Tasting Notes

Based on the 2012 vintage, the latest rendition of Heidsieck's NV Blanc de Blancs incorporates some 20% reserve wines, derived from younger vintages to emphasize what Cyril Brun described as the "youthful" side of Chardonnay, in contrast to the mature expression of that cépage offered by the house's Blanc de Millénaires. Unwinding in the glass with aromas of citrus oil, white flowers, green apple and walnut oil, complemented by some of the empyreumatic nuances so typical of the base vintage, it's a medium to full-bodied, elegantly textural and incisive wine that's lively and inviting. It was disgorged last year with nine grams per liter dosage.

Hints of toast and hazelnut form a rich thread running through the poached pear, plum, preserved lemon and grated ginger flavors of this mouthwatering Champagne, with a satiny bead. Disgorged 2017. Drink now through 2021. 90 cases imported.

Launched in May 2018, this new cuvée was inspired by the very first blanc de blancs produced by the house in 1947, well before this style became fashionable. Based on the 2012 harvest, with 20% reserve wine dating back to 2005, this is not a baby version of Blanc des Millénaires, but more of an aperitif style. Fresh, pure and elegant with aromas of white peach, grapefruit and some floral notes. There’s beautiful salinity on the palate, with the acidity melting into the wine with a chalky sensation and creaminess on the finish
