Winemaker Notes

The color is light yellow with lovely golden highlights, while the bubbles are very fine, forming an excellent bead of effervescence. The nose is delicious and mineral, revealing notes of candied raspberries and strawberries and fresh hazelnuts. The attack is lively and fresh, with excellent structure. Notes of dried fruit appear, followed by touches of rosemary and chopped parsley. The finish is long, revealing pastry notes such as brioche and buttered bread.

Critical Acclaim

WW93

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com

The 2006 Henriot Brut Champagne shows an appealing mix of youth and age. The wine's aged notes of crème brûlée and green apples are enticing in the aromas and flavors. The long and flavorful finish suggests a pairing with an oven-baked game hen. Drinks superbly now. (Tasted: September 26, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

JS93

James Suckling

An intense champagne with sliced-apple and pear character on the nose and palate. Full-bodied with layered fruit and acidity. Tangy and refined. Very crisp, with white peach. Half chardonnay and half pinot noir. It was first released late 2013. A very vinous, delicious wine.

Wine Spectator

Seamlessly knit, with vibrant, citrusy acidity and a satiny, creamy mousse layered with poached peach, pastry cream, mineral and crushed hazelnut flavors that expand through the midpalate and the zesty, spiced finish. Drink now through 2030.
