Blanc de Blancs Champagne NV

90 points, “It's an excellent Blanc de Blancs that comes recommended.” – Wine Advocate

Since 1808, Champagne Henriot, one of the last independent and family-owned houses in Champagne, has pursued a tradition of excellence – a fragile balance between delicacy, intensity, and purity. For seven generations, the family has selected only the very best vineyards, concentrated on the purest Chardonnay, and has upheld the utmost respect for time in order to ensure each cuvée they produce has an opportunity to reach its full expression.

The review from Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate above is one corroborated by a matching 90-point score from Decanter Magazine and 91 points from respected American wine critic James Suckling. And we have to say that with grapes coming from predominantly Premier and Grand Cru sites (notably Mesnil sur Oger and Avize), this is a luminous expression of Henriot’s terroir. Blended with just a little of their prestige Cuve 38 Champagne, it’s aged deep in their cellars for 4-5 years before release. The result is a super-stylish wine brimming with salinity, chalk, flint, lemon sorbet, crunch white peach, dried apricot, orange blossom, honey and buttery brioche. A stunning Champagne that nobody should miss out on.
