Champagne Henriot Blanc de Blancs NVRegular price $141.00
Henriot Blanc de Blancs is the cornerstone of Henriot’s signature style showcasing minerality and complexity. It is testament to the sheer virtuosity of the Champagne House with its Premier and Grand Crus vineyards and its rich history, which is inextricably linked to its prestigious chardonnay terroirs.
Crafted from a majority blend of grapes sourced from Premier and Grand cru vineyards in the Côte des Blancs, notably from the villages of Mesnil sur Oger and Avize, precious reserve wines also account for at least 40% of the blend.
Pale gold, glistening and crystal-clear in appearance. The lively bubbles form a delicate,
gossamer cortege in the glass. The bouquet releases a flourish of minerality and bold freshness, together with aromas of citrus fruits and sun-kissed white peach. A bouquet of fresh flowers unleashes notes of honeysuckle and orange blossom, interweaved with lime flower. Fruit aromas redolent of lemon and dried apricot lead the wave, followed by pastry notes and a typical suggestion of fresh butter. Initially lively, generous and powerful on the palate. The hint of fresh lemon lingers and dissolves into butter-laced brioche notes, extended further by quince paste and acacia honey. Lovely, fresh and quite delicious length on the finish.
