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.

Weather: The 2012 weather has been hallmarked by many as very challenging but has created some stunning Champagne. Relatively low yields due to various weather conditions throughout the year. The winter months brought some frosts and hail which damaged the early stages of bud burst. August and September were very warm and this helped rescue and give the grapes a stunning maturity.

Technical Information:
Vineyards: 100% Grand & Premier Cru | From 6 crus including Trépail, Mailly-Champagne, Verzenay, Avenay in Montagne de Reims, Avize, Chouilly in Côte des Blancs
Grape Varieties: 54% Chardonnay, 46% Pinot Noir
Lees Ageing: 8 years
Disgorged: 2021
Dosage: 6 g/l
Drink: Now for 8+ years

Tasting Note: This wine impresses with the 2012 charms of bright yet super intense fruit and lovely energetic vibrancy. The style is decadently generous with delicious creme brulee and toast complexity alongside heaps and heaps of ripe white and exotic fruit. On the palate it is age-mellowed yet it ends on a pure, dry, saline and spicy note. Drinking beautifully already. - Tasting note by Essi Avellan MW | October 2020

Essi Avellan
“This ageworthy vintage cuvée is blended from six villages: Trépail, Mailly-Champagne, Verzenay and Avenay on the Montagne de Reims, and Avize and Chouilly in the Côtes des Blancs. Age-derived complexities are already emerging on the overt and richly fruity nose. It has a lovely aromatic depth, with dark, spicy and roasted coffee notes mixing with fruitcake and crystallised fruits of the exotic kind. A complex mix of red and yellow fruit. If the nose is showing evolution, the palate remains remarkably youthful. Concentrated and fruity, with a very tight, saline acid line bringing focus to the rich whole. Already delightful, but this will age tremendously well. Dosage 6g/l”
17.5/20
Jancis Robinson MW
“Very pale gold, plenty of lively mousse on pouring. Intense, rich and inviting toasty aroma, deep and yeasty with ripe lemon and clementine freshness of fruit. Terrific combination of intensity and freshness on the palate, the marked autolytic character giving an impression of sweetness even though it tastes dry. Toasty on the palate and there's still lovely citrus fruit at the core. Fine mousse, vibrant freshness through the deep and long flavours.”
92+/100
William Kelley
“With the 2012 Brut Millésimé, Henriot's positive evolution begins to become apparent. A blend of 54% Chardonnay and 46% Pinot Noir, disgorged with less than six grams per liter dosage, it offers up aromas of citrus zest, white flowers, freshly baked bread and green apple, followed by a medium-bodied, brisk and precise palate. Built around a bright spine of acidity and enlivened by a pillowy mousse, it will take on additional depth and dimension with a few years on cork.”
95/100
Anne Krebiehl MW
“A beautifully reductive nose smoulders with hints of flint, smoke and molten candlewax but also gives glimpses of ripe stone fruit and lemon. The palate carries on in this rich vein that suggests sumptuousness but is in fact rather sculpted. Yes, this manages to present a beautifully profound, rich but utterly precise vision of the 2012 vintage that shows off freshness, sinuousness and beautiful ripeness. Still dew fresh. Lay down or enjoy now.”
94/100
James Suckling
“A fragrant nose with aromas of apples, pears, brioche and candied citrus. Round, silky and balanced with fine bubbles and a flavorful, minerally finish. Full-bodied with a creamy texture and wonderfully soft fruit. Highlights the balance of the 2012 vintage. A blend of 54% chardonnay and 46% pinot noir.”
