Description

Charles Heidsieck Brut Millesime

Charles Heidsieck Brut Millesime is golden in appearance, on the nose the aromas are autumnal and warm with notes of praline and lightly toasted hazelnuts. The palate is rich, as would be expected from a warm and generous vintage, with intense notes of dried apricots, dates and figs. Full bodied and layered, and lasting on the finish.

Charles Heidsieck is one of the most admired Champagne houses thanks to the unrivalled and consistently high quality of its wines. The current range is one of the most awarded collections of wines in the world. The intricacies of the champagnes’ complex make-up have been perfected over the years by one of the most celebrated winemaking teams in Champagne – between three winemakers they have been awarded ‘Sparkling Winemaker of the Year’ at the International Wine Challenge fifteen times. This winemaking legacy, paired with the house’s flamboyant history since its foundation in 1851 by the man who would become known as ‘Champagne Charlie’, makes it a unique offering from Champagne: a house with great, hand-crafted wines, heritage and proven quality.

This millésime was composed of 11 crus, including the vineyards that form the corner stones of the house style – Oger, Avize, Vertus and Cramant for Chardonnay, and Pinot Noir from Mailly and Ambonnay.

Some people will not hesitate to compare the 2012 vintage to spectacular years like 1990 or 1996, and yet the success of the resulting wines might be considered something of a miracle given the challenges of the year. Nature had them fearing the worst when it unleashed a range of climate catastrophes on their vineyards. Spring brought violent attacks of mildew, torrential rains, hailstorms, cold snaps during flowering, followed by heat and water stress that drove yields down by 30%. But a beautiful, sunny summer enabled slow maturing and good concentration in the grapes, resulting in a late harvest. Grapes proved to be of excellent quality: rich in sugar and with good acidity.

Spagnol Prosecco DOC Treviso Extra Dry 2017

Classic straw yellow colour. Fine, persistent and delicate bubbles. The bouquet has perfumes and aromas ranging from fruit (pear, apple) to flowers (acacia, elderflower). The sugars in the wine are perfectly balanced with clean acidity and a typical minerality that comes from the fact that the grapes are grown in some of the region's best vineyards. This all gives the impression of a drier wine, but incredibly smooth and well balanced on the palate. From Spagnols family vineyards, low sulphite and suitable for vegans, an excellent value for money. A real artisan Prosecco, for a real Prosecco lover!

Ayala Brut Majeur

Pale gold in colour with a fine mousse, the wine is aromatic on the nose. On the palate, it is well balanced and shows great finesse and complexity. It is the Pinot Noir that gives the wine richness and a long finish while the Chardonnay, from the finest soils of the Cote des Blancs, adds delicacy, liveliness and freshness. Pinot Meunier, mainly from the Marne Valley, gives the wine an appealing fruitiness and roundness.

Bastia Vino Frizzante Colfondo Capo degli Onesti 2019

Straw yellow in colour with the delicate delicate perlage typical of Frizzante wines. This wine is a jump into the history of Prosecco, when locals used to call it in the local dialect "el vin col fondo” - "the wine with sediment". This is in fact a traditional Colfondo Frizzante wine, with in-bottle fermentation and storage on the yeast lees. Without filtering or clarification, this wine takes on unique and unmistakable features, and its complexity is overwhelming and fascinating. If shaken, it can be quite hazy and cloudy; the smell is characterised by yeasty notes, crust of bread and yellow ripe fruit; the taste is bone-dry and pleasantly sapid. Bastia winery is located in the heart of Valdobbiadene Prosecco DOCG appellation. With the "Capo degli Onesti" they wanted to celebrate Prosecco, its history and tradition; for this reason they decided to label this wine as "Vino Frizzante Bianco", just like their grandparents used to do years and years ago.

Low Sugar Prosecco Col del Sas DOCG Brut 2016

Straw yellow colour with greenish highlights. The nose senses floral notes with pleasant hints of bread crust. Pleasant and elegant to the palate. With 8 grams of sugar per litre only (half the amount of sugar as a standard Extra Dry Prosecco), this is the driest Prosecco within the Col del Sas range. An artisan low sugar Prosecco that keeps all the pleasant roundness, smooth finish and likability of Prosecco in less than 64 calories per glass... just perfect! The grapes used to make this Valdobbiadene DOCG Prosecco Superiore come from some of the most prestigious vineyards in this appellation. PROSECCO BUYING GUIDE This is a: Brut Prosecco (less than 12 g/l of sugar) The most modern type of Prosecco. Fresh, mineral and extremely elegant taste. Best served at 8-10⁰C, it works perfectly as an accompaniment to seafood and vegetable-based dishes. Other styles: Extra Dry Prosecco (12-17 g/l of sugar) The most traditional type of Prosecco. The mellow yet crisp taste is a result of its very well-balanced acidity. It is best served at 7-9⁰C and makes an excellent aperitif. Dry Prosecco (17-32 g/l of sugar) The less common type of Prosecco. The natural sweetness highlights the wine’s fruitiness and creates a refreshingly tangy yet soft flavour. Best served at 7-9⁰C, try it with dry pastries and spicy dishes.
