Tasting Notes

Well-cut and refreshing, this is lacy in texture and finely knit, with rich hints of toasted brioche and candied orange peel accenting the black cherry, salted almond and chalk notes that linger on the finish. Disgorged 2019. Drink now through 2026.

Score: 93

Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator Maturity: 2019-2026 15 December 2019

Dense nose and obvious evolution. More evolved in fact than many 2008s. Creamy rather than angular. Light toast. Lively but not as punchy as some other 2008s.

Score: 17

Jancis Robinson MW, Maturity: 2018-2028 10 September 2019

Disgorged in February 2019 with eight grams per liter dosage, the 2008 Brut Millésimé unfurls in the glass with beautiful aromas of citrus oil, crisp green apple, linden, fresh walnuts and warm bread. On the palate, it's medium to full-bodied, taut and incisive, with a deep and layered core that integrates its racy spine of acidity, excellent concentration and a long, delicately nutty finish. Impeccably balanced, this is Heidsieck's finest vintage bottling since the 1980s.

Score: 95
