Based on the terrific Pinot Noir from the 2012 vintage, this is a top-dollar pink at a reasonable price. Fresh, intense and opulent, but also refined and of great class. All sorts of sensuous fruits, including black cherry, plum and even prunes, are checked by freshness and vigour. Dosage 11g/l. Disgorged in 2017. (ME)
The Charles Heidsieck “Rosé Réserve” non-vintage Brut is composed of the same blend of one-third each of chardonnay, pinot noir and pinot meunier, but with six percent of the pinot noir being still red wine from the fine village of Riceys in the Aube. The current release is from the base year of 2008 and was disgorged in 2015, after six years aging sur latte and finished with a dosage of eleven grams per liter. The wine delivers lovely aromatic complexity in its constellation of wild strawberries, tangerine, brioche, chalky soil tones, fresh almond and a touch of dried rose petals in the upper register. On the palate the wine is bright, full-bodied, focused and still quite youthfully racy, with a lovely core of fruit, superb mineral drive, elegant mousse and outstanding balance and grip on the long and racy finish. This seems far drier than its eleven grams of dosage might suggest, as this bottling has a superb chassis of 2008’s racy acidity. It is already very tasty, but it will age superbly well and I would bury it in the cellar for five or six years and really let it relax a bit structurally and start to sing unashamedly! (Drink between 2018-2045)
The Heidsieck toastiness on the nose takes center stage ahead of pink grapefruit and grilled peaches. The palate rolls into ripe red cherry flavors with smooth, nutty phenolics coating the finish. Terrific balance. Drink now,
Based on 2008 and 20% younger reserve wines (averaging five-years-old) the NV Rosé Reserve includes 5% red wine. Disgorged in early 2015, this cuvée shows a delicate bouquet that leads to a lovely, pure, elegant, intense and complex palate that is full of finesse and tension. The finish is long and salty, very clear and nicely dry. Great aging potential. (SR)
Lip-smacking acidity firms this sleek rosé Champagne, while flavors of toasted almond, white cherry, fleur de sel and citrus ride the fine mousse. Offers a delicate, smoke-tinged finish. Disgorged 2017. Drink now through 2021. (AN)
Light, bright orange. Intensely perfumed scents of raspberry, orange zest, white flowers and chalky minerals. Juicy and precise in the mouth, offering vibrant red berry and blood orange flavors and a complicating hint of brioche. The floral quality comes back strong on the very long, incisive finish, which features a subtle anise quality and smoky minerality. About 20% of the Pinot Noir here was in the form of still red wine.

This dry, orange-pink wine is crisp and delicately fruity, but with a tangy, almost tannin texture that gives a definite bite. The bottling (disgorged in 2015) is still young and dominated by the tight acidity. (RV)
Appreciably different flavour profile to their Brut Réserve, with proper red-fruit flavours and impressive autolysis. Delicious, although the premium on price makes the Brut Réserve look a much better buy at £15 less. 17/20 points. (RH)
Creamy and rich, this is a fully mature blend with savory mushroom notes to the fruit. The weight of the wine is augmented by white pepper spice and smokiness. A substantial wine for roast game birds.
