2006 Charles Heidsieck, Blanc des Millénaires 6x75cl*
France / Reims
FOOD MATCHING NOTE:
The richness and depth of this champagne make it excellent with fuller seafood dishes like lobster, but it is also an excellent aperitif.
On the nose, the Blanc des Millénaires 2004 opens with elegant notes of lemon, apple blossoms, salted butter and almonds along with a toasted, buttery nuance of crème anglaise. The palate is full of fresh citrus flavours giving the wine a taut crispness. Still youthful and taut with an elegant mousse.
