|From the best Champagne house after Krug according to Tom Stevenson|
|With the addition of red wine from the best Pinot cru's|
|20% reserve wines provide a perfect balance between freshness and maturation|
Unique Rosé Champagne
Unique salmon pink color with orange hues. Subtle, playful scent with notes of small red fruit (raspberry), brioche and cinnamon. Generous and rich in taste, yet elegant and refreshing with a fine mousse. The finish is long and refined.
Charles Heidsieck Reserve
'This is a Champagne that looks so perfect in the glass that you know it is going to blow you away, and it does.' Says Champagne expert Tom Stevenson about Charles Heidsieck's rosé Champagne. We have little to add to that. This stylish Champagne from the legendary house Charles Heidsieck is simply one of the most beautiful rosés available.
Charles's secret is to use a fair share of reserve wines, sourced from the best fields and vintages and matured in cask for between five and fifteen years. For Charles Heidsieck's Rosé Réserve Brut, chef de cave Cyril Brun chooses a 20% share of exclusively chardonnay and pinor noir. This ratio between young and reserve wines ensures an optimal balance between fresh, youthful fruit and beautiful ripening notes.
The total blend for the Rosé consists of approximately equal parts chardonnay, pinot noir and meunier. Six percent of pinot noir is red wine; this gives the rosé its subtle orange-pink color. This wine comes from some of the best Pinot crus, namely Ambonnay, Bouzy and Les Riceys, and gives the Champagne an extra generous character.
Only after maturing for at least three years in the centuries-old limestone cellars in Reims, Champagne is disgorged (separated from the yeasts) and bottled. This creates an extremely delicate mousse. Drink this enchanting Rosé young or aged, and preferably on it's own. This wine deserves all the attention!
Drink or keep?
While most non-vintage Champagne is best drunk young, a Champagne of this caliber can also mature in the bottle for several years. Depending on your preference for a young, fresh or more mature style of Champagne, you can drink the Brut Rosé straight away, or keep it for up to 5-6 years. Because a non-vintage Champgane cannot specify a harvest year, Heidsieck has come up with a particularly clever solution. On the back label of the bottle, the house has listed both the mise en crayères and the date de dégorgement. The former date indicates when the Champagne has entered the cellar to mature in the groin, the latter when the yeasts have been removed from the bottle and the Champagne is finally bottled. This way you not only know how long the Champagne has matured on the domain, but also until when you can still keep it yourself!
