An exquisite rosé champagne, Charles Heidsieck's Rosé Réserve offers a complex bouquet of aromas and flavours. Enjoy subtle notes of wild strawberries and almond pastries, followed by warm notes of gingerbread and cinnamon. With coral-like hues and subtle orange reflections, the champagne's long and balanced finish completes the exquisite palate.
About the Producer
Charles Heidsieck is one of the most admired Champagne houses thanks to the unrivalled and consistently high quality of its wines. Founded in 1851 by the man who would become known as ‘Champagne Charlie’, this family-owned house is the smallest of the Grandes Marques. Their size, and commitment to excellence, has been underpinned by a winemaking team that between them have been named 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge 16 times.
Vineyard and Winery
Charles Heidsieck have built exceptional relationships with the most experienced growers in the entire Champagne region. For the Rosé, fruit comes from top villages, such as Les Riceys, Ambonnay and Ay.
After the first fermentation in stainless steel, each tank undergoes malolactic fermentation to soften the natural acidity and enrich the wine. Base wines, including 5-6% red wine from Les Riceys, are blended with 20% reserve wines before bottling. The cuvée is bottled and yeast added to begin the second fermentation, following which bottles are lowered into the chalk cellars. 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.
