Description

Champagne Charles Heidsieck
Ambonnay Rouge 2019

The Côteaux Champenois Ambonnay Rouge by Charles-Heidsieck is a red wine made from 100% Pinot Noir from the 2019 vintage harvested in the plot "Les Champsots" , (lieu-dit) located in the heart of the Ambonnay terroir, a Grand Cru on the southern slope of the Montagne de Reims. This vineyard has been carefully selected by the Maison to exploit its full potential for the production of red wines. Ambonnay was historically one of the few villages in the Champagne region to be famous for its still wines before the 'method champenoise' took over.

Vinification with ageing in old oak barrels for about 12 months before bottling.

The Côteaux Champenois Ambonnay Rouge by Charles Heidsieck has a brilliant ruby red colour. To the nose it is initially powerful and offers notes of black fruits (currants, blackberries, black cherries), giving way to floral and spicy aromas (violets, ginger, liquorice, pepper, cinnamon). When swirling in the glass, smoky, even peaty aromas appear. To the palate it is generous, tannic and soft, with a silky salted caramel finish.

Winery

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.
