Christie's to Auction `Champagne Charlie' Vintages from Charles Heidsieck Cellars

October 14, 2017

Christie's International Plc is planning to auction a range of historic bottles from the cellars of Charles Heidsieck in December, an unusual sale that will include wines from all five of the "Champagne Charlie" special cuvee vintages dating to 1979 and its Cuvee Royale from as far back as 1966.

 

 


The Champagne producer was founded in 1851, but an earlier generation of the family was already in the business before the French Revolution, and its 47 chalk cellars, carved out 30 meters (98 feet) under the city of Reims, were purchased 150 years ago and date back more than 2,000 years.
