Description

In the early 1980s, the Charles Heidsieck Cellar Master decided to reserve the very best Chardonnays for a cuvée named Blanc des Millénaires. Across thirty years, only six Blanc des Millénaires have ever been produced; 1983, 1985, 1990, 1995, 2004, and now, 2006. The House’s exacting requirements for quality and ageing potential show how exceptional the Chardonnays from these harvests were.
