I'm a huge fan of Champagne (who isn't?) and whilst spending a week studying in Champagne a couple of years ago, I fell in love with the wines of Charles Heidsieck.
Before I first tried Charles Heidsieck, I was not quite as familiar with the brand as I was with some of the other Grande Marque houses. It took actually having lunch at the place to realise how fantastic their wines are to drink; it's not only a beautiful bottle! I urge you to try the Brut NV, which despite being relatively premium in price, is among the best Brut NV Champagnes that I have tasted and I feel totally warrants the cost. It is unique and beautifully presented, with a fantastically put-together palate and bags of finesse. Fresh, full-flavoured and with a hint of toast; delicious.
