    March 18, 2020 - Light pale yellow in color with tiny beads. Expressive aromas of yellow citrus oils, toasted nuts, fresh baked bread and hint of truffles. Pinpoint acidity frames a gorgeous core of yellow-green apples, lemon zest, chalk, toast and a very long mineral laden finish. This 25 year old baby is just turning the corner.

    March 14, 2020 - Not much of a champagne drinker, but this was fantastic with sous vide salmon,watercress, pickled onions and spinach purée. Brioche, lemon and salt with a nice nutty note to it. This would bring a woman to ecstasy with oysters!

    March 8, 2020 - Charles Heidsieck BdM 1995.
    Gammel etikett.
    Oooh... dette er så vakkert fra første sniff!
    Rik og innbydende nese som oser flesk og frodighet.
    Pen modning i frukten med stor intensitet.
    Fantastisk leken mousse.
    Strålende moden frukt med stor konsentrasjon og balanserende friskhet.
    Breiskuldra som få, men holder seg fast i fisken - kraft og eleganse.
    Drikker helt topp nå, men tåler glatt flere år til.
    Holder trøkket hele veien.
    Finishen sitter en liten evighet med vakre modningstoner og mineralitet.
    Leverer som alltid! 94-95p

    (Charles Heidsieck Blanc De Millenaire) COLOR-golden; NOSE (w/ no decant)-a quick blast of marzipan; a cinnamon toast crunch cereal aspect; some dried fruits; PALATE (w/ no decant)-sliced fresh golden apples dominate; a chalk dust minerality; NOSE (w/ 60' decant)-much more aromatic; more caramel & brown sugar components; PALATE (w/ 60' decant)-the bubbles are considerably softer; substantially more rounded and integrated; baked apple pie w/ caramel and brown sugar; NOSE (w/ 90' decant)-even more pronounced, but the difference from no decant to 60 minute decant was more pronounced; PALATE (w/ 90' decant)-there are clearly still bubbles; apples and bread like before, but one thing I'm picking up for the first time is a substantial lemon peel component; WS-95; GV-No Score

    (Charles Heidsieck Champagne Blanc des Millénaires) Light yellow color; yeasty white flower, honeysuckle and peach nose; rich, big, very tart grapefruit and pear palate with good stuffing and zesty, refreshing acidity that gave it an edge over the '93 BdM in the same flight; medium finish 95+ pts.

    (Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires Brut) A lightly honeyed nose, with slightly high-toned aromas of polished wood, nutty complexity and mature, dried white fruits. A lovely palate follows, showing fresh character and a mature, elegant seam of richness. A lovely, clean and clearly defined style. A very vinous, appealing, wine which has developed nicely over recent years. Nudging excellence.

    (CHARLES HEIDSIECK BLANC DE MILLENAIRE) #3; VaynerPAZZZ; COLOR-beautiful golden; NOSE-tighter, little grapefruit, dried toast, little hazelnut; TASTE-nice sour pear coming through, but it completely disappears ("Caspar Syndrome"), a lack of finish, shocking for such a good producer; WS-95; GV-88

    (Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires Brut) A pale lemon hue, with notes of mineral honeycomb and smoky, honey-laden brioche on the nose. This is very nice indeed. Full, nutty, honeycomb character. Very open and forward, but with a good structure beneath. Firm acidity. A lovely style, with a lingering, golden nutty finish. Still a touch on the youthful side for me, although it has clearly developed a little since my last tasting, but clearly this had great quality.

    (Charles Heidsieck Champagne Blanc des Millénaires) Group's #4 (my #4) – 81 pts; 2, 3, 1, 0 – chalky, tangy, citrus nose, that becomes savory after 45 minutes in the glass; refreshing, with good acidity, structure and mineral edges; medium finish

    (Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millénaires Brut) An appealing, lemon-gold hue. Very open and expressive nose, showing honeycomb swirled with a mineral bite. Quite aggressive style at present, with very bright acidity and a firm mousse, but there is plenty of appeal here, and certainly there is potential. Definitely one for the cellar, and should improve over the next 5-8 years.
