This combination of multi-terroir fruit and distinctively different micro climates marries bright natural acidity with layered fresh flavors of green apple, tart kiwi, pear and melon.
Anthilia 2019 has a straw yellow color. The nose presents a fresh and fruity bouquet with notes of white-fleshed fruits (peach) combined with scents of wildflowers. On the palate we find the evident fruity note again, refreshed by agreeable sapidity. It finishes with good persistence.
Charles Heidsieck was one of the very first Champagne Houses to demonstrate its passion for Chardonnay by producing a Blanc de Blancs in its 1949 vintage. There is also evidence that the Maison had produced some mono-crus from the Côte des Blancs as early as1906... Through this cuvée, relaunched in 2018, two of the House’s areas of expertise come together: the production of great white wines and the art of blending a large selection of wines from different years and terroirs. The considerable challenge is to make opposites coexist: the tautness and the freshness of young chardonnays on the one hand, and the silky “Charles” character on the other.
The dress is light and crystalline, very pure with discreet green reflections. The rich and complex nose expressing the plurality of grape varieties. Exotic and citrus fruits blend with apricot and white peach with floral notes and white pepper.
