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. A beautifully crafted wine of balance, fine mousse and pleasant complexity. Initially the nose is precise, expressive and refreshing, with notes of citrus and yellow fruit; floral fragrances (vine flowers, elderflowers) and pastry aromas (brioche, toast, grilled almond) follow. On the palate: A lively, fresh and balanced attack, with pastry, spice (vanilla) and fruity (morello cherry, candied plum) notes. The full texture precedes a clean, refreshing finish marked by citrus fruit aromas.
