With the recent release of Charles Heidsieck Blanc de Blanc, we thought it was an opportune moment to look at the whole range. Charles is synonymous with quality in the Champagne world and always has been since it's inception in the mid 1800's. It was Charles himself, fondly renamed Champagne Charlie, that took Charles Heidsieck out to the world. He conquered America and became the darling of New York society. In a letter to his wife in 1860, he penned "there is a rumour about me an excitement as they say, that we will greatly benefit from". When he returned to Europe, he went on to charm both England and Belgium. The wine was always made with meticulous attention to detail and that continues to this day. It is known as "Typiquement Charles" and each Cellar Master declares having been inspired by the embodiment of Champagne Charlie.
