Charles Heidsieck - Blanc des Millenaires 1995
Tasting Notes and Scores
Robert Parker''s Wine Advocate 30/11/2012 The 1995 Brut Blanc des Millenaires shows just how compelling this often overlooked vintage can be. Layers of lemon, pastry, spices, crushed rocks and savory herbs literally jump from the glass. An exquisite, perfumed, beautifully delineated Champagne, the 1995 shows lovely flavor complexity and nuance from its extended time in bottle, yet it also retains plenty of freshness, verve and acidity. This is a great showing from Charles Heidsieck. The 1995 was made before the tenure of the house’s current team, headed by CEO Cecile Bonnefond. It will be very interesting to see what develops at this historic property over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022. ()
So silky-smooth and with Such intense nut toffee! The toastiness is there, but lying swimming in an oily nectar Which Prevent it from really making its way forward as it does in many other Vintages. Pretty sparkling and uplifting charm.
