A diamond amongst Charles Heidsieck cuvees, the Blanc des Millénaires takes its incomparable nuances from the pale surroundings of the thousand-year-old Crayères, or chalk cellars. Because of their exceptional qualities, few Blancs de Blancs will reach this level of excellence.
Colour: A deep golden hue with glints of light green, invoking an image of sunshine playing on leaves.
Aroma: Floral notes of violets and acacia lead into deeper notes of blood orange and finally a hint of the Mediterranean maquis. When swirled in the glass, fruity notes appear (fresh pineapple, apricot, fig, date) with a pronounced intensity.
Palate: Remarkable texture is the special signature of Blanc des Millénaires. Beginning with a saline and chalky texture, the palate moves into creamy notes of nougat, citrus and whipped cream, with a round and generous finish, almost glowing with toasted accents.
Grape Varieties: 100% Chardonnay
Awards: Gold – International Wine Challenge 2021; 94pts – Wine Advocate-Parker; 93pts – Vinous; 94pts – Decanter; 96pts – Wine Specatator
