Charles Heidsieck 1995 Brut (Champagne)

A very nice wine, fairly full in the mouth, but a little standoffish and closed at this age. Wide minerally aromas are all that showed on the nose, even after an hour of aeration. The butterscotch richness that seems to be Heidsieck's trademark is present here, too, with white peach flavors hiding underneath. Needs 8–10 years at the least; in the next decade, this evaluation may prove conservative. A blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay; only the second vintaged wine of the 1990s.
