Description

A fine and elegant Blanc de Blancs by Henriot

The producer

Founded in 1808, the Henriot Champagne House has been growing Chardonnay grapes, from the Côte des Blancs, with passion, high and exacting standards for 8 generations. This noble grape variety will later become the defining style of each of the Henriot vintages.

Henriot champagne, greatly appreciated by the Dutch Court, would later become a leading brand among European aristocracy.

Henriot champagnes stand out due to their finesse, their exceptional elegance, their complexity and their radiant richness, thanks to a specific ageing period and a quantity of reserve wines for each cuvée.

The vineyard

Comprising a 35-hectare vineyard, the champagnes by the Henriot Champagne House are partly produced from the most beautiful Premiers and Grands Crus terroirs of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims.

The blend

The emblematic champagne by the Henriot Champagne House, this Blanc de Blancs mainly comprises Chardonnay from the Côte des Blancs and from the crus of over 7 neighbouring villages.

This cuvée is composed of 30% reserve wines and its dosage is less than 10g/l.

After bottling, this cuvée is kept for 3 to 5 years in the cellars of the Henriot Champagne House.

Henriot’s Blanc de Blanc: Characteristics and tasting tips

The tasting

Colour

Pale gold in colour, the colour of this champagne is sparkling with subtle green highlights. The beautiful effervescence offers fine and regular bubbles.

Nose

The nose is concentrated and expressive. Intense floral (honeysuckle, orange blossom and lime blossom) and fruity aromas blend harmoniously with spicy and brioche notes.

Palate

The palate is ample with a lively attack and reveals aromas of slightly toasted brioche mixed with notes of quince paste and acacia honey. Gourmet and persistent, the finish has a slight mentholated note.

Food and wine pairing

This Blanc de Blancs champagne by Henriot will perfectly express all its finesse and its character as an aperitif. This champagne will also complement (blue lobster from Brittany with lemongrass), fish (sole from a small boat with semi-salted butter) and also with meat (confit of rabbit with wild thyme and mirabelle plums, supreme of farm poultry stuffed with foie gras, grilled potatoes).

Service

For an optimal tasting experience, the recommended serving temperature is 8°C

Cellaring

Enjoy now, this Champagne Blanc de Blancs can be kept in the cellar for 6 to 10 years in order to develop its full complexity.
