To celebrate the event, Arne Ronold, Scandinavia’s first Master of Wine and editor of Vinforum, joined Charles Heidsieck’s International House Communications Director Christian Holthausen for a special tasting at The Culinary Academy in Oslo.
“The champagnes from Charles Heidsieck are of outstanding quality and the buyers at the monopoly have happily realised this,” says Ronold.
“For the moment, the only place in the world where you can find a larger selection of wines from Charles Heidsieck is 32 meters underground in our Gallo-Roman chalk cellars in Reims,” added Holthausen, referring to the House’s historic caves in the heart of the Champagne region.
Sales of premium champagne continue to climb in Scandinavia, with the Comité Interprofessionnel du Vin du Champagne reporting a 17.4% increase of sales in Norway in 2010 vs. 2009 alone.
Champagne Charles Heidsieck is distributed in Norway by Maxxium, part of the Edrington Group.
