Winemaker Notes

Sparkling, crystalline pale gold with slight green highlights. Abundant effervescence, with fine, delicate bubbles. Pure, concentrated and expressive, with floral (honeysuckle, orange flower, linden), fruity (lemon, dried apricot, almond) and pastry aromas, followed by spicy notes. The attack is dynamic, full and powerful, with aromas of lightly toasted brioche, quince jelly and acacia honey. The clean, delicious finish develops on a light menthol note and shows excellent length.

Lovely as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to dishes such as foie gras terrine, roasted chicken, lobster rolls, smoked salmon or sushi.

Critical Acclaim

Wine Enthusiast

This is great Champagne, in the bottle-aged Henriot style. It's a classic Chardonnay, ripe, creamy, packed with yellow fruits, and finely balanced with a great waft of toast. A high percentage of older vintages in the blend gives this wine richness, maturity, without ever losing its crisp edge.

Over the years, I have grown quite fond of the Henriot Champagnes. I am a big fan of the wines' elegance. The Blanc de Blanc is an exquisite wine. Fresh and bright with ripe apples and frothy on the palate, this wine calls for a night at a sushi bar. You bring the Henriot, and I will buy dinner.

Wine Spectator

A bright, finely tuned Blanc de Blancs, with a subtle tang of salinity and flavors of lemon meringue pie, glazed apricot, pink grapefruit granita and blanched almond. Creamy and mouthwatering, with a lingering smoke-tinged finish.

A nicely captured reductive edge here, this holds white peach and apple aromas fresh with dried white flowers and a very gentle nutty, cashewy thread. The palate's bright, creamy and fruity; it throws big fruit flavors upwards with crunchy acidity.
