A creamy and aromatic vintage rosé champagne

The property

An essential reference among the fine wines of Champagne, the Charles Heidsieck Champagne House watches over a prestigious legacy with chalk cellars dating back two thousand years. A pioneer, Charles Heidsieck distinguished himself at the end of the 1980s by highlighting the exceptional capacity for aromatic development of his multi-vintage Brut champagne. In 1987, Charles Heidsieck became the first Champagne house to indicate the year of "cellaring" in order to follow the evolution of the wine over time.

The vineyard

The Champagne House Charles Heidsieck owns a vineyard of around 60 hectares in the Marne and the Aube. This vineyard benefits from a certification in sustainable viticulture as well as High Environmental Value certification. In addition to its own vineyard and following the Champagne model, Charles Heidsieck supplements estate-grown fruit with grapes sourced through long-term supply contracts with rigorously selected winegrowers and cooperatives in Champagne.

The wine

This Rosé Vintage 2008 by Charles Heidsieck is made up of 11 rigorously selected Grands Crus and Premiers Crus.

The blend

Pinot Noir (63% including 9% red wine)
Chardonnay (37%). With a slightly lower dosage than that of previous vintages, this champagne exudes a tangy and thirst-quenching character in its youth.

Vintage Rosé 2008 by Charles Heidsieck: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

The colour is pale pink, noticeably lighter than that of previous vintages.

Salty and mineral, the first nose reveals fragrances of smoke and toast. Swirling the glass reveals notes of citrus, pink grapefruit, blood orange and currants. While the fruity bouquet is discreet in its youth, this champagne gains in intensity over the years, revealing more complex notes of sour cherry, licorice and black tea.

The palate seduces with its liveliness and density, typical of the vintage. This vintage rosé champagne harmoniously combines a beautiful freshness with a powerful and restrained structure. Persistent and delicious, the finish offers a very pleasant creamy sensation on the palate combined with an effervescence of great finesse.

Food and wine pairings

The smooth structure brought about over 10 years of ageing on lees makes this Rosé Millésimé 2008 from Charles Heidsieck the ideal partner for a grilled red mullet, a salmon tartare with citrus fruits and fresh figs or even an Époisses cheese.
