First official release of Blanc des Millénaires 1996 from Charles Heidsieck!

Blanc des Millénaires 1996 is the epitome of patience, reflecting years of careful craftsmanship and dedication.

Experiencing the Charles Heidsieck Crayères Collection is like traveling back in time through legendary wines. Only 4,000 bottles of this vintage remain today. They are aged for several decades in the silence of the house's deep historic cellars: the thousand-year-old Crayères from which this cuvée takes its name.

Vintage 1996
The vintage was characterized by almost ideal weather conditions throughout the growing season, with optimal sunshine and moderate temperatures throughout the summer. The harvest was characterized by optimal ripeness, intense freshness and flavor concentration. 1996 is unanimously recognized as one of the greatest vintages in Champagne. After nearly a quarter of a century of maturation, Blanc des Millénaires 1996 finally reveals its greatness.

19+/20 Nick Baker

"With such long reading time the fruit profile has transitioned to dried fruits like mandarin, grapefruit, lemon and then behind you see more savory charm like saffron, butter, along with hints of smoke and black tea. Five minutes later you see lots of aromatics like walking through a scented rose garden and hints of Turkish delight. The palate as expected is fresh, with great length and soft textured from the long lees time. A fascinating glimpse into Daniel Thibault's experimental vintage and this is well worth the wait. Perfect now and enjoy for 5+ years.” thefinestbubble.com, Christmas 2024
