Charles Heidsieck

2012 is an amazing vintage!
2012 Charles Heidsieck Champagne Vintage Brut...$112.99

2012, a vintage, an evidence, a "classic" for Charles.
Disgorged in 2019 with eight grams per liter dosage, the 2012 Brut Millésimé offers up aromas of crisp orchard fruit, white flowers and clear honey, complemented by hints of toasted bread, citrus zest and linden. Medium to full-bodied, elegantly fleshy and nicely concentrated, with lively acids and a pinpoint mousse, it's more generous and demonstrative than the 2008, but it will nonetheless reward a bit of bottle age.
Rated 94/100 The Wine Advocate
Rated 95/100 James Suckling
