CHARLES HEIDSIECK

Charles Heidsieck

The forerunner of today's champagne house was founded in 1785 by the German emigrant Florenz-Ludwig Heidsieck (1749-1828) in Reims and was so successful that he was able to present one of his champagnes to the then Queen Marie Antoinette.

In 1794 the company name was changed to "Heidsieck & Co." and various members of the Heidsieck family were involved in the company. At some point there was a dispute between the heirs, the company was split up and Charles Heidsieck, Heidsieck Monopole and Piper-Heidsieck were formed in 1851, but they continued to argue about the exclusive use of the name Heidsieck for a long time.

Charles Heidsieck had the North American market in his sights right from the start. He himself traveled overseas several times and presented his champagne at numerous events and receptions. These "advertising campaigns" ensured presence in American newspapers, which, due to his lavish lifestyle, gave him the nickname "Charlie our Champagne Man" or "Champagne Charlie". He invested in 2,000-year-old cellars in Reims from Roman times - so-called "Crayères" “, Today a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which he thought was particularly suitable for allowing his wines to mature over a very long period of time.

In the meantime, the dispute under the three houses has long been buried, especially since both Charles Heidsieck and Piper-Heidsieck now belong to the Rémy-Cointreau group and Heidsieck-Monopole belongs to the well-known Vranken empire. Despite their common roots, all three houses differ greatly in style and it is Charles Heidsieck in particular who enjoys a particularly high reputation among connoisseurs.

The current cellar master Cyril Brun, like his predecessors, was named "Best Sparkling Winemaker of the Year" at the International Wine Challenge Awards 2019. Hardly any other house is regularly showered with as many awards as Charles Heidsieck. Under Cyril Brun, the cru locations were reduced from 120 to the 60 best and the age of the Réserve wines increased from eight to an average of ten years. The style of the house is particularly characterized by the high proportion of reserve wines, which give the champagne its depth and expressiveness. The basic cuvée Brut Réserve already has a reserve wine content of up to 50 percent.

Facts: N.M., Reims, vineyards are situated in Vallée de la Marne & Aube, 65 ha., 2.000.000 Bottles
