Champagne Heucq Cuvée Antique 2005 | Britt’s Wine of the Month

As soon as you put your nose in the glass you realize that this is not just any Champagne. The nose is delightfully complex. There are hints of toasted bread and ripe apples. The flavour is rich, deep and dense with ripe fruit and a certain softness. But the acidity and the freshness are there too. A delicious Champagne. I drank it as aperitif but it should be perfect also with food.

André Heucq manages the estate of six hectares, located in the Vallée de la Marne. The main focus of the Heucq family, besides making high quality Champagne, is to work as sustainable as possible, in the cellar and in the vineyard. Cuvée Antique is aged six years on the lees and the grapes are 50% Chardonnay, 30% Pinot Noir and 20% Pinot Meunier. champagne-heucq.com
