Champagne Charles Heidsieck Rosé 2008

Champagne, FranceThis special blend of 63% Pinot Noir, 37% Chardonnay (including 9% Red Wine) is entirely Grand and 1er cru fruit, from 15 different crus. This aged 10 years on lees, and was disgorged with 7 g/L in January 2021. Serious stuff this, with numerous layers of cherry meringue, wild raspberry, light toast, and deep chalk, carved by lemon pith and peel, and buoyed by a cranberry acidity. So well knit and harmonious, with wonderful depth, and length, this beautiful wine is drinking lovely now, and still with time ahead. Rare to have this much finesse in a rosé. Well done Charlie.Tasted: 19 April 2022Tasted by: Treve RingPrices:
