The soul of great champagnes

Founded in Reims in 1851, Charles Heidsieck is one of the noblest names in Champagne. Cultivating a uniquely recognizable style of elegance, complexity and generosity, in perfect symbiosis.

Charles Heidsieck, a gentleman, elegant entrepreneur, determined to reinvent himself

Charles Heidsieck was bold, visionary and resolutely charismatic. Charles Camille Heidsieck was born in 1822. His great uncle was at the origin of Champagne Heidsieck Cie, founded 37 years earlier. Educated and raised in the influence of Reims and Prussian traditions, Charles decided at the age of 29 to strike out on his own. In 1851, he founded Maison Charles Heidsieck in Reims.
Then, in 1852, Charles Heidsieck left for America. The man knows how to make a place for himself in the very closed circle of American elites. Much appreciated, he even earned the nickname “Champagne Charlie”.
This true conqueror returned to Europe and continued the House’s success, becoming supplier to many of Europe’s royal courts.

Les CrayĂšres, the jewel in the crown of the Charles Heidsieck House, listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site since 2015.

In 1867, Charles Heidsieck acquired forty-seven CrayĂšres dating back to the 2nd century, representing over eight kilometers of underground galleries dug right into the chalky rock thirty meters below ground. Thanks to the constant temperature, time does its work here. They house several million bottles, which are left to mature patiently for a minimum of four years, and sometimes more than forty.
A true jewel of the House and an architectural showcase, Charles Heidsieck’s crayĂšres have been listed as a Unesco World Heritage Site since 2015.

In 2011, Charles Heidsieck enters a new era in its history when it is acquired by the Descours family. Today, the mission of Elise Losfelt, the new cellar master, is to continue the Charles Heidsieck enterprise and perpetuate the values of this great family of Champagne pioneers, for whom the world is the only horizon.

Caring for the land entrusted to us

Supplies come in part from the 75 hectares of the family group’s vineyards, 25% of which are Grands Crus. They are harmoniously distributed between the Marne and Aube regions to reflect the diversity of the Champagne terroir.

Prioritizing sustainable viticulture is a matter of course

Since 2015, the Charles Heidsieck vineyard has been certified “Viticulture Durable en Champagne” and “Haute Valeur Environnementale”. These commitments are aimed at improving compliance with :

  • The environment: just as you don’t take medication if you’re in good health, La Maison uses organic fertilizers if and only if treatments are deemed necessary.
  • Biodiversity: the company favors a natural solution to keep pest larvae away from the vines, using butterfly mating disruption rather than insecticides.
  • Soil maintenance: to preserve soil life, since 2005, 80% of the vineyard has been grassed (no chemical weedkillers), with a target of 100% by 2020.

Earning the trust of generations of winemakers

To complete its supplies, the House relies on long-term partnerships with many of the region’s winegrowers: solid bonds are formed, sometimes renewed over four generations. This mutual trust helps everyone to progress in the cultivation of the vines. Like time and selectivity, this delicacy enriches quality.

Need help or advice? Here you’ll find answers to the most frequently asked questions about Charles Heidsieck Champagnes.

Champagne Charles Heidsieck produces a range of cuvées, including Brut Réserve, Rosé Réserve, Blanc de Blancs, Brut Vintage and the prestige cuvée Blanc des Millénaires Vintage.

Charles Heidsieck champagnes are distinguished by their perfect balance of freshness, complexity and richness. The high proportion of reserve wines (40% on average) and a minimum cellar maturation period of three years make these champagnes of character the most awarded in the world.

To preserve Charles Heidsieck Champagne in the best possible conditions, we recommend that you store the bottles lying down in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and any sudden changes in temperature.

The word “RĂ©serve” on a bottle of Charles Heidsieck Champagne means that the wine contains reserve wines that have been aged in oak barrels before being added to the final blend. These reserve wines give Champagne greater complexity and aromatic richness.

The prestige cuvée Blanc des Millénaires Vintage is made from Chardonnays from the Grand Crus and Premier Crus of the CÎte des Blancs. The wines are vinified in oak barrels and aged for almost 15 years in the thousand-year-old chalk pits of the Maison Charles Heidsieck, from which the wine takes its name. This lively, mineral Champagne offers incomparable aromatic complexity and exceptional ageing potential (up to 30 years).

Charles Heidsieck Champagnes are best enjoyed at a temperature of 8-10°C in a tulip-shaped glass. Vintage champagnes or prestige cuvées, which have benefited from long cellar aging, need room to express all their qualities and fully appreciate all their complexity.

The Brut Réserve, Rosé Réserve and Vintage cuvées are the perfect match for earthy flavors such as mature charcuterie and cheeses, poultry, duck breast or lamb. The Blancs de Blancs and Blancs des Millénaires cuvées are the perfect accompaniment to seafood platters, white fish tartar, generous oysters and other seafood dishes.
