Hopefully, our 49er celebration Champange. Go 9ers. The Charles Heidsieck is a beautiful Champagne with great mouthfeel. Hard to beat at just under $50. Hope you have some nice bottles planned for your Super Bowl party. Cheers!

Charles "Champagne Charlie" Heidsieck was one of the first to recognize the importance of the U.S. as a Champagne market. A blend with 40% reserve wines, fruit and floral bouquet, with orange blossom & yeasty notes. Fine bubbles, nice mousse, showing quality. Outstanding rich flavors of apple, pear and biscuit, well balanced, good structure, creamy. Long finish ending with toasty nutty oak & mineral notes.

It’s a little birthday pre-celebration for the birthday girl before we head north tomorrow for a big Bordeaux tasting and dinner to celebrate. That’s her enjoying the afternoon sun in the D&S Lounge on her day off. Happy Birthday Sofia! Love you. As for the Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve, it never disappoints. The palate shows beautiful mousse, green & golden apple, pineapple juice, some pear, a touch of cider, lemon & lime zest, kiwi, green melon, notes of caramel, baguette crust, mixed greens, saline, sea fossils & spray, grainy, grey volcanic minerals, low intensity white spice, thick, powdery chalkiness, spring flowers, jasmine, soft, crisp acidity and a well balanced & polished finish. Photos of; the birthday queen on her throne, her birthday bouquet, long shot of our yard and a nice fall sunset with a glass of celebration nectar.

Just one of my favorites. Never disappoints and one of the best for the price.

It was 19 in TX Tues, hailed yesterday, and is 80 degrees today. Welcome to spring in TX. I love the info on the back of these bottles as they give detail to the base vintage and when they were disgorged. This is ‘08 base, disgorged 2017. Right up my alley. I’d call this oxidative, but not overly so. There is a Krug-ness about this style. It’s toasty and savory with a little caramel, toffee and baked apple. Creamy. For my personal taste, while I enjoy all champagne cold, this is one of the few styles that holds up well even once it warms up slightly as there isn’t a lot of tartness here.

BO'S tasting - 60% 07 vintage with 10 further back vintages in blend - no oak treatment - an opulent wine - probably the best NV on the market in Oz - "a clean Krug!"
