Description:
Standard bearer of Maison Champagne Henriot's savoir-faire, Blanc de Blancs delights with its astonishing complexity and length.

This cuvee, endowed with excellent freshness, is admirable as aperitif and also as an ideal companion at table.


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.

Food pairing: Court-bouillon of Brittany blue lobster with lemon balm. Freshly caught sole with slightly salted butter. Conserve of young rabbit with wild thyme and Mirabelle plums. Farm-raised chicken supreme stuffed with foie gras, grenaille apples in the old style.

Producer Information

>In the 16th century , the Henriot family settled in Champagne.
In 1794, Nicolas Simon Henriot, from a bourgeois local family who had been in the cloth business since the 16th century, married Apolline Godinot, niece of the Abbe Godinot, an eminent scholar whose work had contributed to advances in viticulture. This marriage sealed a fruitful family alliance which was to give birth to champagne Henriot.
The House of Henriot was officially founded by Apolline Henriot in 1808, a widow of Nicolas Simon Henriot. She undertook the task of making available the very private Champagne Henriot in her father's vineyard in Bouzy and sold her wines under the name "Veuve Henriot Aine".
It was in 1808, under Appoline Henriot, that Champagne Henriot was officially founded. She was the niece of the very famous Abbe Godinot, an erudite man who contributed to improvements in viticulture and the making of the Champagne wine.
Appoline, an enterprising woman of great character, sold her wines both in France and abroad.
The champagne wines became a huge success with royalty and it was only natural that Champagne Henriot became the favourite firstly at the Dutch court, then in Austria and Hungary with the Hapsburgs.
She passed on her savoir-faire to her grandson, Ernest and a family tradition was born.
The House cultivates a very particular style, valuing time, patience, and the pursuit of perfection. It chooses the best wines from the best "crus", demanding the most careful work from the vineyard and cellar workers.
The family's knowledge of the terroirs and blending skill makes the wines of Champagne Henriot regognizable among all others.
Champagne Henriot is commmited to offering wines with a strong personality centered around the family's philosophy of wine making.
