The Blanc des Millénaires is Charles Heidsieck’s flagship cuvée. A blend of five of the most celebrated Champagne crus from the Côte des Blancs; Oger, Mesnil-sur-Oger, Avize, Cramant and Vertus, it is one of the best examples of vintage Blanc de Blancs from Champagne.
The Blanc des Millénaires 2006 has a deep golden hue with glints of light green. The nose has floral notes of violets and acacia and deeper notes of blood oranges, stonefruit, fig and date, complemented by subtle herbal notes of tobacco and eucalyptus. On the palate it displays the signature texture of Blanc des Millénaires, starting with a saline and chalky texture, moving into creamy notes of nougat, citrus and whipped cream, with a round and generous finish.
