Description & Technical Information
-
Henriot Champagne was officially founded in 1808 under Apolline Henriot. She was the niece of the very famous Abbé Godinot, an erudite man who contributed to improvements in viticulture and the making of the Champagne wine. Apolline, an enterprising woman of great character, sold her wines both in France and became a huge success with royalty and Champagne Henriot became the favourite firstly at the Dutch court, then in Austria and Hungary. She passed on her savoir-faire to her grandson, Ernest and there the Henriot family tradition was born. From generation to generation, the House of Henriot has devoted all its talent to creating the most superb wines from grapes carefully selected from the great terroirs on the Montagne de Reims and the Côte des Blancs.

Apolline Henriot believed Chardonnay to be a light with multiple intensities that she wanted to show to the world. When Paul Henriot, 3rd generation of the family, married Marie Marguet in 1880, owner of vines in the Côte des Blancs, Apolline’s desire for Chardonnay is fulfilled, twenty years after her passing. In order to pay tribute to this new vineyard for Maison Henriot, the family started to craft a champagne made exclusively from the lands planted with Chardonnay.

Weather: 2014 was characterised by mild temperatures and frequent rainfall.There was some frost in late March but thankfully it did not cause any significant damage.This was followed by a spell of hot weather which brought forward the vine’s vegetative cycle by 10 days. Full flowering began in June. Summer was a combination of dry, wet and cold spells. The year was marked by an unprecedented outbreak of disease, which endangered the fragile Pinot Noir skins. Harvest took place from 8th to 20th September.The Chardonnays combined notes of white blossom with citrus notes and their palate full and acidic.The Pinot Noirs had subtle, fresh aromas of tart white fruits and scattered notes of red fruits.They showed a vivid and fresh structure on the palate.

Tasting Note: A great generosity characterizes this champagne. The diversity of wines selected in the blend offers an ample aromatic range in which exoticism and exuberance are balanced by elegance and finesse. Multiple aromas intertwine bringing great complexity from flambé pineapple and fresh citrus fruit notes to wet chalk and subtle pastry aromas. On the palate, this champagne has an incredible velvety texture accompanied by an extraordinary freshness.”

William Kelley
“The latest rendition of Henriot's NV Blanc de Blancs is showing well, opening in the glass with notes of nectarine, citrus oil, toasted bread and light reduction. Medium to full-bodied, fleshy and enveloping, with a generous core of fruit, lively acids and a pretty pinpoint mousse, it concludes with a saline finish. This is a comparatively rich iteration of this cuvée, and it should pick up additional complexity with age.”
17/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Pale greenish straw. Powerfully aromatic and then bracingly crisp – actually quite surprisingly in view of the rather evolved nose. A real wake-up call of a wine with a certain electric minerality. Bone dry. Very much a superior aperitif style. Seriously zesty – lime zest? But it's admirably long. And the mousse is well judged. Young winemaker Alice Tétienne presented this online with impressive conviction.”
