Well hello cuvée Hemera... This Prestige Cuvée is named after the Greek Goddess of Light. Henriot are weighing in with their extended aged cuvée to rival any of the other well established Prestige champagnes like; Pol Roger Winston Churchill, Nicolas Feuillatte Palmes D'Or, Piper Heidsieck RARE and Philipponnat Clos de Goisses. Layered with extended lees ageing of 13 years, expect richly developed notes of coffee bean, tobacco, cacao and even black olive. Super earthy, with a commanding intensity that leaves you suspended in time. Coming from a warm and ripe year, wines from this year need longer time in the cellar to fully express themselves. We've seen some great '05's and this is no exception.
Drink now or cellar for 10-15 years. Stocks limited.
A blend of the finest Grand Cru villages are used to make this with 50 / 50 Pinot Noir Chardonnay. It has been aged on its lees for 13 years with low dosage around 3-4 g/l.
