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.
