Founded in Reims in 1808, Henriot is in the exclusive club of independent 200-year old family-owned and managed Champagne houses.
Henriot's Blanc de Blancs is the purest expression of Chardonnay grapes. It spends 4-5 years on the lees and is made using 30% reserve wines, giving it great richness and depth. A wine of superb freshness that charms with its astonishing complexity and length.
This Champagne is a sparkling, crystalline pale gold with slight green highlights and abundant effervescence. Henriot Blanc de Blancs begins with concentrated and expressive aromas: floral (honeysuckle, orange flower, linden), fruity (lemon, dried apricot, almond) and pastry scents, followed by spicy notes. On the palate the attack is dynamic, full and powerful, with notes of lightly toasted brioche, quince jelly and acacia honey. The clean, delicious finish develops on a light menthol note and shows excellent length. Pair alongside lobster, fresh sole with butter, herb-roasted rabbit or foie gras-stuffed chicken.
