Charles Heidsieck

Millésimé Brut Rosé Champagne Blend 2006

Shay A
9.4

My last bottle. When it comes to big house producers, Charles Heidsieck may very well be my favorite. This 2006 rosé has 8-10% still red wine in it, and spent about seven years before disgorgement.

This was opened alongside a Ulysse Collin Les Maillons (which is one of my favorite grower champagnes, yet I’m out at their increasing price point). The inherit sweetness here is so divine. More balanced than the bottle I opened 2-3yrs ago, yet more compact than the 2007 I opened a few months ago. Required about an hour to come in to its own. Salmon-colored in the glass with an intoxicating nose…strawberry shortbread, toasted pastries (cranberry scone), faint limestone. Typical CHeidsieck palate with richness but great focus…turns a bit darker red fruit driven but already possesses a mature-profile with nougat and spiced red fruits at the finish. Definitely some flair of orange zest too. Benchmark vintage rosé!

Vin de Savoie Rosé 2021

Ripe strawberries on the nose and palate, a rich body with light tingly acid and lingering minerals. Just delicious. — 4 days ago

Gevrey Chambertin Pinot Noir 2018

Love this for what it is. Drink it cold and enjoy. Burgundy is expensive, do yourself a favor and buy something a bit off the run. Thanks for the suggestion Brett Taylor. This is my Friday night go to — 8 days ago

Essentiel Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Chardonnay

I have not seen the bottling in the U.S. before and brought it back from a recent overseas trip.
Stone fruits commingling with citrus fruits with light brioche and ginger spice. Creamy yet robust. The freshness, purity, precision, and elegance are all there, which is why BdB is my favorite type of Champagne when done right.
17’ based wine with 30% reserve, disgorged in 21’.
And why not all Champagne bottling display the information already?

Clos de la Dioterie Chinon Cabernet Franc 2015

My favorite #chinon yet. Black fruit, distinctive Jalapeño jam and bell pepper notes, faint violet. Beautifully balanced velvety palate, long mineral finish. Superb pairing with Provençal pork with black garlic and hazelnut vinaigrette. — 18 days ago
