7th edition OF A LEGENDARY CUVÉE

Since then, seven cuvées have seen the light of day: 1983, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2004, 2006 and 2007.

2007 was an unusual vintage, so befitting of Chardonnay, that it has a wonderful future ahead of it: Charles Heidsieck has chosen it as the seventh cuvée of Blanc des Millénaires and it is polar opposite from its predecessor of 2006.

Because if every cuvée is the exclusive product of great Chardonnays from...

Vintage 2007

An unusually warm spring led to early flowering and initial optimism, which soon gave way to disappointment following one of the murkiest summers on record. Overall, 2007 was a difficult vintage saved by last-minute sunshine in late-August. Mildew and rot were the main culprits of the harvest, and the level of gluconic acid rocketed. The harvest began early, on August 24th, and was abundant in volume averaging 14,242 kg/ha. Pinot Meunier posed...

Written Notes

Charles Heidsieck has also released the latest vintage of its Blanc des Millénaires, the 2007 (AUD$400). Not 40,000 cases unfortunately, but around 8,000. The first release of this wine was the 1983, followed by 1985, 1990, 1995, 2004, 2006, and now the ’07. For me, this is the house’s best since that amazing 1995.

Two thousand seven might be a vintage that gets very little love, but do not neglect the Chardonnay-based wines. They are a bit special. As usual, this wine came from five villages in the Côte des Blancs. We have covered all this with past vintages so I won’t drag you through it all again, but they are Avize, Cramant, Oger, Le Mesnil, and Vertus – around an even split from each. More than 12 years on lees and a dosage of 7.3 grams/liter.

This wine is exquisite and beguiling, a glorious 2007. Lemongrass notes with ginger, citrus and fresh florals, jasmine, and lemon zest. A line of chalky salinity, a hint of green apple and the touch of honey on the finish. Good, bright acidity, knife-edge balance, and immense length. The previous release, 2006, was an excellent wine but riper and more powerful. This has class and finesse. Superb persistence with those notes of lemon, ginger, and florals all lingering. Twenty years ahead of it. 98.
