Mission Briefing

Codename:

Dom Killer

Following extensive investigation into the world of Ultra Bubbles, we have a surprise Champagne operating at lower cost basis than the famous brand sleeper cells of the Champagne region. We have discovered the incredible Diamant Blanc from one of the great historical producers, Heidsieck & Co., dating back to 1785.

All the elegance at half the price, this spectacular Champagne is a reward that our operatives greatly enjoy. This sparkler combines the depth of flavor, richness of Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and yeasty flavors that only come from long cellar aging and delicate winemaking.

Awarded 92 Points from Wine Spectator, this wine show plenty of hazelnut, citrus and mineral notes, in this very tasty package. From the refined nose to the long finesse-filled finish, the Diamant Blanc is a memorable, bubbly experience to savor with friends.

With the year end holidays fast approaching, Champagne of this quality is great to have on hand for when the moment is right.

About the Winery

Heidsieck & Co. Monopole is one of the oldest Champagne firms in all of France’s Champagne region. The origins go back to the 18th century. Following in the footsteps of Florens-Louis Heidsieck, his nephew Henri-Louis Walbaum and brother-in-law Auguste Heidsieck created one of the most sought after Champagnes ever. In 1895, the firm already shipped over 1.5 million bottles worldwide. In 1818, Heidsieck was appointed suppliers of Champagne to the king of Prussia, emperor of Germany; in 1911, it was appointed suppliers of Champagne to the English court. In 1933, Heidsieck Champagne was featured at the Swedish court and at the table of Csar Nicolas II (the latter ordered over 400,000 bottles a year for his personal use).

Heidsieck’s Champagne is very Pinot Noir-centric, with the varietal making up close to 70% in each bottle. The rest is a blend of Pinot Meunier and Chardonnay.
