The exceptionally high proportion of chardonnay (50%), balanced to perfection with pinot (45% pinot noir and 5% pinot meunier) can be thanked for the unique character of this Champagne. More than 25 cru wines from the finest Champagne terroirs in Cotes des Blancs and Montagne de Reims make up the blend, together with 30% of precious reserve wines.
Well balanced and harmonious on the palate, summoning flavours of brioche, together with crunchy cherries and the sun-kissed blush of white peach. Clean on the finish, with all the freshness of just-picked walnuts.
"Henriot’s entry cuvée lands pre-charged with impressive, toasty bottle age, yet holding admirable vibrancy and energy thanks to its strong Côte des Blancs chardonnay lead. Lemon, red apple and white peach fruit are well progressed into the spectrum of toasty, nutty maturity, culminating in a lively finish of well-defined acid and integrated dosage. A faint hint of dry dustiness interrupts otherwise seamless flow."
