Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Blancs is a wine with a unique texture that cannot be described in traditional oenological terms. A Champagne that elicits all the senses and particularly that of touch. Throughout this cuvée, two of the House's areas of expertise come together: the production of great wines and the art of blending a large selection of chardonnay wines from different years and terroirs.

Tasting Notes: The aromas of mature Chardonnay can be recognised initially: white peach, candied citrus with notes of lime, honeysuckle and fresh hazelnut, giving way to subtle hints of tangerine and lemon.The freshness and tautness mark this typically Charles generosity: the attack is pure and forthright, not aggressive with a surprising suavity for a Blanc de Blancs and emblematic of the maturation of wines in two thousand-year-old chalk cellars.
