Charles Heidsieck, free to establish an enterprise and make a name for himself.
At just 29 years of age, Charles-Camille Heidsieck decided to create his eponymous House in 1851. Despite being a heir – the Heidsiecks were one of the most respected families in the Champagne world – he decided to forge his own path and establish his own dynasty, eager to embark on his own entrepreneurial journey.
THREE FOUNDING CRUS , ESSENTIAL TO THE CHARLES SIGNATURE
Of the sixty Champagne crus chosen to produce this emblematic cuvée, three are pillars of the Brut Réserve style:
Oger : (Grand Cru Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs) gives it its fleshy and generous notes.
Ambonnay : (Grand Cru Pinot Noir from the Montagne de Reims) is synonymous with power, structure and fruity notes.
Verneuil : (Meunier from the Vallée de la Marne) ensures its balance and smooth texture.
40% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay and 20% Meunier.
Cru by cru, varietal by varietal, in stainless steel vats. 5 to 10% of wine vinified in old Burgundy oak barrels.
