Charles Heidsieck Brut Millésime 2005

Ben Franks Wine Pick Award for Best Ever Wines 98-100pts99/100

(how do my ratings work?)

Hails from: Champagne, France. Grapes: Chardonnay, Pinot Noir

Already a medium gold from its age with a very fine and steady mousse on the eye. Mature, toasty nose followed by a bone-dry palate with green apple fruit, a weighty mouth-coating texture and vibrant acidity. The finish is pleasantly long. This is the kind of Champagne you don’t forget. Pairs really well with mussels or baked salmon.

Sparkling Wine made by: Charles Heidsieck
