From the first sip, the Charles Heidsieck Brut Vintage 2006 magnum with wooden case is surprising. It unfolds with more lightness and freshness than its predecessor, the Brut Vintage 2005. A distinct aromatic profile reaffirming the very vocation of a vintage, an expression of a particular year. The fruit of a year of beautiful acidity, this vintage has excellent ageing potential. It is a classic beauty, to which more than ten years of maturation in thousand-year-old chalk pits have allowed it to reveal itself fully and to place itself among the greatest Champagnes.
The Magnum format is a large 1.5 litres bottle, which represents 2 bottles of champagne or 12 glasses. This large format, presented in a wooden case, is ideal for your receptions, dinners, special occasions and gifts.
The colour is a beautiful deep gold with a remarkable brilliance underlined by a subtle and dynamic effervescence.
The first nose is generous: floral tones at first with touches of jasmine and honeysuckle. Then the fruity cornucopia comes to life: white peach, fresh apricot, mirabelle plum, pomelo and yuzu play elbows on the aromatic balcony. With swirling, subtle notes of bergamot, toasted hazelnut, liquorice and shredded coconut add complexity to this beautiful bouquet.
Beautiful balance between the saline, mineral character and the silky texture evoking nougat and butter cream. The touch of bubbles is all in delicacy, in suavity. This champagne is full of generous flavours and is enthusiastic about its accomplishment and richness in the mouth. Its incredible aromatic breadth makes it an unrepentant delight for our senses.
