CHARLES HEIDSIECK BLANC DE BLANCS CHAMPAGNE, FRANCE 2019
Varietal: 100% Chardonnay
Region: Champagne, France
What's So Special: Gentleman and entrepreneur in the audacious 19th century, Charles Heidsieck was heir to a Champagne fortune, a rebel with an extraordinary thirst for adventure. At age 29, he founded a Champagne House in his image: authentic, distinguished and which stands out among all others. In keeping with this spirit, his grandson Charles-Marcel created a Blanc de Blancs, consolidating the style of a House that manifests itself across all varietals.
Tastes Like: Freshness and tautness mark this typically Charles generosity: the attack is pure and forthright, not aggressive but almost unconventionally suave for a Blanc de Blancs, so often characterized as sharp rather than creamy. The harmonious finish offers surprising minerality and a slight salinity.
