Champagne André Heucq Heritage Assemblage NV
Champagne André Heucq
40% Chardonnay, 30% Meunier and 30% Pinot Noir, based on a majority of 2012 with reserve wines to complement.
From Cuisles and Baslieux sous Chatillon.
The dosage is Extra Brut.
70% stainless steel and 30% oak with partial malo-lactic fermentation.
A beautifully crafted blended wine. 60 months on lees adds huge complexity, which is difficult to find at this price point. Pepper and herb overtones with candied fruit and minerals. A low dosage of 6g/L is in perfect balance, leaving the palate fresh and crisp. - Victor Pugatschew
