable white wine that embodies the essence of the Champagne region in France. With its elegant appearance and exquisite taste, this wine is sure to captivate even the most discerning palate.

In the glass, the wine displays a radiant white color that shimmers with a touch of golden hues. Its effervescence is lively and persistent, creating a stunning display of bubbles that dance elegantly on the surface. The nose is deep, refined, and complex, offering a delightful blend of aromas. Notes of apple and nectarine intertwine with hints of patissière and hazelnut, creating a symphony of scents that are both inviting and alluring. The underlying presence of chalky soil tones and a subtle smoky topnote add a layer of complexity to the bouquet.

On the palate, the wine is bright, full-bodied, and focused. It reveals an excellent core of fruit that is beautifully complemented by a lovely soil signature. The mousse is exceptionally elegant, adding a luxurious texture to the wine. The finish is long, poised, and perfectly balanced, leaving a lasting impression that lingers on the palate.

The Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne Reserve is a non-vintage wine that benefits from seven years of aging on its fine lees.
