The Forgotten Vintage of Champagne
The 1995 vintage for Champagne is somewhat the forgotten vintage of the region. However, 1995 was a great year for Champagne especially for Chardonnay based wines of the Cotes des Blancs. The reason 1995 is so forgotten is that fact that the landmark 1996 vintage stole all the lime light. That has left some great 1995 Champagne still available and today we are able to offer the 1995 Blanc des Millenaires Blanc des Blancs from Charles Heidsieck.
As we said the 1995 vintage is great for Blanc des Blancs with Wine Spectator awarding the vintage overall all this magnificent 94 point score and right up and the Wine Advocate giving he vintage an overall 95 point score. Making the 1995 vintage just two points less overall than the 1996 vintage from both publications.
The 1995 Blanc des Millenaires is a great example of the vintage and one of the few wines still available that is selling for less than $200 per bottle. This past November the Wine Spectator re-reviewed the 1995 Blanc des Millenaires and upgraded the wine to 96 points as well as the Wine Advocate that also upgraded this to 94 points.
