It’s astounding to think that The House of Henriot has been in the same family for over 200 years. Their demanding standards, like their champagne, remain the same consistently from year to year, century after century. Their Blanc de Blancs is one of the benchmark wines for the style in all of Champagne. The fruit hails from top Chardonnay villages, including Cotes des Blancs (Avize, Chouilly, Le Mesnil and Grauves) and Montagne de Reims (Trépail, Villers and Vaudemange).
80% Premier and Grand Cru vineyards - 100% Chardonnay & 40% reserve wine. 5 years aging. "Light straw colour, toasty developed bouquet, very Champagne-like, creamy, slightly honeyed. But it's also very complex for its station, revealing a big proportion of aged reserve wines. Quite high acidity, which refreshes the palate and balances out the dosage liqueur. Clean, dry finish. Very good length and balance. A very smart wine." - 96 Points Huon Hooke
