1985 Charles Heidsieck Champagne Charlie
Is the '85 Charlie still showing well?
My last few bottles had begun to reflect better days prior so I tended to drink them up last year. Curious to hear how yours showed. Maybe it was the batch I had.
I will not speak for W+A but I thought the Charlie was excellent and definitely not past its peak. It really opened up as the night progressed and the acidity kept it so fresh for me. I actually thought this bottle tasted young.
