Pinot Noir/Pinot Meunier/Chardonnay Blend * 75cl * 12% ABV * Champagne, France
We're big fans of this rich and decadent champagne. A nose that is both complex and attractive, Charles Heidsieck is one of the most recognised houses by the profession. The awards belong to the cellar masters who, over the course of the past two decades, have been named Sparkling Winemaker of the Year thirteen times in the International Wine Challenge (IWC). And a little Champagne fact for you too - Charles Heidseck was the original 'Champagne Charlie' thanks to his, ahem, ebulliant style of marketing in the US...
A regular trophy winner at The Wine Merchant Top 100 competition, the judges have said, 'Hosanna in excelsis, this is a truly superb Champagne. Biscuity with citrus notes, perfectly integrated and hinting at some maturity. A benchmark for quality non-vintage Champagne, this would be a must-buy special occasion wine.'
We think Champagne Charlie would be proud.
