Charles Heidsieck champagne is one of the most recognised by the profession. The awards belong to the cellar masters who, over the course of the past two decades, have been named Sparkling Winemaker of the Year thirteen times in the International Wine Challenge (IWC).
The champagnes too have been awarded 11 Grand Or medals, 101 Gold medals (37 between 2008 and 2011), 25 Silver medals and some 32 trophies.
The prestigious Blanc des Millénaires cuvée received a Gold medal in the 2012 IWC. The iconic Brut Réserve cuvée was crowned Wine of the Year by the 2012 Bettane and Desseauve guide. In November 2012, in the Wine Spectator magazine, the Brut Réserve and Rosé Réserve scored 93 points, the Brut Millésime 2000 and the Rosé Millésime 1999 scored 94 points, and the Blanc des Millénaires 1995 scored 96 points.
