Description

2012 was an evident vintage for Charles Heidsieck. After a brilliant 2008 vintage that we had to wait for, 2012 is a “classic” vintage in the noble sense of the word. Made of ten meticulously selected Grands Crus and Premiers Crus, this cuvée seduces with its appealing smoothness, its aromatic intensity and its saline freshness, characteristic of the House.

The elegance and deepness of the Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésime 2012 make it ideal for tasting. It will perfectly pair with the finest dishes.

Crafted for long ageing, this vintage will easily find its place in your cellar and will undoubtedly retain all its freshness.

Tasting notes

The colour of the 2012 is a beautiful pale yellow gold, the bubble is fine and dynamic.

The first nose is still shy: grilled, smoky notes, liquorice evoking mineral earth. After a while the wine opens up, the fruitiness takes on another dimension: apricot, sloe, quince, fresh almonds, with an exotic touch of blueberry. This aromatic concentration is typical of the vintage, which makes it so interesting.

The attack is mineral with a lot of tension; the freshness is well present, signature of its noble composition. The mid-palate reveals notes of quince, vanilla and vine peach. The finish is firm, crisp, cubic with a length that will be an invitation to gastronomy. A nice vintage to which time will bring a lot of complexity and generosity.

Food pairings

Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésime 2012 is ideally suited to flavours from the land: smoked poultry breast, bean salad with coriander. From the sea: Roast monkfish with Serrano sauce and oyster mushrooms. Or sweet notes such as a caramel and salted butter millefeuilles with roasted hazelnut slivers.
