The Cuvée des Enchanteleurs 1996 has a bright and radiant pale yellow colour, with golden glints. This champagne has a fine and persistant effervescence. On the nose, frangrances of fresh fruits and stewed citrussy fruits are revealed, which then lead to more floral notes. This offers a light and aery bouquet. On the palate, the 1996 vintage is characterised by its undeniable freshness, proof of its exceptional purity and finesse. The ripeness of this wine from Champagne Henriot slowly expresses itself by unveiling aromas of nuts, caramel and spices.
Wine Advocate-Parker :
The 1996 Brut Cuvee des Enchanteleurs is one of the softer, more forward 1996s readers are likely to come across. Smoke, cantaloupe, pear, flowers, mint, sweet baking spices and apricots are some of the notes that emerge from this layered, sublime Champagne. The finish is long and polished. The 1996 Enchanteleurs is drinking beautifully today, but also appears to have the stuffing to age gracefully for at least another decade. Disgorged: June, 2008. Anticipated maturity: 2009-2019.
