This year the Maison Charles Heidsieck is renewing with tradition and producing a very small number of red Coteaux Champenois.

Cyril Brun, Cellar Master, shares his very favourite with this extremely limited selection.

Producing Coteaux wines means giving life to some of his "coups de coeur".

To taste them is to dive into the fascinating world of the art of blending in Champagne.

COTEAU CHAMPENOIS rouge ambonnay

a red in all its glory


The “Les champsots” plot lies in the heart of the Ambonnay terroir, a Grand Cru located on the southern side of the Montagne de Reims.
The vineyard corresponds naturally to the production of red wines and Cyril therefore wanted to exploit its full potential.

blend :

100% Pinot Noir

ageing :

Wines from 2019, aged one year in old oak barrels.

the wine :

The robe is a brilliant ruby red.

The powerful initial nose offers notes of black fruits (black currants, blackberries, black cherries), giving way to floral and spiced aromas (violets, ginger, liquorice, pepper, cinnamon). When swirled in the glass, smoky, even peaty, aromas appear.

The generous palate is tannic and supple with a silky finish of salted caramel.

cellaring :

To be enjoyed immediately and until 2030.
