Charles Heidsieck Blanc des Millenaires 2006
Blanc des Millénaires was first produced in 1983 and was released 10 years later in 1993. Since then, there have only been four vintages. 1985, 1990, 1995 and 2004. The newest release from 2006 is, once again, a masterpiece in Chardonnay. The nose is wonderfully complex, exuding elegant notes of lemon, salted butter, almonds and apple blossom. The palate is taut and precise yet dynamic and intense, concluding with a long, sumptuous finish. Though excellent to drink already, this has a long and distinguished life ahead of it.
