1995 Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Millenaires
FRANCE Heavenly stuff. For a Champagne gift that tastes as sensational as it sounds (this is 23 years old, remember) this heady, mind-blowing prestige cuvee from a bizarrely underrated house is a win-win choice. Pure chardonnay with sublime waxy tension, roasted nuts and buttered pastry richness yet with a continuous freshness that defies its age, it just melts in the mouth.
