Description

The freshness and finesse of a vintage Brut champagne

The estate

Founded in 1808, the Henriot Champagne House has been cultivating the Chardonnay grape from the Côte des Blancs with passion and rigour for eight generations. This noble grape variety is the source of the style of each Henriot vintage.

Henriot, a champagne much appreciated at the Dutch Court, would later become a major brand name recognised by the European aristocracy.

Henriot champagnes are distinguished by their finesse, their exceptional elegance, their complexity and their dazzling richness, thanks to a specific ageing period and a quantity of reserve wines for each cuvée.

The vineyard

With a vineyard of 35 hectares, the champagnes of the Maison Henriot are produced in part from the most beautiful terroirs of the Premier and Grand Crus of the Côte des Blancs and the Montagne de Reims, two emblematic vineyards of Champagne.

The wine

A cuvée among the most emblematic of the Maison Henriot, Hemera Brut vintage champagne pays tribute to the Greek goddess of Day. A rare and exceptional champagne, Hemera combines wonderfully in singular vintage a blend of six Grand Crus.

The vintage

The cool and unstable climate throughout the growth cycle gave way to sunny and mild conditions as the harvest approached, which took place in optimal conditions.

Winemaking and ageing

The wines of that year were kept for a minimum of one year in vats in order to preserve the great ageing potential and freshness of this exceptional cuvée. After bottling, the champagne was aged for a minimum of 12 years on its lees before leaving the cellar. The dosage of this Brut Champagne is 5g/L.

Blend

Chardonnay (50%)
Pinot Noir (50%)
