Charles Heidsieck Champagne Charlie (cellared in 2017 in wooden box)

Champagne, France

Regular price $5,750.00

It's been 37 years since we the last release of Champagne Charlie (also the nickname of the house’s founder), and it's exciting to see the triumphant return of this iconic cuvée on the bicentennial of Charles-Camille Heidsieck! It celebrates the Franco-American history which started 160 years ago, when Charles made his journey to the United States to forge his dynasty. This cuvée embodies the legendary Charlie - his passion, free vision and audacity. This gem is built on a wealth of reserve wines aged on lees for up to 25 years, and blended with 20% of 2016 vintage. Initial aromas of grapefruit, fresh vineyard peach and apricot, grilled pineapple with layers of toasted and mineral notes.  Serve it in a wider wine glass and let the freshness and complexity shine through with tangerine perfume, dried fruit, honey and touches of vanilla, caramel and pastry. Sumptuous on the palate – the texture is luxurious and refined yet deliciously mellow. Imagine Amalfi lemons with freshly baked butter biscuits on the balcony off the coast of Positano! It’s fresh, silky yet fleshy and rich. Vibrant and harmonious bubbles with a lingering candied citrus and passionfruit finish. Mis en cave in 2017 and disgorged in late 2021.  Only 24 bottles of this sixth edition (previous editions : 1979, 1981, 1982, 1983 and 1985) is available for Hong Kong.
