Description

Champagne Charles Heidsieck
La Collection Crayères Millésime 1982

The Collection Crayères Editon 2022 by Charles Heidsieck includes exclusive bottles, offered in limited quantities, that come from the Private Collection of the Maison. The 2022 edition offers a series of vintage Champagnes,  aged on their yeasts for many years in the Maison's chalk cellars to promote the harmonious development of aromas and taste. These Champagnes are the brilliant demonstration of Charles Heidsieck's know-how, since only a skilful assembly and processing of exceptional quality can pass the test of time.

The results of the 1982 harvest are considered amongst the most exceptional ever witnessed in the history of Champagne. The grapes grew under steady weather conditions. The results were irreproachable and the harvest abundant! The grapes, all varieties included, were in excellent condition and stood out for their finesse, equilibrium and grandeur, hallmarks of a great year in Champagne.

The Collection Crayères Millésime 1982 has a captivating and intense taste with persuasive hints of honey tempered by subtle notes of orange peel leading to an acidic finish. The decisive aftertaste is a perfect balance of freshness, delicacy, vivacity and refinement.

The Collection Crayères Millésime 1982 is a very limited edition available in an individual wooden box (360 pieces in 75 cl format and 120 pieces in Magnum format) and represents a perfect opportunity to purchase and enjoy these 'rare' champagnes aged in their best conditions.

Champagne Charles Heidsieck

The youngest maison, born from Florens-Louis Heidsieck (founded in 1851), is probably one of the most famouse one. This is due to its founder Charles-Camille Heidsieck, who understand the potential of the American market and started exporting big quantities. When the American Civil War broke out, he went to the United States to get his credits back and he was involved in many adventures, such a imprisonment in New Orleans accused of spionage. The Americans called him Champagne Charlie, which today is also the title of his biography and the 1989 movie starring Hugh Grant, about his life. Today Charles-Heidsieck is part of the same group as his cousin Piper-Heidsieck: they have a Chef de Cave (Régis Camus) in common, but not the style. The Champagne Charles Heidsieck are structured and long refined wines, while Piper-Heidsieck prefers freshness and drinking experiences.
