2000 Charles Heidsieck Brut Champagne

SKU #1050805 94 points Wine Spectator

 A rich note of smoke heralds this toasty version, with truffle and roasted hazelnut aromatics accenting layered flavors of creamed apple, crystallized honey, lemon curd and crème de cassis. Vibrant, with a lovely, lacy texture and racy acidity that persists on the mouthwatering finish. Drink now through 2028. (AN)  (11/2013)

93 points Wine Enthusiast

 Showing surprising age for such a young vintage, this is a wine that’s ready. It is of course, like all Charles Heidsieck Champagnes, beautifully crafted, with its toast and spice element integrated deftly into the crisp fruits. A top quality Champagne, needing food for its full appreciation. (RV)  (12/2008)

91 points Wine & Spirits

 A zaftig 2000, this feels voluminous and heady with toasty scents and mature complexity. The golden color and creamy integration of the bubbles suggest enjoying it now, with foie gras.  (12/2013)

Jancis Robinson

 Not that much evidence of ageing. 17 crus, Ambonnay, Verzenay, Aÿ, Oger, Chardonnay from Cézanne. In the old bottle shape. 60% Pinot Noir, 40% Chardonnay. Tight textured. Some slight almondy notes. Very good now. But still quite brisk. 18/20 Points  (5/2014)

K&L Notes

This is a great bottle for folks who are looking for toasty Champagne--the 2000 Heidsieck is a giant loaf of brioche!

And while many of its Region, Bordeaux, Burgundy and Champagne most obviously, produce wine as rare, as sought-after and nearly as expensive as gold, there are just as many obscurities and values to be had from little known appellations throughout the country. To learn everything there is to know about French wine would take a lifetime. To understand and appreciate French wine, one only has to begin tasting them. Click for a list of bestselling items from all of France.


- The French region of Champagne (comprised of the towns of Rheims, Epernay, and Ay) was the first region in the world to make sparkling wine in any quantity. Today, the name of the region is synonymous with the finest of all sparkling wines, and winemaking traditions of Champagne have become role models for sparkling wine producers, worldwide. Surprisingly, the region of Champagne is now responsible for only one bottle in 12 of all sparkling wine produced. Styles of champagne range from the basic brut (often blends of several vintages), single vintage champagnes, and rose. View our bestselling Champagne.
