"Henriot Millésime 2012 is characterized by aromatic heterogeneity and complexity. The first nose is intense, almost heady. Yet it is counterbalanced a few seconds later by an incredible elegance with airy and floral notes. The wine is in motion with a succession of the following aromatic notesr: summer flowers, meringue, ripe fruits, then fresh summer currants, chalk, minerality, patina... it is an endless impetus. On the palate, it’s the same ballet coming together, which makes this champagne creation so unique and compelling." Alice Tétienne Cellar Master of Maison Henriot

 A harmony of Grand & Premier Cru villages used to make this with approximately 54% Chardonnay and 46 % Pinot Noir. Trépail, Mailly-Champagne, Verzenay, Avenay in Montagne de Reims Avize, Chouilly in Côtes des Blancs. At least 8 years of ageing on lees Dosage: 6g/L

Notes on vintage 2012Although 2012 started as one of the most worrying years, it ended up being ideal. Episodes of frost, hail and heavy rain occurred in the vineyard during the first months of the year. The weather eventually turned out to be favorable until harvest, with a series of heat waves, which ultimately led to good development of the vegetation and the ripening of grapes

Champagne Henriot was founded in 1808 and Henriot has remained a family affair since then, which is increasingly rare in champagne. It’s important to look closely at one particular individual as his achievements define the house today. Joseph Henriot joined the family business in 195. After his father’s untimely death in 1962, he took over the reins and became the energy and entrepreneurial spirit behind the rise and success of the house.

Henriot have their eyes firmly set on what they describe as ‘craftsman luxury’. They aim to create high quality champagne to a dedicated following of Henriot Champagne lovers. They focus their energies on the chardonnay variety and apart from the Brut Souverain, they do not use pinot meunier anywhere else.
