1995 Charles Hei­d­sieck Blanc de Mil­lenaires

Halliday - - Global Notes -

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.
