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!⁣
