Between 1825 and 1830, a cargo galley sank with more than 150 bottles of champagne from different brands on board, including Heidsieck & Co Monopole. In November 2010, oenologists who examined the cargo reported that the bottles included the oldest known vintages of the Heidsieck & Co Monopole brand.
Pale Yellow in colour. Fruit, primarily yellow fruits, and particularly peach, predominate at the initial tasting. However, there are also aromas of stewed fruits, with a hint of honey. Not to mention floral notes with white flowers offering a foretaste of the lightness of the wine. These are clearly generous and persistent aromas and promise a highly aromatic vintage.
Its primary aromas are of fruit, not just fresh fruit, but also candied fruits. The promise of the aromas in the nose is more than delivered by a round mouth, a subtle attack and good length
The mouth, like the nose, is dominated by fruit – peaches, cherry plums, and then oranges.Freshness, elegance and delicacy emerge gently throughout the entire tasting.It is very pleasant on the palate.
