About Henriot:

This venerable champagne house was founded in 1808 and remains to this day in the hands of the Henriot family. Among the more high-end champagnes Henriot is know for the fine cru vineyards that the majority of its grapes come from as well as the extended ageing of its wines and the fact that it uses only Chardonnay and Pinot Noir.

About the wine:

Symbol of the precise, elegant style of Champagne Henriot’s wines, Brut Souverain appeals with its nose of white flower and citrus fruit notes, then with a balanced, harmonious palate. An ideal partner for aperitif.

Assemblage:

Brut Souverain is made up of a balanced proportion of Chardonnay, in the majority from the Côte des Blancs, and Pinot Noir, mostly from the Montagne de Reims. Pinot Meunier adds a delicate fruity note. Brut Souverain is composed of 20% reserve wines*. More than 25 crus are assembled, including the following village crus: Mesnil sur Oger, Oger, Avize, Cramant, Chouilly, Aÿ, Verzy, Verzenay, Beaumont, Sillery, Mailly Champagne. The composition of Brut Souverain changes from year to year to take account of climate variations and to perpetuate House style. * The percentage of reserve wines may vary from one year to another.

Tasting notes:

The colour is characterised by a brilliant light straw-gold. Effervescence is dense and persistent, with fine, regular bubbles. 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.

Accolades:

Wine Spectator: 92 “This rich Champagne offers notes of roasted hazelnut, brioche and smoke, layered with vibrant acidity and a fine mousse to create an overall sense of finesse. The bright hints of black currant, poached quince, pickled ginger and licorice are fresh and juicy, lingering on the finish.” Drink now through 2023. (Alison Napjus, Wine Spectator)

“A beautifully fine mousse indicates the class of this finely crafted wine. It has some weight, flavors of green apples, with hints of fresh apricots. There is extreme freshness here, the style dry but rich”. Score: 94 (Wine Enthusiast)
