Charles Heidsieck Brut 2008
This marked a return to the “traditional” vintage, following the extremely exuberant Millésime 2006. Precipitation fostered grape development without penalising the accumulation of sugar. The sun’s return at harvest has helped Pinots offering strength and great structure. Chardonnays are precise with a freshness that suggests slow ageing.
Disgorged in February 2019 with a dosage of eight grams per litre, the Brut Millésimé 2008 unfolds in the glass with beautiful aromas of citrus oil, crisp green apple, linden, fresh walnuts and warm bread. On the palate, it is medium to full-bodied, taut and incisive, with a deep, layered core that integrates its racy spine of acidity, excellent concentration and a long, delicately nutty finish. Impeccably balanced, this is Heidsieck's best vintage bottling since the 1980s.
