1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millenaires
IN 1993, CHARLES HEIDSIECK RELEASED ITS FIRST BLANC DES MILLÉNAIRES from its prestigious 1983 vintage for the first time. Since then, the House has only unveiled two vintages of this wine, in 1985 and 1995. This shows just how exceptional the Chardonnays from those harvests were! A vintage Blanc de Blancs that owes its name to the Chardonnay grapes, the exclusive variety from which it is produced, as well as to its long aging in the House’s chalk cellars. These unique and spectacular two thousand year old crayères that Charles acquired in 1867 are part of the historical sites of the UNESCO’s world heritage list.
Smooth and sensual, the wine reveals its generosity in notes of salty caramel and its mildness with notes of cream enhanced with hints of citrus, toasted almonds, spices (vanilla and ginger) and cedar wood. A fresh finish highlights the potential of this wine, produced with great Chardonnays.
