Henriot Blanc de Blancs is a champagne made from 100% Chardonnay by Maison Henriot.
In 1880, when Paul Henriot, 4th generation of the family, married Marie Marguet, from a family owning Grands Crus in the Côte des Blancs, a new grape variety joined the Maison Henriot vineyard: Chardonnay. To pay homage to it, the Henriot family decided to make a Champagne with the same blending philosophy established by Apolline Henriot in 1808.
Henriot Blanc de Blancs is therefore a blend of all the vineyards planted with Chardonnay, expressed through different life periods.
Henriot Blanc de Blancs Champagne Tasting Notes
The tasting reveals an exceptionally fresh minerality, enhanced by the significant proportion of reserve wines, with the promise of excellent cellaring potential.
The nose expresses freshness with delicate notes of citrus fruits and white-fleshed peach. The freshness continues on the palate with great clarity as the hint of lemon continues and melds with buttery brioche notes. Beautiful length and wonderfully rounded on the palate.
