This offers big house complexity in terms of toasty reductive warmth on the nose, as well as an array of grilled peach, praline and wild red berries. The palate has assertive flavorsome appeal, delivered in a well-crafted style. Fresh berries and stone fruits rule the finish.

Based on the 2014 vintage, complemented by fully 40% old reserve wines, the new release of Charles Heidsieck's NV Brut Reserve was disgorged earlier this year. It's showing very well, opening up in the glass with notes of green apple, dried white flowers, pear, candied peel and walnuts. On the palate, the wine is medium to full-bodied, deep and layered, with a textural attack and a racier, tighter-knit core than either the 2012- or 2010-base renditions, displaying good concentration and underlying richness. This is a bottling that continues to punch above its weight and which both merits and rewards a few years in the cellar before opening.

COMPLEX, PROFOUND AND INDULGENT, the Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve has been given the gift of time, as one discovers upon tasting it. The House specifies on each bottle the year of cellaring and of disgorgement to advise connoisseurs on the cellar aging process. The rare, thousand-year-old Crayères, purchased by Charles Heidsieck in 1867, inspired the bottle’s large base and narrow neck to create a new silhouette for the non-vintage wine bottles. This unique shape increases the volume of wine in contact with the lees, thereby enhancing its aromatic range and the complexity of the Brut Réserve.
THE BRUT RÉSERVE EXPRESSES the very quintessence of the Charles Heidsieck style. Easily recognizable, this wine is the result of a unique blend that can be summarized in one equation: 60/40/10. 60: the number of hand-selected crus for a blend that is precise, crisp and tailor-made. Wines produced in the harvest year, a third for each variety (Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Pinot Meunier), are vinified cru by cru, variety by variety, in stainless steel vats. 40: a high proportion of 40% reserve wines, equally divided between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, ensure the fine complexity and voluptuousness of the Brut Réserve. 10: the reserve wines average age, extraordinary for Champagne. Sourced from the best crus produced in the greatest years, the wines placed in reserve are kept for between 5 and 15 years in stainless steel tanks. This maturing time is essential for their refinement and for the development of their aromatic range.
Delicate, vivacious and long-lasting bubbles are the result of a long and slow maturing process. With 40% of reserve wines, the blend offers a complex, voluptuous nose with notes of freshly baked brioche and toasted nuts with mango, apricot along with a touch of dried fruits, pistachio and almond. The texture is plush with citurs, red plums and ripe cherries. The reserve wines, some dating back more than 15 years, give the wine lushness with a touch of praline along with delicate vanilla notes.
