The Brut Reserve expresses the very quintessence of the Charles Heidsieck style. Easily recognizable, this wine is the fruit of a unique blend that can be summarized in one equation: 60/40/10.

60: the number of hand-selected crus for a blend that is precise, crisp and tailor-made. Wines produced in the harvest year, a third for each variety (Meunier, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir), are vinified cru by cru, variety by variety, in stainless steel vats.

40: a high proportion of 40% reserve wines, equally divided between Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, ensure the fine complexity and voluptuousness of the Brut R�serve.

10: the reserve wines average age, extraordinary for Champagne. Sourced from the best crus produced in the greatest years, the wines placed in reserve are kept for between 5 and 15 years in stainless steel tanks if not more. This maturing time is essential for their refinement and for the development of their aromatic range.

Charles Heidsieck is one of the great names of Champagne, and produces some of the finest of all Champagnes. Founded in 1851 by Charles-Camille Heidsieck, the original 'Champagne Charlie', the foundation of its modern fame rests on the unrivalled quality of its wines, which receive countless awards and accolades year after year. This success is attributable to the strength and depth of their winemaking team over the past three decades: Daniel Thibault, Regis Camus and Thierry Roset have between them been awarded 'Sparkling Winemaker of the Year' at the International Wine Challenge fifteen times.

No other house has won more than twice. This winning philosophy has been inherited by the new Chef de Cave, Cyril Brun, who took over in 2015 following Thierry Roset's untimely death in October 2014. In a world of large houses and luxury brands, it is reassuring that Charles Heidsieck, the smallest of all the grandes marques, is once again family owned and striving to build upon its already fabled reputation.
