    Winemaker's Notes:

    Experience a fully developed wine, with a radiant bouquet that is captivating yet subtle. Although notes of fully ripe fruit, such as nectarines and cherry plums, are apparent initially, the finish reveals the wealth of the gourmet world, hinting at nougat, honey and cereal grains.

    This wine is remarkably smooth and generous on the palate. Three years of maturation have given it body and substance. As the wine opens up, it is full and intense with notes of warm bread blending harmoniously with discreet notes of ginger and coriander.

    The grapes used to produce this exquisite testament to winemaking are selected from the top crus in the Champagne region. 34% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay, 33% Pinot Meunier.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Like a Persian carpet this lovely, elegant Champagne seamlessly weaves together its elements, with fine-grained texture and vibrant acidity joining rich flavors of toast, patisserie fruit and candied lemon zest that show subtle spice notes of cardamom and ginger.

    A great wine, much more than only a Champagne, this is impressively rich and ripe, with crisp yellow fruits, spices and layers of toast. It's in an opulent style that is round but also very focused on tight layers of fruit, minerality and final vivid acidity.

    Light yellow-gold. Fresh citrus and orchard fruit aromas are complemented by deeper notes of sweet butter, honeysuckle and toasty lees. Juicy and incisive on the palate, offering refreshingly bitter orange and pear skin flavors that pick up a smoky nuance with air. Clings nicely on the very persistent finish, which leaves smoke and floral notes behind. Forty percent of the blend is reserve wine, and it shows.

    A substantial portion of reserve wines enriches this and gives it the dark, moon-lit cool of a cellar. It's a study in harmonious contrasts: sweet honeyed fruit and dry minerality; broad creaminess and brighter finesse. A full-bodied, gastronomic Champagne, it’s suited to a range of foods, from simple grilled fish to white meats with mushrooms and cream.

    Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve really exceeded my expectations. I tend to be a champagne traditionalist who appreciates a little more depth and complexity to whatever bubbly I happen to be drinking. Charles Heidsieck drinks like a vintage champagne though it's only a non-vintage brut. What a wonderful mouthful of toast and biscuit notes. Especially good when I pair this with pate or any other charcuturie for that matter. What a great champagne! What a great value!

    I had this at a tasting with 100 Champagnes, 15 being over $100/bottle. (Cristal, Dom...) This was my #3 of the entire tasting. Nose of whipped cream, toast and citrus. Full bodied, balanced and refreshing. This is one of the few well priced wines from wine.com.

    You will love the Charles Heisieck Brut Reserve Champagne. It is such a good value for the price. It tastes like vintage champagne. I love the toasty profile with notes of pear on ginger-buttered fresh baked broiche bread. Awesome starter, but pairs well with main dishes too.

    I was concerned because a couple of bottles from last year weren't very good. But OMG, glad I purchased again. Full, luscious, balanced. Can't wait for the next bottle.

    Wonderful, mouth-filling flavor. Not overly dry, so you can still taste that this is wine. Maintained its effervescence to the last drop.

    Small (perfect sized) bubbles; fruity taste; full robust taste without any bitterness. We had it on business class (United) going to Paris the following week; again it was remarkably delicious.
