This Jéroboam was aged on lees for a quarter of a century in Henriot cellars, in France. Disgorged in June 2019. All grapes were harvested from the best crus, exclusively from the year 1996, one of the best vintages in Champagne. Definitely in the top 5% wines in the world. The cuvée comes in luxury wooden gift box.
The extra-ageing allows for notes of brioche, nutty toast and dried apricots. Developing mushrooms and walnuts after a few minutes, you might want to let it open for half-an-hour to allow for the complexity of the aroma to develop in contact with oxygen. Remember this wine hasn't seen the outside world in 23 years!
The Jéroboam format (3L) is perfect for a gift or special celebration. It's time to enjoy the good things in life.
Technical details: 52% Pinot noir, 48% Chardonnay. Vintage 1996. Disgorged June 2019.
