Charles Heidsieck 'La Collection Crayeres' 1983 in Gift Box
Paying homage to his historic cellars, Charles Heidsieck unveils its greatest treasure to œnophiles through a Collection called “Crayères”. Just like an old tome where every page recounts dazzling quests, an œnothèque of staggering vintages is to be revealed in a first edition of five incredible cuvées.
Time, like a “fourth varietal”, has crafted the soul of the wines in the Crayères Collection. Extended ageing on lees has unlocked the full potential of their aromas. Each vintage has its own signature, its own generous tone. Rooted in the highest standards and precise construction, all promise to deliver a harmonious combination of flavors.
Selectively released, whosoever is lucky enough to enjoy these precious jewels can boast of experiencing the dream of traveling through time.
On the eye: A shade of antique gold with amber reflections.
On the nose: Complex aromas, ranging from Virginia tobacco, leather and cocoa to the intensity of forest undergrowth, with occasional notes of light spices.
On the palate: A robust wine, perfectly mature with a flourish structured around the warmth and texture of velvet. Notes of dried fruits and candied ginger round off the overall complexity.
