Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Blancs Millenaires 1995 (750ML)
94 WA 95 WS 94 IWC
"Elegant, showing fine integration and a silky weave of ripe yellow peach, lemon pound cake, espresso and crystallized honey flavors, all underscored by accents of toasted brioche, honey and roasted almond that add richness without weight. Delivers a mouthwatering finish, with a lasting tang of sea salt...95" WS Insider 11/13 "The 1995 Brut Blanc des Millenaires shows just how compelling this often overlooked vintage can be. Layers of lemon, pastry, spices, crushed rocks and savory herbs literally jump from the glass. An exquisite, perfumed, beautifully delineated Champagne, the 1995 shows lovely flavor complexity and nuance from its extended time in bottle, yet it also retains plenty of freshness, verve and acidity. This is a great showing from Charles Heidsieck. The 1995 was made before the tenure of the house’s current team, headed by CEO Cecile Bonnefond. It will be very interesting to see what develops at this historic property over the coming years. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2022...94" Antonio Galloni, The Wine Advocate 11/12 "Vivid gold. Heady aromas of candied citrus fruits, flowers, truffle, gingerbread and iodine, with an intensely smoky overtone. Deep, pungent and palate-staining, with the orchard and pit fruit flavors reaching every corner of the palate and showing impressive power without any excess weight. Even more extroverted than last year's release, finishing with excellent cling and lingering smokiness. ....94" IWC 10/11 "The Charles Heidsieck Champagne house follows a rather iconoclastic path with its top bottlings, as it offers up two distinct Tête de Cuvées, the Blanc de Millenaires and the Champagne Charlie bottlings. The Blanc de Millenaires is only offered on anoccasional basis, with previous releases only having been made in the vintages of 1983, 1985 and 1990. Each vintage is aged a minimum of ten years on the lees prior to disgorgement, with the chardonnay fruit for this bottling hailing from the famed Côte desBlancs villages of Avize, Cramant, Oger and Vertus. The 1995 is stunning, as it soars from the glass in a profound and youthful blend of delicious apples, pears, fresh-baked bread, a lovely base of limestone, floral tones and stylish topnote of fresh nutmeg. On thepalate the wine is full-bodied, youthful and complex, with a great core of fruit, bright acids, pinpoint bubbles, outstanding focus and balance and stunning length and grip on the finish. A superb 1995 Blanc de Blancs. 2008-2025+...94+" -John Gilman 06/08
