Antonio Galloni

95 Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "The 1995 Brut Blanc des Millenaires shows just how compelling this often overlooked vintage can be. Layers of lemon, pastry spices, crushed rocks and savory herbs literally jump from the glass in this exquisite, perfumed, beautifully delineated Champagne. The 1995 shows lovely flavor complexity and nuance from its extended time in bottle, yet it also retains plenty of freshness, verve and acidity. This is a great showing from Charles Heidsieck. The 1995 was made before the tenure of the house's current team, headed by CEO Cécile Bonnefond. It will be very interesting to see what develops at this historic property over the coming years."

Wine Spectator

95 Points, Wine Spectator: "A mouthwatering Champagne, refined and satiny in texture, with a citrusy overtone to the flavors of apricot preserves, toasted hazelnut and brioche, crystallized honey and fleur de sel. Presents a lasting, smoke- and spice-filled finish. Drink now through 2025. 167 cases imported."

John Gilman

"94+ Points, John Gilman: ""The Charles Heidsieck Champagne house follows a rather iconoclastic path with its top bottlings, as it offers up two distinct Tête de Cuvées, the Blanc de Millenaires and the Champagne Charlie bottlings. The Blanc de Millenaires is only offered on anoccasional basis, with previous releases only having been made in the vintages of 1983, 1985 and 1990. Each vintage is aged a minimum of ten years on the lees prior to disgorgement, with the chardonnay fruit for this bottling hailing from the famed Côte desBlancs villages of Avize, Cramant, Oger and Vertus. The 1995 is stunning, as it soars from the glass in a profound and youthful blend of delicious apples, pears, fresh-baked bread, a lovely base of limestone, floral tones and stylish topnote of fresh nutmeg. On thepalate the wine is full-bodied, youthful and complex, with a great core of fruit, bright acids, pinpoint bubbles, outstanding focus and balance and stunning length and grip on the finish. A superb 1995 Blanc de Blancs. 2008-2025+"" 06/08"
