Winemaker's Notes:

Golden yellow with fine bubbles. Brut Millesime has a complex nose with mature notes like leather, the strength of the pinots attesting the year. Rich aromas reveal elegant notes of black fruits, cherry, blackberry, and bilberry. On the palate, the wine has fine maturity, but also richness. Mellow notes of pastries, marzipan with a touch of honey, toast and aromas of gingerbread follow. Fine ripe notes complete the finale.

About Henriot:

Founded in Reims in 1808, Champagne Henriot celebrated its 200th birthday in 2008; joining the very exclusive circle of independent 200-year old family owned and managed champagne houses.

Over the years Champagne Henriot has cultivated a unique style of its own, guided only by the pursuit of the rich, pure expression of Chardonnay. Strict grape requirements enable Henriot to highlight the minerality and precision of their vineyards, while the use of malolactic fermentation, a high percentage of reserve wines in their cuvées and extended lees aging result in wines of great expression, elegance and depth. "Time is our ally and patience our secret" says Joseph Henriot. "They are the fundamental elements to our success."

Today, the Henriot family's expertise is backed not only by their storied history in Champagne but also in their celebrated triumphs in both Burgundy and Chablis with Bouchard Père & Fils, William Fèvre and Villa Ponciago.
