Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve Champagne 2005

Alcohol : 12%
Throughout all of France, the 2005 harvests were magnificent. The 2005 harvest in Champagne was particularly successful due to a cold, dry winter, an early heat wave in June that promoted flowering, a reasonable amount of rainfall in the summer and, finally, a return to high temperatures in early September, ideal for ripening the grapes.
The deep golden robe presents a delicate, lively effervescence. A voluptuous impression.
Warm and autumn like, the nose offers fragrances of candied chestnuts and honey with surprising notes of praline and lightly toasted hazelnuts..
The incredible balance offers the firmness expected of a great champagne as well as the opulence of autumn with generous flavours of roasted apricots, dates and figs which delicately coat the palate.
