Vintage 1995

The name “ Enchanteleur” borne by this rare wine refers to the cellar workers in the days when vinification was carried out only in barrels. Their work consisted in particular of piling up the casks on wooden beams. It was said that they “put the casks on chantiers (gantries)”, that they “enchantelaient”... They traditionally enjoyed the privilege of making for themselves a small Champagne cuvee produced from the finest wines.

Written Notes

Henriot Cuvée Enchanteleurs 1995 Magnum deg. 2011 Nose that just wouldn't open up and kept very muted and elusive offering just orchard fruit, with apples and minerality as partners and hints of brioche and toast. Medium bodied but closed and numb palate with surprisingly racy acidity that overwhelms the fruity attack of lime, apples and peaches. There is an impressive concentration, lovely flavors and a pronounced minerality on the finish but this is a bit four squared, hard and short today. Maybe it will round of with time but I doubt it.
