The South Australian launch of Charles Heidsieck’s Millésimé 2008 and Millésimé 2012.
Few champagne houses have reached the fevered cult status enjoyed by Charles Heidsieck. Their trademark textured and complex style represents elegance and indulgence – the connoisseur’s choice.
We have the exclusive privilege of showcasing Charles Heidsieck's two new releases – the opulent 2012 vintage and the lauded 2008. Charles Heidsieck is one of the very last champagne houses to release a cuvée from 2008 after ten years aging on lees.
