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. Mostly drawing from Premier Cru and Grand Cru villages, the chardonnay-dominant champagne is precise and elegant.
66% Premier and Grand Cru vineyards - 50% Chardonnay, 45% Pinot Noir, 5% Pinot Meunier & 30% reserve wine. 4 years aging on its lees.

A touch of vanilla-laced pastry cream sweetness accents this fresh and focused Champagne, with a fine mousse. This is well-balanced by crunchy acidity and flavors of lemon peel, green pear and spring blossom.
