    Freshly caught sole with slightly salted butter

On the eye: Sparkling, crystalline pale gold with slight green highlights. Abundant effervescence, fine and regular, with fine, delicate bubbles.
On the nose: Pure, concentrated and expressive, with floral (honeysuckle, orange flower, linden), fruity (lemon, dried apricot, almond) and pastry aromas, followed by spicy notes.
On the palate : The attack is dynamic, full and powerful, with aromas of lightly toasted brioche, quince jelly and acacia honey. The clean, delicious finish develops on a light menthol note and shows excellent length.

The Story

Standard bearer of Maison Champagne Henriot’s savoir-faire, Blanc de Blancs delights with its astonishing complexity and length. This cuvée, endowed with excellent freshness, is admirable as aperitif and also as an ideal companion at table.

A 100% Chardonnay cuvee from the best vineyards of the Cote des Blancs. A real gem in the Henriot range, this lively, subtle Champagne magnifies the character of the Chardonnay grape, so dear to the Henriot family. Intense, complex floral nose with a touch of white fruit. Fruity, sharp, lively, persistent in the mouth with a mainly citrus aftertaste.

Inside Information

Champagne Henriot is ne of the oldest family-owned houses in Champagne, enjoying seven generations of uninterrupted ownership since the late 1700s. Unlike other Grande Marques the family focuses on developing strong bonds with the world of gastronomy. The unmistakable Henriot style is the expression of the exclusive use of Grands and Premiers Crus vineyards without the use of Pinot Meunier. Pinot Noir is sourced from the northern slopes of the Montagne de Reims delivering a supportive backbone and elegance, the perfect balancing support to enhance the delicate complexity of Chardonnay, which is sourced primarily from Grands Crus in the Cote des Blancs. Brut NV is aged for four years before release (three on lees and one in bottle). The house speciality of Blanc de Blancs is aged for an extra year and all the larger formats are aged for an extended period relative to their size.
