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 Cote des Blancs.

For Henriot, in order to make a Rosé Millésimé, the year must offer strong personalities and expressions of a character. Thanks to its heterogeneity and therefore its aromatic diversity, 2012 vintage was able to provide this profile of wines. Maison Henriot selected the wines for its Rosé Millésimé 2012 blend in the heart of the southern Montagne de Reims in Aÿ, Mareuil-sur-Aÿ, Avenay Val d’Or and Mutigny. Among these wines, there is a particular one from a parcel in Aÿ, that is vinified as red wine and it represents 10% of the blend.

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.

Tasting Note: Rosé Millésimé offers a direct, powerful and charismatic profile. The nose is characterized by smoky and woody notes together with notes of Mirabelle plums and spices. On the palate, these aromas are accompanied by a particularly perceptible structure with an elegant and melting touch of tannins.

Essi Avellan MW
“Medium-deep salmon colour. Rich pinot nose with pencil shavings, licorice and pepper alongside delicious cherry and strawberry fruit. A lot on the palate but not heavy. Gastronomic style with character. Ready to drink but can keep. ”

William Kelley
“Offering up attractive aromas of blood orange, red berries, peach, orchard fruit and brioche, Henriot's just-released 2012 Brut Rosé Millésimé is medium to full-bodied, satiny and enveloping, with fine concentration, ripe but racy acids, a delicate mousse and a long, saline finish. This is one of the more intense, vinous wines to emerge from Henriot in some time, and it's very promising.”

Anne Krebiehl MW
“Confit lemon holds notes of fresh strawberry on the nose. The palate is taut, slender, chiselled and precise with exuberant citrus. A grown-up rosé with a beautiful structure that will allows this to evolve.”
