Prestige has a name: Charles Heidsieck
An exceptional rosé in a legendary vintage.
Having matured for twelve years in two-thousand-year-old chalk cellars, this champagne expresses the full generosity of 1999 in the true Charles Heidsieck style. The delicate effervescence reveals the aromatic complexity of this blended rosé. Its harmony and depth have made it one of the most awarded Rosé vintages in the world.

"Bright pink with an orange tinge Red berries, pear, rose and jasmine on the nose, with notes of toasty lees and orange zest adding nuance. Fleshy but focused and dry, offering broad orchard fruit flavors and deeper hints of cherry pit and smoky minerals. Becomes firmer with air, picking up a note of dried rose and finishing with very good clarity and smoky persistence. This is showing well now but its freshness suggests it will reward five years or so of patience."
Wine Spectator (WS): 94
"Elegant, offering fine integration between a core of oyster shell-tinged minerality and appealing ripe black cherry, strawberry shortcake and toasted hazelnut notes. Shows refined texture and finely honed acidity."
