Charles Heidsieck was born in 1822. He founded his Champagne house at 29 years old. It was the first Champagne house to chaunch their wines in America where Mr. Heidsieck got the nickname “Champagne Charlie”. When he travelled to the south during the war in 1861 he got caught, accused of being a French spy. He was released in 1862 thanks to Napoleon III and Abraham Lincoln.
Charles Heidsieck started on the hard work that has led the champagne house to create some of the world’s best champagnes today. 6 years go it was bought by the Descours family who has put in great efforts to ensure that Charles Heidsieck remains among the very best Champagnes.
Winemaknig and terroir
The vinification is separated for each location and grape variety in steel tanks. The Champagne is resting on the lees for 8 years which gives the wine length and concentration.
Terroir: Mostly limestone
This is a Champagnen with high concentration and clear tones of red cherries, pomegranate, cranberries and toasted brioche as well as elegant spice and minerality. The aftertaste is deep and long.
60% Pinot noir, 40% Chardonnay
