Charles Heidsieck Rose Reserve NV Magnum (1.5Ltr)
A refined fine pink rosé, with iridescent flickers of wild rose. Sensitive, vivacious air pockets are the consequence of a maturing time of more than 36 months.
A base of 20% of store wines, white and red, give this rosé mix an unpretentious, yet complex nose.
The introductory aromas from the 5-6% of rich red wines are aromatic of home-made strawberry jam blended with the fruitiness of blood peach. A careful choice of crus give the Charles Heidsieck Rosé Réserve the rich warm notes of gingerbread and cinnamon.
The profound effective mouth-feel, the aftereffect of maturing in thousand-year old basements, offers a burst of strawberry, raspberry and blackberry settled in smooth whipped cream.
36% Pinot Noir, 36% Chardonnay, 28% Pinot Meunier
Residual Sugar 11.2g/l
After the first fermentation in stainless steel every tank experiences malolactic aging to mellow the normal causticity. Subsequent to mixing with a base of 20% red and white store wines, and 5-6% of the Pinot Noir having been vinified as a red wine, the cuvée is packaged and yeast added to start the second maturation. The bottles are set in the basement at a temperature of around 10°C. Keeping in mind the end goal to accomplish the profundity and unpredictability required by the house style, Charles Heidsieck age their Non-Vintage champagne for a long time before ejecting, any longer than the legitimate prerequisite of 15 months.
Charles Heidsieck is one of most respected Champagne houses on account of the unrivaled and reliably high caliber of its wines. The present extent is a standout amongst the most recompensed accumulations of wines on the planet, something underlined when Chef de Cave Thierry Roset was named 'Shimmering Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge this year. This was the fifteenth time that Charles Heidsieck's winemaking group had won this honor, yet the first for Thierry, who has been working at the house following 1988. He assumed control over the reins in 2012, having worked with both the immense Régis Camus and the unbelievable Daniel Thibault. This winemaking legacy, combined with the house's colorful history since its establishment in 1851 by the man who might get to be known as 'Champagne Charlie', makes it a novel offering from Champagne: a house with awesome wines, champagne legacy and demonstrated quality all through its extent.
