Description

The 2008 rosé will always hold a special place in the Charles Heidsieck range of vintage rosés, with exceptional longevity taking it to culmination in the second half of the 21st century.

This vintage will blithely withstand the test of time with exhilarating freshness.

Comprising 11 meticulously selected Grands and Premiers Crus, the Rosé Millésimé 2008 presents a blend of 63% Pinot Noir - including 9% red wines - and 37% Chardonnay. The dosage, significantly lower than in previous vintages, is designed to set off the wine’s tart, a thirst-quenching character in its early youthful freshness.

Review

An amazing 2008 Rosé Champagne that has all the structure and aromatic complexity - sushi ginger, oolong tea, and caramelized mandarin orange - we associate with this vintage, but also has more charm than most. On the palate, this has stunning concentration, yet is diamond bright. The interplay of creaminess, fine tannins, and mineral acidity builds and builds at a breathtaking finish. The colour comes from about 7% pinot noir red wine, partly from the little-known Les Riceys in the far south of Champagne.

Tasting Profile

Nose
The nose is saline and mineral underlined by a hint of toast and smoke. Notes of citrus, pink grapefruit, blood orange, and the red current gradually follow. A discreet fruitiness with more intense notes will be unveiled with time. Morello cherries, licorice, and black tea.
Palate
The exuberant mouthfeel is cubic with the typical vivacity of the vintage. The finish is long and creamy, with extremely delicate effervescence at the very end. it is paradoxical to find a wine of such freshness paired with a structure of such restrained power.
