Charles Heidsieck releases limited edition Blanc des Millenaires cases


Champagne Charles Heidsieck is releasing a limited edition set of mixed cases of its Blanc des Millenaires this November, featuring every vintage ever made.

Each of the 150 cases contains a bottle each of the 1983, 1985, 1990, 1995 and 2004 vintages of the renowned blanc de blancs. Known as the ‘Collection Crayeres’, the cases will be sold for £2,750-£2,980 each.

The famed blanc de blancs is made from Chardonnay sourced from the grands crus of Cramant, Avize, Oger, Le Mesnil-Sur-Oger and Vertus.

Stephen Leroux, Charles Heidsieck’s executive director, said: “Releasing these treasures from our cellars is an extraordinary thing to do. The Collection Crayeres is an exercise in balance – to enable wine lovers to obtain such rare bottles while ensuring stock remains available for future generations.”
