Charles Heidsieck Brut Reserve N.V.
An extremely enticing nose of brioche and toasted chestnuts gives way to much more indulgent, opulent notes of peaches, cream and dried fruits. If the nose was enticing, the palate is positively hypnotic with fresh white fruits, praline and vanilla. There is a huge amount of complexity here (presumably from the high proportion of reserve wines) and the finish is long and mouth-watering. In a word, delightful.
