Charles Heidsieck is one of the most admired Champagne houses thanks to the unrivalled and consistently high quality of its wines. Founded in 1851 in Reims by Charles-Camille Heidsieck who would become known as ‘Champagne Charlie’, this family-owned house produces some of the finest of all champagnes.

Charles Heidsieck is one of the most awarded champagnes in the world. Its Cellar Masters have been recognized no less than twelve times as “Sparkling Winemaker of the Year” over an eighteen-year period.

Charles Heidsieck have built exceptional relationships with the most experienced growers in the entire Champagne region.

The Champagne Rosé Réserve is a deliciously fresh wine which perfectly expresses the complexity of the Charles Heidsieck style. It is coral-like in appearance, with subtle orange reflections reminiscent of antique roses. Delicate aromas of wild strawberries and almond pastries gradually become more intense alongside rich, warm notes of gingerbread and cinnamon. Following a silky-rich texture, the finish is long and balanced. To achieve the depth and complexity required by the house style, Charles Heidsieck age their Rosé Réserve champagne for 48-60 months before disgorging; much longer than the legal requirement of 15 months.

The grape varieties from this great rosé blend are 37% Chardonnay, 37% Pinot Noir and 26% Meunier.
