A radiant and balanced vintage champagne

The estate

An essential reference for great Champagne wines, the Charles Heidsieck House maintains a prestigious heritage with two thousand year old chalk pits. The pioneering Charles Heidsieck began to distinguish itself from the end of the 1980s through showcasing its multi-vintage Brut champagne’s exceptional capacity for aromatic evolution. In 1987, Charles Heidsieck was the first Champagne house to indicate its cellaring” year so as to follow wine evolution over time.

The vineyard

The Charles Heidsieck Champagne House owns a vineyard of around 60 hectares in Marne and Aube. This vineyard has received sustainable viticulture and High Environmental Value certifications. In addition to its own vineyard and following the Champagne model, Charles Heidsieck supplements its needs through long-term supply contracts with rigorously selected wine-growers and cooperatives.

The wine

In line with 2005, the Vintage Rosé 2006, produced from a selection of 15 Grands Crus and Premiers Crus, follows in the footsteps of exceptional years.

The vintage

With sugar-packed berries displaying a excellent level of ripeness, the quality of the 2006 harvests foreshadowed the birth of a vintage rosé champagne, created only during great years.

Winemaking and ageing

The Vintage Rosé 2006 was subject to a long ageing process of more than 7 years on lees.

Blend

Charles Heidsieck’s Vintage Rosé 2006 is made from a blend of Pinot Noir (63%), Chardonnay (37%) and 8% from red wines from Bouzy, Ambonnay, Verzenay, Hautvillers and Les Riceys.

Tasting

Colour

The wine is a pale shimmery pink with pearly reflections which highlight the delicate effervescence of the string of bubbles.

Nose

The nose reveals an aromatic palette with delicious and powerful scents upon notes of ripe, candied fruit and strawberries, which evolve upon notes of sweet spices alongside fragrances of cinnamon and cardamom.

Palate

The palate seduces from the attack with its deliciously silky and creamy texture. The palate, which is full of depth, invites you on a real journey of flavours upon notes of ripe fruit and pastry, followed by the freshness of spicy and liquorice notes. The finish is warm and persistent.

Wine Advocate-Parker :
Charles Heidsieck's 2006 Brut Rosé (with 10% Pinot Noir red wine) has been launched before the 2005. Disgorged at the end of 2014, the wine offers a delicate and intense wild strawberry flavor with some lovely spicy aromas on the nose. Ample, full and round, this is a lovely matured Rosé with a super intense and aromatic Pinot character (sweet cherries, red berries). The finish underlines the great complexity, purity and finesse of this vinous Rosé. There are cherry aromas again in the long aftertaste. An impressive Rosé.
