Marks and reviews
Founded in 1808, the Henriot Champagne House has been growing Chardonnay grapes, from the Côte des Blancs, with passion, high and exacting standards for 8 generations. This noble grape variety will later become the defining style of each of the Henriot vintages.
Henriot champagne, greatly appreciated by the Dutch Court, would later become a leading brand among European aristocracy.
Henriot champagnes stand out due to their finesse, their exceptional elegance, their complexity and their radiant richness, thanks to a specific ageing period and a quantity of reserve wines for each cuvée.
Comprising a 35-hectare vineyard, the champagnes by the Henriot Champagne House are partly produced from the most beautiful Premiers and Grands Crus terroirs of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims.
The emblematic champagne by the Henriot Champagne House, this Blanc de Blancs mainly comprises Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and from the crus of over 7 neighbouring villages.
This cuvée is composed of 30% reserve wines and its dosage is less than 10g/l.
After bottling, this cuvée is kept for 3 to 5 years in the cellars of the Henriot Champagne House.
Pale gold in colour, the colour of this champagne is sparkling with subtle green highlights. The beautiful effervescence offers fine and regular bubbles.
The nose is concentrated and expressive. Intense floral (honeysuckle, orange blossom and lime blossom) and fruity aromas blend harmoniously with spicy and brioche notes.
The palate is ample with a lively attack and reveals aromas of slightly toasted brioche mixed with notes of quince paste and acacia honey. Gourmet and persistent, the finish has a slight mentholated note.
