Description

Champagne Henriot Blanc de Blancs NV is made from 100% Chardonnay and is the cornerstone of Henriot’s signature style showcasing minerality and complexity.

The Henriot family can trace their lineage back to 1640 in Reims where they worked in textile and wine brokerage, however Champagne Henriot was not officially founded until 1808 by Apolline Henriot. Champagne Henriot became a huge success with royalty and was a favourite at the Dutch and Austrian courts and with the Hapsburgs in Hungary. House of Henriot is one of last independent and family-owned Champagne producers and is devoted to creating the most superb wines from grapes carefully selected from the great “terroirs” on the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.

Champagne Henriot Blanc de Blancs is crafted from a majority blend of grapes sourced from Premier and Grand cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, notably from the villages of Mesnil sur Oger and Avize, precious reserve wines also account for at least 40% of the blend. It is only after resting for 4-5 years in the the cool, dark cellars in Reims, under the watchful eye of Laurent Fresnet, Chief Winemaker, that this 100% Chardonnay champagne can be enjoyed. The Blanc de Blancs blend also contains a small quantity of our Henriot’s prestige Cuve 38 champagne. This wine, made in the style of a perpetual reserve and crafted exclusively from Grand Cru chardonnay, is unique to the Champagne House and expresses its quintessential savoir-faire and originality. Dosage is less than 8 g/L.

Tasting Notes

From Henriot:

Pale gold, glistening and crystal-clear in appearance. The lively bubbles form a delicate, gossamer cortege in the glass.

The bouquet releases a flourish of minerality and bold freshness, together with aromas of citrus fruits and sun-kissed white peach. A bouquet of fresh flowers unleashes notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom, interweaved with lime flower. Fruit aromas redolent of lemon and dried apricot lead the wave, followed by pastry notes and a typical suggestion of fresh butter.

Initially lively, generous and powerful on the palate. The hint of fresh lemon lingers and dissolves into butter-laced brioche notes, extended further by quince paste and acacia honey. Lovely, fresh and quite delicious length on the finish.
