Blanc des Millénaires is Charles Heidsieck's flagship champagne: a truly great cuvée. Its nose offers aromas of dried fruit, candied fruits and almonds and hazelnuts; notes of nougat and beeswax are also present. The palate is creamy and smooth, also offering aromas of almond and vanilla.
This famous champagne house bears the name of its founder, Charles Camille Heidsieck, the nephew of the founder of Piper Heidsieck, the sister enterprise founded in 1785 in Reims, who helped to popularise the image of champagne worldwide. After working in the family business (Piper Heidsieck), Charles Heidsieck founded his own domain in 1851. Going to the United States, he eventually sold over 300,000 bottles in the midst of the American Civil War. Accused of espionage by General Butler, he even spent time in prison. Owned by the Rémy Martin group since 2011 (Descours family), Charles Heidsieck produces a vintage cuvée of great finesse, sought after by many wine lovers. The domain 's style is accentuated, with ample, vinous wines and often offering toasted notes.
