Heidsieck & Co Monoploe Champagne Brut


We are always looking for a great bottle of Champagne and we found one at Marche Bacchus. We stopped to enjoy their new Sunday brunch and to welcome Nathan back from serving our country in Irag. We were looking for something special and decided on the Heidesieck & Co Champagne Brut. Owner Jeff Wyatt saw me pick out the bottle and said " that is a great choice. It was in the Top 100 "
This Champagne is a Blend of 70 % Pinot Noir 20 % Chardonnay10 % Pinot Meunier. In the glass the appearance was light yellow color, with green highlights. On the nose it appeared slightly woody and spicy. The palate was very fruit forward and well-structured.
The origins of Heidsieck & Co Monopole go back to the 18th century. Following in the footsteps of Florens-Louis Heidsieck, his nephew Henri-Louis Walbaum and brother-in-law Auguste Heidsieck created one of the most sought after champagnes ever. In 1895, the firm already shipped over 1,5 million bottles worldwide.In 1818, Heidsieck & Co Monopole was appointed suppliers of champagne to the king of Prussia, emperor of Germany; in 1911, it was appointed suppliers of champagne to the English court.In 1933, Heidsieck & Co Monopole champagnes features at the Swedish court and at the table of Csar Nicolas II (the latter ordered over 400 000 bottles a year for his personal use).
Jeff was right about this Champagne. We look froward to having this one again and again
