Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve NV

Charles Heidsieck Brut Réserve NV: Very light yellow, twitch of gold color; yeast, bread, nectarine on the nose; ripe fruits, nectarine, plum, ginger, honey, lilt of lemon on the palate;

deliciously wonderful and tasty palate pleaser. Heidsieck pays real attention to aging wine in its chalk cellars before finishing, and even this “entry-level” bottling reflects their impressive attention to excellence. This is wonderfully smooth and generous with substance and harmony; 34% pinot noir, 33% chardonnay, 33% pinot meunier, a classic Champagne formula. Rich, opulent flavors; fine-grained texture, excellent acidity. If you want to experience the difference between Champagne and sparkling wine, Charles Heidsieck, one of Champagne’s historic houses, is a spot-on place to start. Remarkably generous and delicious. $45
