We’ve had their N/V Blanc but, haven’t had their Rose in awhile. Quite good.
Mousse is very refined. Great mouthfeel. Blood orange, tangerine, rhubarb notes, poached strawberries, black cherries, watermelon near the rind, white spice, oyster shell, grainy chalk, grey volcanics, saline, dry yeast, baguette crust, mint with pink roses dominate with shades of red roses. The acidity is lively. The finish is, pleasantly rich, elegant, well balanced & polished persistent for minutes falling into minerals & spice. — 3 days ago
Brought this back from Paris 12 years ago after being told it was the best at the absinthe store. Intense anise and spring meadow nose that fills the room when poured. High proof and hot, with a burnt herbal quality and a very bitter finish, even with a healthy dose of sugar and ice water. Very pure stuff, pretty sure it would run a car. Hard work though!

This is my first encounter with 2006 Charles Heidsiek Blanc des Millénaires
I'm a big fan of 1995 which I tasted numerous times before.
My impression of 2004 was quite mixed. I did see the signature CH style to it, but I would prefer to keep it for a minimum of 5 more years in the cellar. I thought CH really rushed with it into the market.
2006 release followed right after. I was even surprised why did they release it so soon.
I think I get the idea now. 2006 has everything you want. It has the ripeness of the fruit you expect from the warm vintage. Acidity is just right there.
Reductive style Chardonnay and signature popcorn flavour. Toasty and rich on the palate. That's exactly the blockbuster BdM we were all waiting for.
So let's enjoy 2006 for the next 5 years till 2004 riches its full maturity!

From a lieu dit surrounded by Gevrey. Definitely young but with a couple hour decant quite enjoyable and accessible. Tons of sweet cherry on the nose; aromatically really quite intense. Full on the palate, get more tannin than I was expecting, but very nicely balanced by a lot of acid. Enjoyed it with a roast chicken provencal but could have stood up to red meat too. Nice qpr at ~$30. Note this is not the “cuvee unique”, which apparently a 100% new oak bottling - this is the regular which is 85% old. — 3 days ago
