A balanced Champagne
At tasting, the Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésima 2005 reveals a gold colour with an effervescence of great finesse. The nose has blueberry pie and plum aromas before expressing fresh and candied chestnuts, honey, praline and hazelnut notes. On the palate, it offers a lovely balance while being firm, round and suave. This smooth, flavourful wine also offers flavours of roasted apricots, dates and figs.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 2005 Vintage Brut - a classic mix of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay -áis a very ripe and concentrated Champagne with a bit of bitterness in the finish. 2005 was austere as a young wine, but since 2015, it shows very well and promises a very good aging potential, finds chef de cave Régis Camus. The wine opens deep, pure and fresh on the nose, with very clear white fruit aromas, spiced bread and a very clear definition. Light, fresh and finesse-full on the silky-textured palate, but also round and intense, this is a very elegant and refined vintage Champagne. It has a pure and fresh finish, and a long and intense aftertaste.
