Vintage 2014

Vintage Brut, Champagne Henriot

Product Code: HE1014SC

Tasting Notes

Golden colour with green tints. Fine and consistent bubbles. Great finesse and distinction on the nose with remarkable mixture of fresh, elegant floral notes and ripe aromas of great warmth. Ideal as an aperitif. Its strong personality would go well with more refined fish or seafood dishes. "Nose : intense, almost heady. Incredible elegance with airy and floral notes. Succession of the following aromatic notes : summer flowers, meringue, ripe fruits, then fresh summer currants, chalk, minerality, patina... it is an endless impetus. Mouth : same ballet coming together, which makes this Champagne creation so unique and compelling." The register is fresh, floral, vanilla, greedy. In the mouth the structure is solid, constructive, rectangular. The tannins take place and last after tasting. The freshness is present throughout the tasting, ending with a delicate bitter touch

                    [Notes1] => For over 210 years the Henriot family has remained independent, 
producing World Class Champagne increasingly recognised by wine lovers as a benchmark of quality.  It was in 1880 when Marie Marguet married Paul Henriot and brought with her some of the best Chardonnay plots on the Côte des Blancs that the future was determined. Today Champagne 
Henriot still holds these plots, an exceptionally high proportion of Premier and Grand Crus. Chardonnay is the essence in their blend. The elegant mineral streak that runs through the wines is a direct translation in the glass of these holdings that are so important to the house. 36 months on lees for the NV and 5 to 6 years on the lees for vintage means that Henriot’s style is generous, with brioche tones floating on the infamous chalky core.
This year sees changes in Henriot with the appointment of a new winemaker Alice Tétienne. Alice previously worked at Krug, working both in the 
vineyards and in the winery. She holds a Master in Vine and Terroir, seeking to understand the influence of the raw material and terroir into bottle. This move by Champagne Henriot to select a winemaker so intensely involved in the quality coming from the vineyards is exciting and can be seen as a new juncture for the house.

                    [Notes4] => The henriot family has been in the area since the 16th century and it was in 1808 that they began to sell what had been until then a very private champagne.  this was the birth of the house which is still today managed by those who bear its name.from the choice of the grapes to the bottling, the henriot family is completely involved in the making of the champagne which is to correspond to their idea of perfection.  for nearly two centuries and seven generations, the family has patiently kept its secrets, enriched by tradition and savoir-faire.  it is above all at the time of blending, the highlight of champagne’s tradition, that the house exercises its skill to enhance the character of the grapes which have been rigorously selected from the best vineyards, above all the chardonnay, which is at the heart of the henriot blends.the grapes from each variety, each vineyard and even each plot are vinified separately and ensure an exceptionally vast range of wines to reproduce this inimitable style every year.  the cellar master and members of the family will exercise their skill to produce a delicate, subtle mixture to obtain the perfect blend which, several years later, will give birth to the unique champagne henriot cuvées, famed for their elegance, refinement and exquisite lightness.
