CHARLES HEIDSIECK Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Blanc des Millénaires 1995
95 points, $95
Classy and graceful. Glides across the palate with its fine mousse, creamy texture and tightly knit flavors of coffee, candied berry, honey and hazelnut. Harmonious, lingering with a long, butterscotch aftertaste. Drink now through 2018. 5,000 cases made. —Bruce Sanderson

TAITTINGER Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne Comtes de Champagne 1996
